Dumbbells are convenient, versatile pieces of fitness equipment that are great for working out at home. To choose the best ones for you, consider how you're going to use them.
Aerobic dumbbells are around 1 to 3 pounds and are usually plastic coated for an easy grip. They're used to add intensity and resistance training to aerobic workouts.
Fixed-weight dumbbells are the most common type. They're non-adjustable solid weights used in a wide variety of exercises. While you may want to begin your workout regimen with a single pair of fixed-weight dumbbells, bear in mind that you may end up needing different weights for different types of exercises. For example, since your quads are naturally bigger and stronger than your biceps, you'll need heavier weights for quad exercises than for bicep exercises. You may also need to buy heavier dumbbells as your strength improves. So expect to buy a few pairs over time.
Adjustable dumbbells are a convenient, compact alternative to buying multiple pairs of fixed-weight dumbbells. They consist of a small metal bar with weight disks that can be easily slid on and off.
At Walmart, you'll find a wide selection of dumbbells and other weights at Every Day Low Prices. Save money. Live better.
