innovative ways to act as a prop for several kinds of exercise. Apart

toning, but also help in stabilizing your joints.
To start with, rest your arms on the sides of body with the wrists
neutral and facing each other. Gradually bring one dumbbell up to your
shoulder and start rotating your wrist inward. Get back to original
posture and repeat with alternate hand.
Even for the chest exercise, the dumbbell can be used as a prop. Lie on
your back at a flat bench while placing your head on the edge of the
bench. Now hold the dumbbell and extend your arms above your chest.
Begin with single hand and gradually switch to using both the hands. Do
not tremble your wrists or lock your elbow while doing this exercise.
While using the dumbbell for your back exercises, stand with your feet
wide apart and with a bend at the knees. Now bend your wrists without
looking downwards. Gradually grasp and lift a pair of dumbbell with an
overhand grip to touch your upper abdominals. Reverse the movement and
then keep on going till you feel tired.
For shoulder exercise, simply lean forward at the waist and place your
one hand on a bench for support. Now hold a dumbbell in your free hand
with parallel arms extended and raise it above the floor up to your
shoulder level. Do it with alternate hands one by one.
