Simple & Easy Dumbbell Exercises For Powerful Fitness Results

dumbbell workout

One of the big problems in the fitness industry today is this desire to make everything just way too complicated, from the individual exercises to the training routines. Then there’s all the fancy gadgets and machines in all the gyms.

Because of this, too many people feel overwhelmed and never even start a fitness program because it seems way too complicated. Or, they quit not long after starting for the same reason.

The great news is, it doesn’t have to be that way. Not only can exercises and training programs be simple and easy to do, they can get you even better results in less time than those complicated programs!

How is that possible, you ask? Firstly you need a proper plan. If you just turn up at the gym, wander around aimlessly doing a bit of this and bit of that, your results are going to be underwhelming. If you follow a well designed exercise plan, like P90X or the popular Adonis Golden Ratio System (does it really work?) then you know that many thousands of people before you have used it and got results.

Next, enter the dumbbell! It’s a simple piece of equipment, it doesn’t take up much space, it’s easy to use, it’s versatile and it gets results.

Just combine easy dumbbell exercises with some simple training techniques and strategies and you’ll have a lifetime of results producing fitness training ahead of you! Read More »
