Dumbbell exercises for men

When it comes to exercising, it is always important to emphasize the importance of proper execution of various forms and techniques. Even though physical activity creates a lot of positive effects for the body, some injury can happen easily and that must be avoided. To prevent problems like spasms, strain, cramps etc., it is important to include warming up and stretching before the training session and stretching after the session is done. This is essential for avoiding the mentioned medical issues and also important for better performance in a training session. Warming and stretching is important and should be done no matter what type of the exercises is applied.

The forms

Cardio and muscle mass building are basic types of exercising and those have different final results. Even though both of those types burn fat tissue, it is much more emphasized with cardio workout. This is because muscle contraction happens relatively slow and that allows oxygen to enter the muscle cell and engage itself in the process of contracting. This further prevents the accumulation of the lactic acid, which is responsible for exhausting the muscle. Strength needed for executing cardio exercises is at low level, so it can last for a long time, which is really a great thing for a fat burning process. Things are a bit different when it comes to muscle mass building. In order to lift certain weight, usually a moderate or big weight, an explosive contraction is needed, which does not allow the oxygen to help, more precisely, the oxygen is too slow here. This means that lactic acid level increases drastically and at some point, it will stop the contraction process.

The equipment

People should really get as much info as possible, even before going to a gym. This will make them create a better plan for creating a perfectly muscled body. Also, there are people more interested in home workout, which requires some slightly different things. Usually there is no much space for the heavy equipment, so most of the people use dumbbells. They are small and can be stored in a closet. Even a barbell is not that big, but some use barbell only for a bench press, so if that is not possible, barbells are left for the gym. Dumbbells can be used as a barbell too, with slight modification. For example, bench press can be done with dumbbells too, only with a slightly rotation in the joints when lifting for additional effect. One of the most popular dumbbell exercises is biceps curl, which is the reason why many people buy dumbbells in the first place.
