At Home All Dumbbell Workout

At-home full body dumbbell workouts are everywhere, but many are structured for those who just want a quick “get-in-shape” program. I’ve always been a student of muscle. If I’m going to spend time training I want any routine I follow to build muscle, strength, and give me a great pump so I can walk away with a smile on my face and the sense that I really moved the needle.

Following is an all dumbbell workout that addresses everything: all body parts, compound movements, and practices efficiency of effort. That is, it doesn’t waste time and energy on useless exercises, gets straight to the point of training, and will yield the fastest and best results possible.

Basic But Effective Chest and Back Workout

Simple is in. Minimalism is the new buzz word floating around and I for one have always been a fan before it was trendy. Most problems have simple answers (not easy, but simple). Your training should be no different. This basic but effective chest and back workout possesses that principle.

It’s not hard to see the complex, frustrating, and confusing machine the fitness industry has turned into. The industry is filled with snake oil ready to take your money and manipulate you into buying the latest gadget or “system” that guarantees will finally be the secret you’ve been seeking. No gimmicks here.

Dumbbell-Only Better Arm Workout

When I was asked to make a muscle back in my competitive days I would invariably hitch my sleeve up and squeeze. Nowadays we want to be lean with six-pack abs. We no longer want huge guns, but leaner, more muscular bodies. However, arms are still a mainstay. With this dumbbell-only arm workout you can build better arms in short order. All you need is a pair of dumbbells, an adjustable bench, and around 20 minutes.

Arm training shouldn’t be complicated. Their function is pretty simple and to the point. We either contract or extend at the elbow. Now I know it’s a bit more involved than that, but I’ll spare you the anatomy lesson and get right to the point.
