A couple of weeks back I bought a very basic set of dumbbells in Argos.
They’re not complicated and they’re not fancy.
The set is made of 2 x 1kg, 2 x 1.5 kg and 2 x 3kg with a handy little storage “tree” to keep them tidy in my room.
Like so many things that I buy with good intentions the dumbbells sat in a corner in their box until this weekend, when I finally decided that I needed to start using them.
Of course I didn’t really have a clue what I was meant to be doing with them – apart from lifting them 🙂
Fortunately there’s a basic leaflet in the box that gives you a couple of exercises you can try to start with, while there’s also quite a few sites with tips, advice and nicely illustrated exercise routines that you can follow.
Doing a few repetitions per day isn’t that hard and should get easier and better over time.
Now if only the weather was a bit nicer! Going for a walk at the moment might get me exercise, but I suspect I’d end up damp, miserable and worse off!

Quite cool. I settled for the swimming pool myself to improve my back as well. Gone 14 times this month and swam about 9h for 11km 🙂
I really need to signup for the swimming pool!
