For some variety add these to your routine
Dumbbell exercises are great for intermediate or advanced workouts as they not only have a fluid movement (compared to machines) but they are great for variety into any workout plan. Dumbbell exercises are focused on gravity and should be combined with cables, bodyweight and machines for a varied workout routine. You can also purchase magnets that go on the sides of dumbbells to help increase the weight by 2.5 pounds instead of jumping up by 5 pounds. This 'progressive overload principle' will help you lift a heavier weight.
