  1. Ah, I was searching for an article like this in your site. I tried searching for “How to choose dumbbell weight” but did not find any. I guess my search term is wrong 😀

    I think it would be nice if you can also put this as a link / reference on your “Home Workout Equipment” under dumbbell. Might be helpful to those who want to know how to pick the proper weight for dumbbells.
