Can You Workout With Dumbbells Everyday?
Dumbbells are a versatile and easy way to work out at home or at the gym, and it may seem tempting to use them everyday, but you need to give your muscles a rest day to heal. Don’t work the same muscles too hard multiple days in a row.
If you are targeting different muscle groups each day, such as this well-planned dumbbell weekly workout plan below, then you can use your dumbbells everyday as part of some daily strength training.
What are the Best Dumbbells to Buy?
Dumbbells are an awesome piece of equipment to have in your home. Dumbbells are versatile and can give you a complete workout, not to mention they are affordable, effective at building and toning muscle, and easy to use anywhere especially if you have limited space and home equipment.
Dumbbells are a worthy investment. Here’s a great set of beginning dumbbells.
If you’re more intermediate or advanced, this is a great set to invest in.

How Heavy Of Dumbbells Should I Use?
The weight of your dumbbells depends on your experience and the type of exercise. Typically you should start with anywhere from 2 to 15 pounds, depending on the ease of the exercise. You’ll want a weight that is slightly challenging from the start, but not too heavy. You’ll want to be able to complete 10 to 15 reps of each exercise with the weight you choose.
When starting a new exercise it’s always a good idea to start light and focus on technique and proper form before adding weight. If you are consistent for a few weeks then you can gradually progress and increase the weight.
Now on to the workout. Each day focuses on different major muscles including biceps and triceps, back, chest, legs, shoulders, core, and total body. Click on the images below to be taken to the workout for the day. You totally got this!
