Here Are “The Best Home Dumbbell Workouts” You Can Definitely Perform

Honestly speaking, You don’t need a ton of weight to make a living room workout worthwhile. All you need is a pair of dumbbells and some bands and you’re completely ready to go. Check this amazing article out. 

Sometimes, there’s just no way for you to make it to the gym—but that shouldn’t mean that you should skip out on getting a good workout in at home. That’s a simple fact that has become abundantly clear to even the most unimaginative exerciser during the coronavirus pandemic when most fitness facilities across the country closed their doors.

If you’re lucky (or you’re an iron-pumping international superstar), you might have a garage full of racks, weights, and machines to keep your fitness routine strong at home. But not everyone has the square footage or the cash for their own personal sweat space, so you might have to get creative.

If you don’t feel like running on the roads around your neighborhood and you’re sick of pushups and bodyweight squats, invest in a set of dumbbells (if and when they’re available, that is). An adjustable pair like any of these options can be incredibly versatile and take up about as much space as a small box in a corner.

Check out these workouts that use dumbbells—and household items you can grip just like dumbbells, like water jugs, backpacks, and more—can help you to get in better shape.

Iso-to-Reps Biceps Mayhem

This routine shows how versatile dumbbells can be, even when they’re outside of the classic gym environment. Men’s Health fitness director Ebenezer Samuel, C.S.C.S. uses isometric holds to build up the time under tension—a go-to technique for building muscle—then pumps up your arms even more by packing in extra reps with a drop set scheme.

Home Arm Pump Workout

Another routine from Samuel, this workout uses a couch and dumbbells (or a load you have handy) to blow up your arms. Give the full routine a try and you’ll be flexing in no time.

Warmup

Child’s Pose w/ Thoracic Rotation – 1 set each side, 30 seconds on, 30 off

Bear Crawl Y-T-Is – 1 set per side, 30 seconds per side

Superset 1 – 4 sets

Halfway Pause Elevated Bodyweight Skullcrusher – 30 seconds

Half-Full Hammer Curl – 30 seconds

Rest 15 seconds (or a full 45 seconds if you don’t have load)

Superset 3 – 2 sets

Double-Explode Close-Grip Pushups – 30 seconds

Mixed-Style ISO-to-Reps Curl – 5-second biceps curl halfway hold, then 5 biceps curls, then 5-second hammer curl halfway hold, then 5 hammer reps

10-Pound Dumbbell Workouts

There is one drawback to the workouts above, though: Adjustable dumbbell sets aren’t cheap, and they can be hard to find. Likewise, you might not have any gear on hand that you can grip like a dumbbell that weighs any more than 10 or 15 pounds. That’s just fine. There’s no weight requirement for a good dumbbell routine, so a quality pair of 10-pounders can handle the task—if you’re up to put the work in, that is.

Check out this video to see just how many moves you can do with nothing but a pair of 10s (or again, water bottles, cans, etc.), some open space, and creativity.
