Has the lack of consistency been stopping you from getting results from your workouts? The truth is your choice of workouts may be the real problem.
You may be doing workouts that don’t engage different muscle groups at the same time. Or your workouts may be too long and boring.
Once you start doing the right workouts that offer rapid results, consistency won’t be an issue anymore. You’ll want to work out.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to do a workout that tones muscles in just 8 minutes? And you don’t have to go to the gym or build a home gym. You just need a pair of dumbbells and a little space.
If you do this workout at least 3 times, you’ll notice your arms become firmer and slimmer. Your belly will also feel tighter and feet will become stronger.
8-Minute Standing Dumbbell Workout
This extraordinary exercise tones your shoulders and arms. Tighten your abdominal muscles as you punch and keep your arms parallel to the floor.
Punch until the arm is almost straight. If your dumbbells are light, increase the intensity of the exercise by punching fast.
Dumbbell Curls to Shoulder Press
Dumbbell curls are an isolation exercise that only targets your biceps. Therefore, you should combine it with other exercises to get better results.
For this variation, you’ll end up toning your triceps, shoulders, and trapezius. Perform the exercises slowly and squeeze the muscles on each rep.
Dumbbell Single Leg Deadlift
This unique exercise is amazing because it loosens and strengthens your hamstrings. It also activates your glutes and lower back. Lastly, it improves your balance.
Keep your back straight as you bend forward and slightly bend the knee of the supporting leg.
Squat to Shoulder Press
You’ll love this exercise because it works your upper and lower body. Simply squat until your thighs are parallel to the floor (or lower) and then press the dumbbells over your head as you rise.
Maintain proper form while squatting by keeping your back straight and making sure your knees don’t extend past the toes. Heavier dumbbells will make the exercise more rewarding.
Upright rows engage your forearms, shoulders, and biceps. Pull the dumbbells close to your chin and then slowly lower them until your arms are straight.
Dumbbell Side Bends
When was the last time you trained your oblique muscles? If you’re like most people, you ignore these vital muscles. Your oblique muscles strengthen your core and tighten your midsection.
Simply tighten your oblique muscles and then bend to the right. Return to starting position and bend to the left then keep alternating. Heavier dumbbells will engage your obliques more.
Dumbbell Front Arm Raises
This exercise is excellent for strengthening your arms. It mainly targets the shoulders. Keep your abs tight while doing the front arm raises.
Dumbbell Walking Lunge to Back Pedal
This full body exercise is extremely rewarding even when you don’t use dumbbells. It targets your hamstrings, quads, glutes, and core.
Keep your torso upright while doing the walking lunges. And stay on your toes as you back pedal.
Have you given up on your calf muscles? Well, doing calf raises with dumbbells can actually build these stubborn muscles.
Lift your heels as high as possible on each rep and then slowly lower them. Hold heavier dumbbells to challenge your calf muscles more.
You can lose up to 15 pounds in just 4 weeks doing workouts like this one. However, the workouts have to be in a sequential order.
That’s why I’ve created this fat-burning sequence. It shows you the best workouts to do each day to tone muscle and melt stubborn belly fat. And the best part is the workouts are delivered in your inbox, which keeps you accountable and prevents inconsistency.
