Did you know the term “Dumbbell” didn’t originally refer to a handheld weight? Instead it referred to a real life “bell” like the ones that would ring day and night from a church or public building. People would install them in their homes for the exercise value of tugging on the rope! The only difference was that these bells didn’t ring. They were mute or “dumb”… hence the term “dumbbell”! It just goes to show that just when you think you know everything worth knowing about something, you may end up having to rethink what you thought you “knew for sure”! That’s not only true about the “name” of the dumbbell. It’s also true when it comes to thinking that those “dumbbells” you’re using down at the gym are the tool you need to blast blubber or get that “ripped” and muscular look you’re working out to achieve. …in fact, it’s quite likely those dumbbells you’re lifting may not be doing the work you need – and never can! Why’s that? Simple. To look “ripped” you must not only build muscle, you must burn calories! You must obliterate the layers of subcutaneous fat that will hide whatever muscle you do build like a “cloaking device”. Burning those calories takes sheer work. And the dumbbells you’re using and the way you’re using them aren’t capable of getting the work done that you need to do! It’s just math really. Let’s say you’re trying to build up some lean and mean arms and shoulders. Hey, who isn’t? So you do three sets of 10 curls with 20 lb. dumbbells. You rest a few minutes between each set and before moving to the next exercise… Overhead presses for three sets of 10 as well. Then you do three sets of 10 upright rows with the same dumbbells. How much work have you really done? By the time you’ve done the set and rested for one minute you’ve got about 2.5 to 3 minutes invested per set. By the time you’re done you’ve worked 25 to 30 minutes total and still haven’t worked the rest of your body. We still really haven’t gotten to how much work you’ve really done. When it comes to “work”, let’s figure that when you move your dumbbell from the resting position at your thighs to the overhead position you’ve moved the weights a total of 42 inches. (You’re doing the exercises separately but we’ll combine them when calculating the work output!) When you’re doing the upright rows, you’re moving the weight 25 inches total. Now we’ll calculate your total “work output” by multiplying the distance, by the weight, by the number of repetitions. OK? Curls and Presses totaled – 42 inches x 40 lbs. x 30 = 50,400 “units” Upright rows totaled – 25 inches x 40 lbs x 30 = 30,000 “units” The totals “units” of work output for the three combined exercises, then, are 80,400 units in 25-30 minutes. Respectable? Or not so much? What if you could learn how to….
