About our Toning Weights
Fantastic decision! Toning weights are in essence light dumbbells or kettlebells, the beauty is they’re cheap, effective and whether you want to firm up your thighs or blast off bingo wings they can do it.
Toning weights are generally designed with a nicer material to the chrome, rough handles of heavier dumbbells. Soft vinyl, rubber and neoprene all give you a comfortable grip to prevent any pesky callouses developing.
Theirs a common misconception that using dumbbells will build huge amounts of muscle, but this simply isn’t true. These lighter weights will not only help you tone, they’ll burn fat more effectively than regular cardio as your body keeps burning through it long after your workout has finished.
If you’re in recovery from an injury they’re also brilliant at gradually helping you develop your strength without over exerting. For example, if you’ve torn the rotator cuff in your shoulder some lateral raises with light dumbbells will bring it along, this method can be applied to other injuries but is dependent on its nature.
