How do I train with dumbbells and which exercises are suitable for training with dumbbells?
Training with dumbbells promotes your body stability and is demanding in terms of coordination. Your torso serves as an anchor in strength training during exercises with free weights and has to do a lot of holding work. With the dumbbells you train not only your biceps but also your triceps, the lateral back muscles and your chest. Depending on the type of movement, the number of repetitions, the weight and your endurance, you can make your training with dumbbells even more effective.
One of the most popular dumbbell exercises is the hammer curl with dumbbell. Stand in a stable position. Your arms are slightly in front of your body with the dumbbells, palms facing forward. Now bring the dumbbells to your shoulders by bending your elbows. Hold briefly and lower arms again. This dumbbell exercise actively trains the biceps and arm flexors.
Start your dumbbell training with different exercises and small weight plates. Increase the number of weight plates as well as the number of exercises and executions from workout to workout.
