Exercise is all about creating a sense of balance.
So it makes sense that dumbbell hip tensers, also known as dumbbell knee thrusters, are a favorite among hip-hop artists.
The hip-tricks are designed to keep your knees stable while lifting the weight up, a common challenge when trying to stand up straight and with a stable base.
Hip-tension is also a common feature in the hip-strengthening exercises that have become popular in hip-dancing.
However, the benefits of dumbbell thigh thrusters are more apparent when they’re used to strengthen the quads, glutes, hamstrings, and calves.
Dumbbell thigh exercises can also be a great way to add muscle definition and to increase range of motion in the hamstrings and calves, among other things.
Dumbbell Leg Exercises Dumbbell leg movements are one of the easiest exercises to perform on the floor.
They’re especially good for building strength, mobility, and flexibility in the upper back and hips.
To do them, just stand with your legs straight, feet on the ground, hands behind your head, and your feet on a bench.
Keep your knees bent and your shoulders locked in place.
Then, start to slowly lower your hips down and back toward the floor, keeping your torso aligned.
As you lower, your body will slowly lift and straighten out.
Keep doing this for a few seconds, and the hips will gradually start to bend back.
Then you can repeat the process for a short while.
It’s important to be able to do these exercises safely and efficiently.
Don’t forget to add some resistance when you’re doing them.
For example, if you’re just starting out, try doing dumbbell calf raises.
You can also add a couple of sets of dumb.

Dumb, Dumb, and More Dumbbell Hip Thrusts Dumbbell hamstring movements are also good for increasing range of movement in the quiescent muscles in the glutes and hamstrings.
To perform a hip-thrust, simply place your hands on the side of your hips and lean your body forward.
Slowly lower your knees back down and you’ll begin to rotate your hips to your chest.
Keep the weight down until you’re back on your feet.
Keep lowering the weight until you feel your quads contracting and contracting again.
When you feel that you’ve reached a certain point, you’ll quickly start to rotate back up.
As soon as you do this, you’re ready to start hip-twisting again.
You may even want to try some of the dumbbell glute-ham raises.
Dumb Dumb and More Hip Thrust Variations The dumbbell quad-squat, dumbbell lateral-leg raise, and dumbbell overhead-leg curl are popular hip-dominant exercises.
For more hip-fiber strengthening, try the dumb and dumb dumbbell squat variations.
While dumbbell ham raises can help you build strength in your lower back and hip-hamstrings, they’re not as beneficial as they seem.
These exercises have the potential to cause injury, especially if you don’t add a bit of resistance to them.
Instead, add a little extra weight to the dumb-bell leg raises or dumb-belly-lift variations.
For an exercise to work, you need to be fully upright, and this can cause discomfort.
You’ll also want to be aware of the weight being placed on your hips.
As your body bends forward, you should brace your back and your hips, not your back or the dumb.
Dumb-bell knee curls are a great hip-muscle strengthening exercise that’s easy to do with dumbbells.
To add strength to the knee curls, place your feet in front of your chest and pull them back toward you, pushing them into your thighs.
As the knee muscles contract and extend, you can begin to twist your knees out of alignment.
Finally, you don´t want to pull your knee out too far because this can put you at risk for knee injuries.
As a hip muscle strengthening exercise, dumb-braced knee curls can also help strengthen the quadriceps and hamstring muscles.
Dumb Braced Ankle Exercitions The hip flexor muscles are the major muscles that support the lower body in the lower half of the body.
These muscles have three main modes of contraction.
One mode is a passive stretch.
The other two modes are actively contracted.
Active contraction is the contraction of the muscle as you move your hips forward.
Active contracted muscle contracts as you bend your knees in a certain direction.
This allows you to hold the weight with both your hands while still bending your knees.
Passive contracted muscle contract by contracting your hamstrings (lateral hamstrings) while bending your hips in a particular direction.
