Power coach Jeff Cavaliere C.S.C.S. repeatedly shares sensible recommendation on how one can construct muscle on the Athlean-X channel, however in a brand new video he acknowledges that not everybody has entry to a completely outfitted health club, and presents a easy, total-body exercise that may be carried out utilizing nothing however a set of dumbbells. He offers single dumbbell variations for anybody who solely has the one weight, or for whom the two-dumbbell model is just too heavy.
The primary single dumbbell train is the clear up and over, an explosive transfer that works the shoulders, again, brachialis and legs. Clear the load as much as your shoulder, press it overhead, decrease it to the opposite shoulder after which all the way down to the ground, and repeat. In case you’re working with two dumbbells, Cavaliere suggests the clear and press.

Holding the dumbbell as you’d throughout a goblet squat, do a reverse lunge on both facet, then end with a squat. “Preserve a barely wider stance,” he advises. “Principally, begin out of your goblet squat stance, since you desire a wider base of assist while you return into your reverse lunge.” When you have two dumbbells, do the identical whereas holding them at both facet.
The third train recreates the motion of the T-bar row with a dumbell in a crush grip. The 2 dumbbell model, the useless row, provides some further engagement from the legs within the first portion of the transfer.
The fourth transfer is a pushing train which hits the chest, shoulders and triceps: the crush grip flooring press. Whereas squeezing the deal with of the dumbbell with each palms with as a lot inward drive as you’ll be able to, press the load whereas mendacity in a horizontal place. When you have two dumbbells, carry out a conventional flooring press.
Every train ought to be carried out for 3 units of 6 to eight reps. “In case your dumbbell is just too gentle, I counsel you to easy do the set till you attain failure,” says Cavaliere, “and dramatically lower your relaxation time to extend the metabolic impact of the train as a substitute.”
