DUMBBELLS: SMALL… BUT TOUGH!
Small and inexpensive, these toning accessories have all you need! They allow you to stay active at home or outdoors and to work on strength training at your own pace.
Dumbbells can be used by everyone and at any age. They are used by those who want to maintain their figure and stay in shape even at home. A colour for each weight: when starting out, choose the lightest dumbbells.
Small dumbbells are designed for strength training or rehabilitation. They allow you to work on your entire upper body: arms, upper arms, shoulders, trapezius, back, pecs, and the entire upper back.
Lightweight, they help guide each exercise by stabilising your movement. Dumbbells increase the resistance against your muscles, which will become more flexible and powerful over the course of your workouts.
WORKING OUT WITH DUMBBELLS?
PREPARING YOUR MUSCLES FOR YOUR WORKOUT
Before each workout, it is essential to warm up your body correctly. The 5 to 10 minutes that you spend are necessary to prevent any risk of injury. Do the following exercises:
- Roll your shoulders in one direction, then the other
- Raise and lower your shoulders several times
- Do a set of side tilts and rotations of your head to the right and left
- Do two or three sets of side raises without dumbbells or with a very light weight
BE IN THE RIGHT STANCE
Your back should be straight, tummy tight, legs bent and hip-distance apart. To work effectively, you need to control each movement as you raise and lower, and take care to engage the muscle you are targeting.
The most common error is in doing the motion casually, without paying attention to the muscle that's working. In all exercises you do, take care to control the force of the contraction, so that only the targeted muscle moves and the rest of the body isn't working.
