The Fit Tea with Stephen Oglesby

Dumbbell Training

Vs

Stand Alone Machines

Welcome back my fit tea fans. I get asked this question a lot. What is the difference between dumbbell training vs. Standalone machines. The number 1 difference is the variations dumbbells allow vs the machines. Based on my 30 years of experience in the fitness industry, Dumbbells has always been my go-to piece of equipment for versatility and effectiveness. Do not get me wrong the strength machines are effective especially for the novice lifter because
most of them have instructions but, also have many limitations. What is the one thing that 90% of the machines have? Well, if I must tell you it is a seat. Meaning, that you are a prisoner to the biomechanics of the machine. And
trust me when I say this all machines are not created equally. So, if the machines biomechanics are not on point. The machine is useless. Which comes to this point. The ones who do not know how to use DB’s properly or just simply have never been taught how to use are at a disadvantage when it comes too variety.

Another key point is that a lot of the standalone machines are too big and too bulky especially for a lot of petite women. So, you can see how dumbbells can be much more effective and more versatile if you know what you are doing. Another key point is the core training you get with dumbbells. They also involve more stabilizing and balancing muscles. I know of at least 50
different effective exercises you can get with just a pair of dumbbells. So, if are looking for increased strength, power, and agility and range of motion. Dumbbell training should be included in your arsenal and not to mention they great for body shaping. I am so looking forward to when Powerhouse Gym is back in motion. I will be offering a free one on training session with who ever wants to see performance improvement. I will also be offering a 12 week 2 for 1 special on personal training also. I will more details on
that program by the end of the. Stay Strong, Stay Powerful, but most importantly, Stay Motivated.
