I was recently asked, “Brit, what’s the 1 fitness product that you can’t live without?” Without any hesitation, I quickly answered “my neon headbands!” However, in a very close 2nd place are my dumbbells. In all seriousness, with 2 medium/heavy dumbbells you can create fitness magic! That said, I’ve demonstrated 12 of my all time favorite dumbbell exercise for you.
If you want to create your own workout, simply pick 3 exercises that you like. Do 12 reps of each exercise. At the end of the circuit, run in place or do jumping jacks for 1 minute. Repeat the circuit 3 times. For example, your custom dumbbell workout could be…
- 12 sumo squats
- 12 dead lifts
- 12 bicep curls
- 1 minute of jumping jacks
REPEAT 3 TIMES!
See how easy that is to plan? Plus, the combination of dumbbell resistance exercises and cardio intervals gives you a total body workout while burning lots of calories – a good look 😉
