Hello,
 
I have 2 x 7.5 kg dumbbells and would like to know what would be the best daily exercises to loose weight / belly fat.
Thanks for your help,
 
Best regards,

    Apologies for being blunt, but 7.5kg dumbbells will do nothing.
     
    Anyway, if you're just looking to lose weight then diet and cardio is what you need to look at.

    What would be the weights needed for the dumbbells?

    Well, how long is a piece of string? It completely depends on the person and how strong they are. Different movements will allow you to use more weight than others, depending on how many muscles are used and range of motion, etc. But the point is with any weight training movement you need to be lifting a weight which you can only handle for a certain amount of (relatively low) reps before your muscles fail (say, for example, 3 sets of 8 or 5 sets of 5), and there are simply very few movements with which 7.5kg would be anywhere near heavy enough to stimulate growth.
     
    Also, the primary driver behind gaining muscle is linear progression (ie. increasing the weights you are lifting week on week, month on month, year on year). Therefore, even if in the highly unlikely situation that 7.5kg was personally heavy enough for you to lift and still stimulate growth, it wouldn't remain that way for very long. Therefore, aiming to use one size of weights for resistance training is utterly pointless - you need a selection of weights so that you can increase them as you progress.
     
    It's very difficult to give you an idea of actual numbers, but considering you should be doing big compound movements such as squatting, benching, deadlifting and bent-over rows, and it's not unreasonable to estimate that an average beginner might bench anywhere from 30kg-50kg, squat 40kg-60kg, deadlift 60kg-80kg and row 30kg-50kg, then that might give you some idea of why getting 7.5kg dumbbells is completely pointless.
     
     
    But as said, if you want to lose fat, then do cardio and look at your diet. Dumbbells, as with any kind of weight training, are primarily for gaining muscle mass.

    If you want to lose weight, you have to diet and do cardio.  You can weight train too but diet is the majority of losing the belly fat.

    weightloss is matter of calories in vs calories out. you have to be burning more than you are consuming to lose weight. Cardio is the best way to do this.

    Even without cardio if you put yourself in a calorie deficit you will loose fat. But not just belly fat.
    Muscle is very metabolically active so aim to build muscle with a proper weight training regime that will incorporate the basic compound moves. So maybe join a gym and give those dumbbells to your sister lol
    (Train your legs hard ).
    Get you carbs low, moderate good fats and adequate protein.

    Guess we all start somewhere and I remember all those years ago at 15 purchasing my first pair of 5kg gold vinyl York dumbbells from Argos together with a Bullworker. To compliment my training I would do press-ups and sit-ups.
    As the guys say mate, you're not gonna lose any weight at all using a set of beginner's dumbbells. Can you join a gym and perhaps get good advice from a PT to start you on your road to greatness?
    Good luck bud
