Don't Be a Dumbbell: Work Out With Weights

from HealthDay via U.S. News & World Report

This article refers to an ACSM brochure on selecting free weights.

Strength training needs to be part of every exercise plan, but you don't have to join a health club to reap its benefits.

You can create a state-of-the-art home gym, but an inexpensive approach will work just as well.

First, pick out a 10-by-10-foot space where you can exercise without tripping over or bumping into anything. It doesn't have to be a dedicated area as long as you can move any furniture out of the way when you're ready to work out.

Next, choose your equipment. The American College of Sports Medicine suggests starting with a few dumbbells or resistance bands plus a stability ball.

If it's in your budget, an adjustable bench adds variety to upper body workouts. more
