Weight lifting combined with cardio exercise brings great results. For your body’s overall fitness, you should do all the exercises in a balanced way. Dumbbells, barbells, and rods are used in weight lifting exercises. Rubina Ratnakar brings you a guide to dumbells so that you can buy the right ones.

Dumbbells are divided into three broad categories namely fixed, adjustable, and studio dumbbells. They further come in various shapes and are made from different stuff most commonly metal and rubber.

Most gyms have fixed dumbbells. Dumbbells come in the range of 1 kg to 100 kg. The most common range of dumbbells in the gym is 2 to 30 kgs. The gyms that are designed for professional weightlifters may have a weight of up to 100kg.

Fixed dumbbells come in a large range of weights. They are very hard to wear and will last for a longer time. Since they are made from rich metal, they are considered to be high-quality products.

If you are thinking about buying fixed dumbbells, rubber and metal are two good options. Rubber may be a bit more convenient among the two as there is less wear and tear, no risk of scratches, is non-sonorous, and is easy to place.

Adjustable dumbbells are another kind of dumbbells in which you probably have one rod and adjustable weights. You can put as much as weight you want to lifts. These kinds of dumbbells come in sets. If you are thinking of making a small gym at home, adjustable sets may be the right option for you. They are good at saving space.

If you want dumbbells for the other forms of workouts, studio dumbbells will be the right choice. They are completely coated with rubber that makes them easier to hold. They are comparatively cheap and can be brought in large quantities.



You should buy any of these categories or a combination of all of them for your gym or home. We advise you to test the dumbbells for grip and convenience in person.
