Full Body Workout: Only Dumbbells Required!

Here's a full-body workout that will get the blood pumping in minimal time!

Only equipment needed is a single set of dumbbells! I used a set of 10lbs, but use what ever you have and what you can use comfortably. 

Here are 4 moves, complete each one 10 times, rest, and repeat 2-3 more times.

1) Plank to Dead-lift:

Start in a full plank position with one dumbbell in each hand.

Hop both feet up towards hands and pop hips out, dead-lifting the weights to hip height:

2) Full Sit-up with Triceps Extension:

Start completely down, with feet flat on the ground. 

Go into a full sit up and add a triceps extension with both arms behind your head:

3) Weighted Squats:

With feet about hip width apart, hips go back, be sure knees do not exceed the toes.

Keep weights at your side, then push body weight through heels while ascending.

4) 1 Arm Dumbbell Swing:

Using just 1 dumbbell, swing arm back between legs, popping hips out, swing arm up over head:

Mid air, switch arms and alternate swings.

10x each, rest, repeat 2-3 times!
