Full-Body Dumbbell Workout

Some of my favorite workouts are created by accident.   This workout is a result of one of those recent workout sessions. I knew I wanted to do a strength training session with minimal equipment, and I needed it to be full-body. 

The only equipment this workout utilizes are dumbbells. If you don’t have any dumbbells, you can easily do this workout with bottles of water or no weights at all. Repeat each circuit for a total of three times before moving on to the next circuit.

As with all strength training workouts, go slow. Focus on what movements you are doing. Allow your body to go through the entire range of motion without rushing through it. The slower pace will also allow you to get a better workout and help you avoid injury.

Circuit #1:

Static Lunge + Shoulder Press (6 reps per leg for a total of 12)

Single-Leg Bridge (12 per leg)

Curtsy Lunge with Front Raise (10 per leg)

Circuit #2:

12 T Rotation Push-ups

12 Supermen

30-Second Plank with Step Outs

Circuit #3:

30-Second Mountain Climbers or modified Mountain Climbers

12 Tricep Dips on the ground

30-Second Side Plank with Reverse Fly (per side)
