• Non-adjustable weights. Weight-adjustable dumbbell sets are convenient, but they require a lot of fine motor movement, which can be difficult for those with finger, hand or wrist arthritis. Safety tip: Skip weights that don’t have a handle or can’t be attached around the wrists or ankles. They can make it especially difficult to maintain proper form while using them, which increases the risk of injury.
