These are going to be great exercises, especially for you men over 40. These are going to be a big bang for your buck exercises. Using dumbbells are safer than using a barbell, especially for older guys and people with joint issues. These are great exercises that work all parts of your body. Let’s get started with these top 8 dumbbell exercises for men over 40.
Exercise #1: HEELS ELEVATED DUMBBELL SQUAT. When you elevate your heels on a small one or 2 inch platform, it will make the exercise a lot easier on your knees and ankles. Anytime you are working your legs, initiate the movement by hinging at the hips. With the heels elevated, it also places more emphasis on your quads.
Exercise #2: INCLINE DUMBBELL BENCH PRESS. Use a neutral grip and an incline angle, bring the weights out wide when you hit the stretch. I recommend using dumbbells over barbells when doing a bench press.
Exercise #3: DUMBBELL DEADLIFT. Make sure you are not doing a squat in this exercise. Keep your hips high, hinge at the hips, and keep the dumbbells riding down your legs. This will focus more on your glutes and lower back.
Exercise #4: UNILATERAL DUMBBELL BACK ROW. When you are working your back, make sure to drive the dumbbells up with the elbow.
Exercise #5: UNILATERAL DUMBBELL SHOULDER PRESS. Utilize a neutral grip to put less stress on your shoulder joints and elbows.
Exercise #6: ALTERNATION 90 DEGREE BICEP CURLS. The opposite arm stays at 90 degrees after the full curl. This will allow there to be more time under tension, and will help you get a really good pump.
Exercise #7: DUMBBELL KICKBACKS. Flexing your biceps, will help you get a good stretch in your triceps.
Exercise #8: DUMBBELL SUITCASE CARRY. Maintain straight shoulders, make sure not to dip.
