Why Strength training?

As one of the most effective ways to reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently, strength training is an important part of any fitness programme. Studies have shown the strength training can also help to increase the endurance of muscles, while also helping to increase bone density, reduce resting blood pressure and improve balance and co-ordination.

Fitbells are a popular part of many workout routines because they provide an easy way to add muscle-toning resistance, and are ideal for toning the upper body or light rehab work.

Weightlifting techniques

To get the most out of your workout it is essential that you are using the correct weight. As a guide, the last rep should be a struggle. You should still have control over the weight and your form should still be correct - don't arch your back, strain your neck, or rock your body to generate momentum as this can cause injury - but you should feel like you can't lift another rep.

Perfecting your breathing techniques when you're working out is also crucial, helping your body to deliver oxygen to your muscles more efficiently. For strength training, exhale on the exertion phase (the lifting, curling or pushing) of the exercise and inhale on the easier phase when you return to the starting position. Proper breathing can also help you to build endurance and ensure good form.

Fitbells can be used to target all areas of the body. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

Walking Lunge

Stand upright with feet together, holding two fitbells at your sides.

Lunge forward with your left leg, curling the fitbells to your shoulders and keeping your elbows close to the body. Your back knee should come close but never touch the ground. The front knee should be directly over the ankle.

Push off with your right foot and bring it forward to starting position, lowering the fitbells to your side. That's one rep.

Aim to do 3 sets of 12 - 15 reps on each leg, making sure to alternate legs.

Bicep Curl

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding two fitbells in front of your hips, palms facing up.

Bend your left arm 90 degrees so your left arm is parallel to the floor. Curl your right hand toward your shoulder. Then lower it back down to the start position while keeping your left arm in place.

This is one rep. Aim to do 3 sets of 12 - 15 reps on each side.

Front raise

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, hold two fitbells in front of your hips, palms facing in.

Slowly lift arms up to shoulder height, keeping elbows slightly bent. Hold for one count and lower.

This is one rep. Switch arms and repeat. Aim to do 3 sets of 12 - 15 reps.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good weights, did their job 4 Jan 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I got these for rehabilitation purposes because I have cerebral palsy. They come in a nice box for easy storage, unlike some other reviewers I had no problems with a lasting smell from the vinyl - the box smells when you first open it, but by the following day the smell had gone. I still use them for yoga, but they did their job quicker than expected, I no longer need them and am now looking to purchase some heavier weights.

    4 stars because unless you get them perfectly lined up in the box the lid doesn't shut properly.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very good weights recomended 6 Nov 2008
    I got the weights recently and really like them. I have found them to be sticky but you do not notice this when your using them and it helps the weights to stay in your hands. The Sizes are 2.5 Kg, 1.5 Kg and 1.0 Kg. They are easy to use and within days of using them I have found that my arm muscles are getting builded up which is what I wanted. I fully recommend these weights if you are a beginner or novice just like me.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good value weights set 5 Nov 2008
    By Maggie
    This is a good value set of weights at the lower end of the spectrum which is useful for toning and gentle muscle building. The weights are nice, bright colours and the texture is slightly sticky so you are not likely to drop them in use. The carry case is useful for storage and to avoid losing the individual weights. Much cheaper than buying them individually and having the range of 3 sizes means you are more likely to exercise sensibly. It also comes with a useful poster showing a range of exercises.

    Nice little set of light weights. You get 3 pairs of dumbbells (2.5 Kg, 1.5 Kg and 1.0 Kg) that are vinyl coated. They come with a carrying case for easy storage, and I guess you could take them with you on trips if you're so inclined.

    Consider getting them for toning up your arms or rehabilitating an arm injury. Also recommend Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff if you have shoulder problems or want to avoid one.

    5.0 out of 5 stars great 17 Jun 2012
    Verified Purchase
    I have never been a 'fitness freak' and have never owned a pair of weights until now.... Now i have 3 sets for the bargain price of 19.99.
    I have started to exercise at home using fitness DVDs and weights seem to be an essential part of this and so i opted for these. I have only used the 1kg weights and will gradually move on up, i guess and iv got em all in 1 box when i do.
    The box is also essential with inquisitive little toddlers around. The box is quite sturdy and also tough to open for little hands so no worries there.
    Quality wise, they seem well made, they don't smell unless you stick your nose right up to them and have a good sniff (who cares??) and i don't find them 'sticky' just grippy and thats not really a bad thing.

    Really happy with these.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect. 22 Dec 2011
    By Tamsin
    Verified Purchase
    Just what I was looking for, a set of dumbbells that came with a (cheap) case so I would a) have somewhere to keep them and b) if I ever needed to move them it would be easy enough to do. The grip on them is great (if a little sticky)and the weights themselves are an ideal size for my hands since I have rather small ones and with previous dumbbell experiences I have found the dumbbells to be too chunky and ended up holding them awkwardly.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Does Everything You Need It To 2 July 2013
    Verified Purchase
    I bought this set of weights for my girlfriend recently (she wanted it, I didn't force them upon her) and she really likes them. They come in accessible weights to start off working out with them. I have my own set of weights, and I was able to help her out, but the chart that comes with it provides some really good starting points for this. The case they're in seems tough and rigid, as do the weights themselves. I can't pick any negative points with these, so it's an easy 5 stars.
