Benefits of Workout at Home With Dumbbells So many people asked me can I get the same workout at home with using dumbbells? My answer to this is absolutely!! There are so many advantages to using dumbbells to workout especially if you are on a limited budget and can’t afford to purchase other equipment such as kettlebells, barbells, and bands. Dumbbells are great for strength training and there are a lot of variety you can do in your workout that you can’t even get from other equipment like barbells. Today I want to share with you 4 great benefits to dumbbell workouts and tell you about my new and upcoming online strength program that will be offered later this year.
Benefits to choosing Dumbbells over other equipment
- They are more joint friendly then barbell exercise. For example try doing a barbell chest press then do it with a dumbbell there is much more flexibility for your joints when you use a dumbbell.
- Dumbbells don’t take up very much room. You can also purchase power block adjustable dumbbels which can go up to 70 pounds with one block and use very little space.
- Dumbbells allow for unilateral training so both arms are going to get the same workout. If your using a barbell when you do a bicep curl you tend to use more of your right arm.
- Some exercises are safer when using dumbbells. When I am training a client who is new to exercise I always use dumbbells versus barbells because if they’re doing for example a reverse lunch and they lose their balance they can get hurt where as if they’re doing a reverse lunge maybe the balance with dumbbells they can just toss the dumbbells and just continue on without the risk of injury!
