    What's the purpose of those 1-pound dumbbells?

    Today at lunch, I decided that I was going to get one of those foam-covered 1-pound dumbbells to use as a paperweight. Nobody had them; they all started at 2 pounds. I've seen the 1-pounders around, so I'll pick one up over the weekend.

    This made me think, though. What exactly is the use of the little one and two pounders? Other than a 95-year old lady in a nursing home, who could use these tiny little things? All of the stores sell them, like Wal-Mart and Sears.

    Does anyone actually use the tiny ones for fitness purposes?

    i use 2 or 3 lb dumbbells when i shadow box...they can also be used for shoulder exercises when you would do about 20 different sets of 10 reps with no rest between sets, so your shoulders never drop ( i use this exercise for boxing as well )

    and post in proper section

    Hi Ex-Terminator,

    Someone has already said some women use 1 lb dumbbells while walking. My Mother in Law uses them. She is 73 years young. She walks around 4 miles a day. She is one tough woman.

    I used 1lb weights after shoulder reconstruction. My arm was in a special sling that held my arm against my waist at the elbow and wrist. It was in that position for 8 weeks. I could not even move my arm once the sling was removed. It took a lot of therapy to recover from the surgery. The day I was able to lift a one pound dumbbell I cried. I have made a very good recovery and now do dumbbell curls with around 50 pounds.

    I made a special stand for my one and two pound dumbbells and put it on top of my dumbbell rack. I look at them every time I train and thank God for how far I have come.

    I hope this helped to answer your question in part.

    Take care,
    B. Steel

    Thanks for the info, and I'm glad to hear that you and your Mother in Law are doing well. I can totally see the purpose in them, but I guess what surprises me is that they're so common. That is, they're sold in Wal-Mart, KMart, Target, Sears, etc... I knew they would have a purpose in physical therapy and training for the elderly and the like, but that would usually seem to be a very specialty item.

    I want a one-pounder as a paperweight.

    Oh, and reps.

    High reps low weight makes you toned, remember? I work with the five pound dumbells for about 60 reps at the gym everyday, but my genetics don't seem to be too good for biceps.
