There’s something intensely satisfying about lifting with barbells. After all, there’s nothing like loading up a bunch of steel and conquering a new personal best in the deadlift. But when push comes to press, dumbbell training offer a lot more versatility. As far as equipment goes having a dumbbell lying around doesn’t take up much space, there easily accessible and can be found in the dinkiest of hotel fitness center or a family members garage.
Many people who want to change their bodies believe that they need access to a fancy gym thats stocked with expensive gym equipment to get the job done. They hem and haw about paying the gym membership fees and consider paying for a personal trainer. Which is all well and good except more often than not they pay and just don’t go. So skip the gym membership and invest in yourself rather than a personal trainer.
Using just a pair of dumbbells and this dumbbell-only routine you’ll be able to hit all the major muscle groups in your body, and build a stronger body in only 30 minutes a day.
Dumbbell training allows you to workout one side of your body at a time, which is great for curing any strength imbalances you’ve developed. And because each limb moves independently, your core has to brace harder to prevent you from tipping to one side. So with this in mind dumbbell workouts are great for stabilizing the core and building abs.
Frequency: Do this workout three times per week, in the following sequence, resting at least a day between each session.
How to do it: Perform as straight sets, completing all the prescribed sets for one exercise before moving on to the next. On all one-handed (or one-legged) moves, repeat with opposite limb. That’s one set.
