Dumbbell Hooks Frankfort KY

Think of dumbbell hooks as your training partner your mammoth training partner one that would be able to hand you a 100-pound dumbbell with ease when you're flat down on a bench and ready to press. Many people who resistance train often complain that they could perform more reps if only they didn't have to keep making trips back and forth to the rack to get heavy weights, or worse, having to heave them up off the floor before each set.

If you're a power lifter who's never heard of dumbbell hooks, then in my opinion you're likely spending just as much energy balancing barbells as you are performing lifts.

Many people who resistance train often complain that they could perform more reps if only they didn't have to keep making trips back and forth to the rack to get heavy weights, or worse, having to heave them up off the floor before each set.

Dumbbell hooks allow you to hang your dumbbells on an overhead bar, putting you in a safe and proper lifting position from go.
