HOW TO CHOOSE DANTS FOR FITNESS - how to choose by weight, which is better

In order for fitness dumbbells to lie in your hand like a glove, and workouts are enjoyable, consider two parameters.

  • Ergonomics of the design. We took a solid dumbbell and are doing it. But it will only work for limited training options. In a collapsible one, you can increase the weight every few days or weeks. When choosing collapsible shells, the quality of the system for attaching the pancakes to the bar is important.
    • The nut is secure. But for the safety of training, you need to control the depth of the thread.
    • The screw lock is good. Ideal for lightweight dumbbells. Can come off heavy discs.
    • The spring is excellent. Only when fastening firmly fix the pancakes in the groove.
  • Coating type defines appearance and practicality.

How to choose dumbbells by weight

All that glitters is not gold. Therefore, you need to choose "your" weight of dumbbells right in the store. Practice, swing your biceps 12-15 times.

  • If it's easy to raise your arms with weights, you need heavier shells.
  • Hardly five times - try a lighter weight.
  • The last five repetitions are a little hard - that's what you need.

For beginners (girl or woman), it is better to take dumbbells up to three kilograms. They develop small muscles well, which quickly get used to a monotonous load. After two weeks, make it harder for yourself - handle heavier shells with greater speed and endurance.
