Upper Body Workout

Here is an upper body weight routine that you can do with dumbbells for a basic level of fitness. I found examples of these exercises at for you to see the proper form.

Each round consists of two different exercises. Do 10-15 reps of each exercise and alternate between the two exercises until you’ve done 3 sets of each.

Round 1

Shoulders- Dumbbell Shoulder Press

Lats- Chin-ups

Round 2

Chest- Dumbbell Bench Press

Back- One Arm Dumbbell Row

Round 3

Biceps- Alternating Dumbbell Curl

Triceps- Dumbbell One Arm Tricep Extensions

Round 4

Abs (Do 3 sets of 30)- Air Bike

Please use caution when doing these exercises and use a light weight until you learn the right technique. If you need help, have someone spot you.
