Why You Must Use The Right Dumbbells For Your Workout

A dumbbell exercise program is effective with the right equipment These days, more so that in decades gone by, dumbbells are growing in popularity in fitness centers and health clubs across the United States.

In addition, they are increasingly being purchased by people who want to include them in their personal gyms at home so they can conduct a dumbbell exercise program in the comfort of their own home when it suits them best.

Rubber encased dumbbells are usually the most popular choice of dumbbells as they offer a myriad of benefits to the user.

While they may be made from high quality cast iron material to give the desired weight effect, they are coated with rubber for added protection, comfort during the dumbell arm workouts and style - the rubber is available in different colors.

Not only are rubber encased dumbbells comfortable to use and safe to use but if you accidentally drop one of them on the floor they will not damage the floor or other equipment because of the rubber exterior. Similarly they will also make a softer thud as opposed to a loud crash with an iron dumbbell.

Iron weights can make a loud continuous clanking sound and can be distracting if you are counting repetitions where as rubber dumbbells allow you to use dumbbells in any way and even drop them on the floor without making much noise.

This is ideal for conducting dumbell arm workouts in the home. The rubber used on rubber encased dumbbells is usually of a very high quality, is odorless, does not crack and is designed to be extremely durable, so the need for maintenance is almost non existent.

On the other hand, chrome dumbbells will also be a welcome addition to any personal fitness room. These dumbbells and the dumbbell weights are usually polished with high grade chrome to give optimum functionality.

Chrome adjustable dumbbells are usually sold in 5 pound increments so you can build and decrease your dumbbell weights as your fitness program changes. These adjustable dumbbells give you the flexibility to quickly and easily perform a variety of exercises according to what you are doing with your strength exercises.

Dumbbells - whether they are rubber encased or chrome adjustable dumbbells -can be purchased easily and usually cheaply from stores or catalogs selling exercise equipment online.

Online prices are generally lower than those of the traditional stores and the dumbbells can be sent directly to your home -sometimes even with free shipping and insurance.
