full body workout

#1 Postby shana » Tue May 26, 2009 6:39 pm

Hi, I was wondering if you could please help me design a full body work out using just a pair of dumbbells. My problem areas are my butt and thighs so I would like to incorporate squats and lunges. Thanks

Krista Smash has a few routines that just use DB's. I've never used them myself but they may be worth looking at:

seriously check out "The Squeeze Workouts" by Tracy Effinger. You can you find those at collagevideo.com.

You only need a chair, light weights (1-3 lbs) and a broom stick and it will totally change your body. I have gotten absolutely incredible results with virtually no weights and they are very intense and challenging-not for beginners.

Do check them out!

Body workout using eight challenging exercises with no rest in between. This would be a consider a circuit workout since there are no breaks in between and each exercise is done one after another until the entire group is completed. The exercises are as followed: back squat, pull-up, walking lunge, push-up, one-legged squat, dumbbell squat to shoulder press, hanging knee raises, and crunches.

I am a huge fan of turkish get ups with a dumbbell. They work my whole body
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you
