Whether you want to lose or maintain weight or build muscles, diet is crucial for achieving fitness goals. A good diet must include all nutrients, such as proteins, carbs, and fats.
Protein intake increases muscle mass, recover muscle damage, and improve exercise performance. Pasiakos SM, McLellan TM, Lieberman HR. The effects of protein supplements on muscle mass, strength, and aerobic and anaerobic power in healthy adults: a systematic review. Sports Med. 2015 Jan;45(1):111-31. doi: 10.1007/s40279-014-0242-2.

However, if you don’t have heavy dumbbells, you can increase the number of repetitions and reduce the interval time.
Rest days are crucial for any workout program. They’ll help you recover muscle soreness, repair and build up the muscle tissue, minimize the risk of injuries, and help you perform better during the workout.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much weight (Dumbbell) should I use?
It depends on you. You can lift as heavy dumbbells as possible as long as you maintain proper form and complete the suggested number of sets and reps.
Can I use this women’s dumbbell workout plan for weight loss?
You can use it. However, it won’t be as effective as the HIIT exercises. Performing exercises at a higher intensity with short intervals burn more calories and supports weight loss. You can download the dumbbell HIIT plan if you want to lose weight through dumbbell workouts.
When is the best time to work out?
You can exercise at any time of the day that suits you the most. However, you should avoid working out on an empty stomach. Doing weight training requires more energy, and without much energy, it will be challenging to work out efficiently.
