Full Body Dumbbell Circuit

A quick dumbbell workout for women that will tone all of your target areas! This full body workout will strengthen your butt, abs, & arms in 30 minutes!

Today was a SNOWDAY for us here in the Big Apple!!! Well, for most of the northeast actually…and even though I was able to see a few clients at the gym this morning, I ended up coming home pretty early to bundle up and stay warm.

But, just because it was snowing doesn’t mean I didn’t get my workout in. Luckily, I am prepared and have a set of dumbbells for this very reason! So, I put together this little circuit and had to share it with you!

This is a great full body dumbbell workout for women that sculpts your booty, arms, and abs all in one.

Because all you need is dumbbells, it’s perfect for a quick workout at home. It’s also a good idea to print it off and bring to the gym. You know, for those days when it’s so packed that you can’t move around — this happens to me when training clients A LOT. And lastly, it’s great for anyone who travels a lot because almost ALL hotel gyms have some dumbbells.

The total workout should only take about 30 minutes, so make sure you KEEP IT MOVING! Circuits are suppose to be quick and efficient.

Place your LEFT hand on your front thigh, then hold your LIGHTER weight in your RIGHT hand. Lift the RIGHT elbow so that you upper arm is parallel to the floor. Then, only moving from the elbow to the weight, use the back of your RIGHT arm to straighten your arm and lift the weight back. Bend at the elbow to complete one repetition. Repeat, keeping the elbow lifted, for 15 repetitions.
