Every home gym needs dumbbells. They are portable, take up little space and can be purchased for every fitness level. Strength training is an extremely important part of fitness, even for women. In the past, women avoided strength training and stuck to cardiovascular routines for fear of gaining too much bulk. But, we now know that strength training is important for everyone, even if you have no interest in building muscle mass. Lean muscle burns more calories, even when resting, than fat, so building muscle is an important part of maintaining a healthy weight. Because of this knowledge, more women than ever participate in strength training, but most of them use lighter weights, going up to about 10 pounds. Lighter weights can be used as part of a cardiovascular routine or on their own.
Dumbbells are one of the best investments for your home gym because they can be used by everyone in the family if you have a variety of weights. There are some things to think about when you’re shopping for them, however.
You’ll first want to decide whether fixed weight dumbbells or variable weight ones will work best for you. Fixed weight dumbbells work well for those who just want to tone up a little, or have a specific weight in mind. However, a more flexible set of weights is more versatile for the person who wants to push themselves to greater strength. If more than one person is working out at the same time, keep in mind that one set of variable weight dumbbells won’t allow two people to lift at the same time. In this case, several sets of fixed weights may be a better choice.
Storage is another consideration in dumbbells. Lots of sets of fixed weights take up lots of space, while a variable weight set can be more easily stored away. You may also want to consider weights with a neoprene or other coating, since cast iron weights with no coating can be very damaging to hardwood or ceramic floors.
The Valeo Neoprene weights fit the bill quite nicely for many weight trainers, especially women. They are coated with neoprene, which protects your floors and which makes them comfortable and non slip to hold. They come in a wide variety of sizes, so you can start at whatever beginning weight is comfortable for you. This particular weight is ten pounds, which is a great beginning weight for men and an intermediate weight for women.
This weight is especially good for women because of its smaller size. Even women with the smallest hands won’t have trouble gripping it. And because it is shorter in length, it doesn’t get in the way of anything when you’re using it. Each weight in the set comes in a different color, so you can tell your 10 pound one from the others quickly if you buy more than one. If you do want a full set, however, these weights are available in 2; 3; 5; and 8 pounds, too.
This entire set of weights is a good choice for beginning exercisers. Since the weights are sold individually, you can buy just a couple to get started and add new ones, one or two at a time, as your strength increases. They are also a great choice for the person who just needs one or two sets for toning up, rather than looking to build bulk by regularly increasing the weight lifted.
There are always considerations to make when purchasing fitness equipment. In the case of these weights, it is important to consider your storage space, particularly if you plan to add more weights as you gain strength. You could, over time, have a lot of these weights around the house! If you do plan to continually increase weight as you go, a dial up or variable weight set might be a better choice. Sets like these allow you to own just one set of weights, but increase the weight by adding plates or dialing up the weight. They take up less space, but cost more money. For fixed weights, it’s often a good idea to buy a rack for storage, both to make them look less cluttered and to get them up off the floor, since bending over to the floor to pick up weights can be bad for the back.
You should also take your time shopping around for weights if you plan to buy online. Shipping weights can often be expensive, so you want to look for an online retailer who offers free shipping or simply buy the weights at your local discount or sporting goods store to avoid paying shipping at all.
This ten pound weight and the others in the set are a great choice for many men and women. They are moderately priced, come in several different weights and are coated to be less damaging.
Users who have purchased weights from Valeo have been very happy with them, and have reported that they are very durable and offer a very comfortable grip. Each size in the set comes in a different color, making it quick and easy to determine which weight you’re looking for at a glance. They are also available from a wide variety of retailers at a very good price, so you don’t have to spend a lot to of money get a good workout.
Check this ten pound weight, and the others in the set out online and from your local retailers, so that you can get the best deal. You’ll often find them on sale, or with a free shipping option. However, even at their full retail price, they are a bargain. All the Valeo Neoprene hand weights are comfortable and durable, and they are sized perfectly for women. This is a purchase you’re almost certain to be happy with, and will use for a long time to come, particularly if you elect to add to this purchase by completing the set.
