This is perfect for beginners opting for more aerobic workouts, helping you to lose weight instead of focusing on muscle gain.

One study, published by researchers in the Journal of Taibah University Medical Sciences, found adults who did six weeks of dumbbell exercises had a "significant" reduction in their BMI, weight-to-hip ratio and body fat percentage.
