Here’s One Piece of Equipment You Just Can’t Miss in Your Home Gym

Dumbbells are an integral part of any fitness routine. With dumbbells, you can work out every single muscle in the body but with home-gyms, the space is often limited and thus having weights from 5 Kgs to 30 Kgs isn’t a possibility and this why adjustable dumbbells are more commonly found in home gyms but that’s not all.


Here are more reasons for you to invest in adjustable dumbbells.

1. They’re inexpensive

Well like I mentioned above, having a different set of dumbbell or each workout set isn’t a viable option as it can cost you around $1000-$1500. Wondering how much a set of adjustable dumbbell will cost?

Well, less than half, to be precise a durable and compact adjustable dumbbell will cost about $200-$400 plus you’ll get a rack which makes storing the dumbbells easy. The budget option can vary from $70-$150 and are ideal for newbies.

2. They’re convenient to use

If you’re looking for a versatile gym equipment the adjustable dumbbell checks all the boxes. That’s because with one dumbbell set you can switch weight between 5 lbs. to 50 lbs. in increments of 2-2.5 lbs. thus providing you greater flexibility to get precise weight settings.

Also, its compact design and stand rack ensure a neat and tidy way of putting it away post every workout. High-end models are ergonomically designed and come with padding to protect hands from blisters etc. Their non-slip feature makes them ideal for workouts in hot and humid conditions too.

3. They’re Ideal for Everyone

Whether you’re a newbie or a full-time gym trainer, adjustable dumbbells provide the most effective and convenient alternative to regular dumbbells.

For beginners, the easy weight adjustability will keep them motivated whereas the pros can use the versatility and flexibility provided for a quick, hard-hitting, isolated or low weight workout. FitnessGuyd has shared a multitude of workouts for beginners.

For beginners, the easy weight adjustability will keep them motivated whereas the pros can use the versatility and flexibility provided for a quick, hard-hitting, isolated or low weight workout.

To beginners, we’d advise getting adjustable dumbbells with good padding and non-slip grip as it prevents blisters and makes workout even easier.

4. They’re Versatile

A point I have been repeating quite often in the article but for good reason. Free weights offer a whole different challenge in any workout that machines lack. With

With machines, it’s often easier to lift heavy and the motion is often restricted whereas free weights are harder to lift, engage more muscles and thus are indispensable.

With a single adjustable dumbbell, you can perform all the curls, presses etc. without having to waste time on changing dumbbells for each set.

With a twist of the lock or switch of the pin, you can get the ideal weight settings in seconds thus speeding up your workouts and leaving you enough time for rest and a better post-workout recovery.…
