Exercise at home Weightlifting

You don’t need to spend hours in the gym to build functional muscle … – Fit and Well

You don’t need to live in the gym to build strength and muscle. This workout can be done at home with just a couple of dumbbells, hitting every major upper-body muscle group in 12 minutes. 

We like lifting with a set of the best adjustable dumbbells (opens in new tab) as they allow us to adjust the weight for each exercise to suit our strength level.

Even as I dread the day I’ll finally eclipse the age of 30, I am already well on my way to being a crotchety, craggy faced old cretin. I have dealt with random bouts of back pain from sleeping on many brick-like mattresses. I have tried some massage therapy to deal with these issues, but in all these years of spine-twitching pain, your average …….
