Dumbbells might be the perfect workout for your back, but they might be better for your spine.
In fact, it’s not hard to see why, according to a study published Monday in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research.
In the study, researchers used a variety of exercises to assess the effects of different weight training protocols on the musculoskeletal system, and found that they all worked for the muscles of the back.
But the dumbbell work did the most for the neck.
Researchers used a wide variety of dumbbell exercises to measure the effects on musculo-skeletal structure, including the back and neck.
The results suggest that dumbbell training could potentially improve both the quality of life and health of your back.
The study was conducted by researchers at The University of Alabama at Birmingham and published in the journal J Strength Cond Res.
“The results are surprising and very exciting because it’s a study that looked at the effects that different types of dumbbills had on musculus structure and function,” Dr. Thomas J. Schmitt, a professor in the department of kinesiology and exercise physiology at The UAB, said in a statement.
The researchers looked at several different types and combinations of dumbbelts to determine which ones produced the most benefits.
The exercise protocol involved four to six sets of dumb-bell exercises performed for 30 seconds each, with a rest period of three minutes.
Then the participants performed a variety the exercises over a period of eight weeks.
“We found that dumb-barbell exercise training was superior to dumbbell exercise, and dumbbell isolation exercises were superior to isolation exercises,” Dr., Schmitt said.
“Our findings suggest that isolation exercises can improve the health of the spine and improve flexibility in the spine.”
It’s not known if dumbbell movements are as effective for improving health as other types of exercises, but studies show they can improve muscle strength, improve flexibility and improve coordination.
Dr. Schlosst said it’s also possible that dumb bells are effective in preventing injuries, because they work to strengthen the muscles that hold the joints in place.
“If they are just making you more durable, they’re not going to do a whole lot of good,” he said.
