Effective dumbbell exercises
Triceps with dumbbells. Let's take a dumbbell with both hands and put it behind our head. This exercise is done standing, and with the legs slightly open. We stretch our arms, always behind the head, and start to go up and down slowly. You can do it with one arm first and then with another, or with both at the same time.
The biceps with dumbbells. Also standing, we take a dumbbell in each hand and raise until we flex the elbow. It can be done with both arms at the same time or separately. The strength has to come from the biceps and not the trunk to properly exercise the area.
Opening on bench with dumbbells. Lying on a bench, with our feet on the floor or on the bench, we took the dumbbells with the palms of our hands looking at each other. The objective is to raise the dumbbells stretching the arms to the maximum, and when we go down we will open them until they reach the height of the shoulders.
