Lifting weights involving all muscle groups at least two times a week will result in improved endurance, increased strength and an overall toned look. But reaping the health benefits of weight lifting doesn’t require loading plates onto a bar or grabbing the heaviest kettlebell in sight.
In general, lifting lighter weights poses a lower risk of injury than training with heavier weights, making Soft Dumbbells, Mini Handweights and Toning Balls a great option to add into a mindful movement practice or group fitness class. These accessories allow you to complete more repetitions and improve muscular endurance, plus they’re a great addition to any Pilates, yoga or barre fitness class for programming variety.
Especially accommodating to the active aging category, these accessories are a viable option for those who want to reduce the loss of lean muscle mass as a result of aging while maintaining a low risk of injury. Ranging from 2 pounds to 5.5 pounds, our selection of weights are versatile, portable and easily incorporated into a variety of sculpting exercises that won’t build bulk.
