https://fitatmidlife.com/best-dumbbells-for-your-home-gym/

Let’s look at the best dumbbell choices for your home gym or garage gym.

Dumbbells are a staple of every gym and fitness center worldwide.

Because they work.

These affordable and versatile fitness tools have been used in strength training since the beginning of time.

But, before you splurge on purchasing a full set of dumbbells for your home gym, take a few moments to figure out what the best option will be for you.

We’ll present a variety of options here to meet any budget

Why Dumbbells For Your Home Gym?
Dumbbells are a great general purpose strength training and fitness tool.

You can use them standing or seated.

They are relatively light-weight – so ideal of a beginner.

They are relatively compact (except when you have lots of them!)

They allow you to train uni-laterally – meaning you can ensure your weak arm or limb is doing its fair share of the work. Dumbbells are great for improving symmetry or strength imbalances.

And they are a ubiquitous piece of gym equipment – buy them anywhere – including your local big box stores.

What sort of exercise can you do with dumbbells?

Bench press, overhead press, biceps curls, goblet squats, dumbbell rows (as shown here), there are endless options.

Study Predicts Minimal Life Expectancy Improvements for US

A new study published in the medical journal The Lancet shows that US life expectancies will improve minimally between now and the year 2040.[1]

The average life expectancy of a citizen of the US was 78.7 years in the year 2016.

In the year 2040, the average life span is expected to be only 79.8 years, for a meager 1.1 year increase.

This improvement is especially small compared to other Western nations.

In contrast, life expectancy improvements globally will average a gain of 4.4 years in the same time frame.

The Importance of Aerobic Fitness

A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that people with the highest levels of aerobic fitness have the least chance of death.

The study shows that lacking aerobic fitness is greater than or equal to traditional health risk factors such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and smoking.

In the study over 120,000 participants were tested for cardiorespiratory (aerobic) fitness on a treadmill. This is a significant improvement over other studies that have used self-reported exercise activity.

The bottom line that the participants who performed highest on the treadmill test, tended to have the least chance of death

The GORUCK GR1 Backpack for Business Travel

The GORUCK GR1 backpack is not just for “rucking” – it’s a great bag for laptops and business travel.

GORUCK is a company that makes several products targeted to “rucking” – which is walking or hiking for distance with a loaded backpack.

The GORUCK GR1 backpack is their main product. It’s a tough, versatile, and good looking backpack that is considered a premium product.

Rucking is the foundation of Special Forces (SF) physical training, so you’d expect this backpack to be too “tactical” for Every Day Carry (EDC), but that’s actually not the case.

One of the things I like about my GORUCK GR1 backpack is just how versatile it is – and it fits into nearly any setting – whether on the ruck march, in the field, or in the meeting room – or any other business setting.

Let’s talk here today about using the GORUCK GR1 for business travel.

Functional Trainer (Cable Machine) Reviews (BEST EQUIPMENT 2018)

https://fitatmidlife.com/functional-trainer-cable-machine-reviews/

Let’s talk about functional trainers, also called cable machines.

What’s a functional trainer? It’s a cable machine that uses two independent weight stacks, pulleys, and cables (with handles) to provide unique workout benefits.

The pulleys and cable handles are height adjustable – and this lets you work from any angle.

The weight stack is normally selectorized, such that you can choose the desired weight quickly and easily by inserting a pin underneath the weight load.

Is the cable machine superior to free weights such as the barbell, dumbbell, and kettlebell?
