Full-Body Dumbbell Workout Circuit


This workout is PERFECT for a quick at-home workout or when space at the gym is limited. Grab a pair of dumbbells and you are set to go!

Repeat this following six exercises in the order listed below for five total rounds for a complete full body workout!

1. Glute Bridge to Skull Crusher: 15 reps
Begin in a glute bridge position with your arms straight up in front of your face. Drive through your heels and squeeze your glutes to hold! From here, lower the dumbbells about an inch away from your forehead, then press them back to the starting position. Keep your elbows in a straight line and avoid letting them wing out to the sides!

2. Curtsy to Half Lateral Raise: 20 reps (10 each side)
Begin by standing straight up and holding a pair of dumbbells at your sides at a 90 degree angle (hammer curl hold). From there, curtsy squat with the back leg while simultaneously raising the dumbbells up to a half lateral raise. Lower the arms back down to the hammer curl hold position as you stand and repeat on the other side.

3. Push-Up to Bird-Dog: 10 reps (5 each side)
Begin in a high plank position. From there, lower down into a push-up (lower to knees for a modification). As you come up from your push-up, extend your left arm and your right leg. Lower back to a high plank, repeat the push-up, and at the top extend your right arm and left leg (opposite side). Alternate sides each time you come up from your push-up.
