A GREAT STARTING POINT OR ADDITION TO ANY GYM
This is in contrast to exercising on gym-type machines where main targeted muscles are isolated and are the only ones being utilized.
Dumbbell exercises allow complicit muscles to grow in strength together and prevent muscle groups from developing independently and out of sync.

Practical Advantages of Dumbbells
Let’s start by looking at the practical advantages. One significant benefit of training with dumbbells is their relative low cost and adaptability in comparison with other modes of training. Most exercise machines are expensive and typically can be used to perform only one exercise.
Dumbbells, on the other hand, provide a huge range of exercises. And nearly every barbell exercise you can think of can also be performed with dumbbells. But that is not the end of the list. Add all the exercise variations that are possible with dumbbells that are not possible with barbells (e.g., single-arm and alternating-arm exercises) and you quickly see that the number of potential dumbbell exercises is quite large.
Another benefit of dumbbell training over machine training is that most machines do not lend themselves well to explosive training. Dumbbells are well suited to explosive training, which is the focus of most of the dumbbell exercises athletes performs.
While barbells and weight plates are less expensive than exercise machines, they cost more than dumbbells. Further, many exercises performed with barbells require specialized equipment, such as a bench press or squat rack or, in the case of the Olympic lifts, an Olympic lifting bar, bumpers, and a platform that creates a safe area on which to perform the exercises. In contrast, most dumbbell exercises require only an open space for training, a rubber mat or piece of plywood to protect the floor, and an adjustable exercise bench.
Another practical benefit of dumbbell training is that little space is required, both for storing the dumbbells and for exercising with them. Compare this to machine training, where multiple machines are required to train the entire body, and barbell training, where training occurs with an 8-foot-long (2.4 m) barbell and a recommended 2-foot (61 cm) cushion of space on either end of the barbell. Because of their small size, dumbbells require very little space during training. While you do want a safe buffer around an athlete training with dumbbells, it is possible to train more athletes in a smaller area than could train on either machines or with barbells. Because of the small space requirement during dumbbell training, several athletes can train simultaneously and efficiently with minimal risk of injury. For example, it is possible to have 20 to 25 athletes training with dumbbells in a relatively small area (i.e., 500 square feet) during a training session (broken into groups of two, with one athlete lifting and a partner spotting while waiting to perform a set).
