Different workouts and exercises work for different people. Along with knowing what works best for your body, it is also important to remember you should always enjoy your workouts. I am always partial to the benefits of weight lifting. If there was one piece of exercise equipment that I think everyone should have, if they are just starting a fitness journey, is a pair of dumbbells.
One of the benefits of relying on dumbbells for the majority of your workouts is how inexpensive they are. You can find a pair of dumbbells anywhere (even Five Below has them for only $5). Weight lifting can be a costly endeavor, whether it be paying for a monthly gym membership or buying all the equipment to have in your own house. Purchasing a pair of dumbbells can help cut the cost by a significant amount.
Dumbbells are also convenient. I am someone who loves exercising outside, so I enjoy using dumbbells for most of my workouts, since I can use them anywhere. Also, if you are someone who wants to stay dedicated to their workouts, you can take them with you and continue to exercise while on vacation.
Another reason dumbbells are a beneficial piece of equipment to have when working out is because they are versatile. Even if you have only one set of dumbbells that are around five or 10 pounds each, you can increase the amount of reps you are doing to help make the workout more challenging. On the other hand, if you have a set of dumbbells that are around 30 pounds or more, you could do fewer reps with a heavier amount of weight. Despite what some people may think, there are benefits to both options, and they are both great choices.
I think a pair of dumbbells is one of the best options for workout equipment because there is a limitless amount of exercises that you can do with them. If you do not know many exercises, you can always do some research; there are so many options to choose from. All the exercises are at different levels in terms of difficulty, and they are exercises that can help you strive to do better and improve each time.
Overall, there are many benefits to weight lifting which is why both women and men should include it in their workouts. For the best fitness equipment for weights, I think you can never go wrong with a pair of dumbbells.
