dumbbellI’m a big fan exercise routines that only require only one piece of equipment, especially if that piece of equipment is the ubiquitous dumbbell. Let’s face it, everyone has a set of dumbbells lying around somewhere. And if you don’t, then you know someone who does and won’t mind if you borrow them.

Today I was sitting in front of the television and wanted to get a workout in while catching up on the news. So I did a Google search and came across this little gem of an article. It lists the top 10 dumbbell exercises and even gives a little GIF demo of each one.

Challenge accepted! I dusted off my power blocks, cleared off the ottoman in my living room (some of these exercises require a bench), and got to work. I did three rounds of 10-12 reps using just enough weight to make the last rep of each set difficult.

I did rearrange the order of the exercise so that I didn’t have to keep pulling my “bench” out (I have a very small living room). I also wanted to make sure I wasn’t having to switch back and forth between lighter and heavier dumbbell weights. So, here’s the order I did these in.

  1. Dumbbell Bench Press

  2. Kneeling One Arm Row

  3. Lying Fly

  4. Triceps Kickback

  5. Shoulder Press

  6. Lateral Raise

  7. Upright Row

  8. Stationary Lunge

  9. Toe Raise

  10. Alternated Biceps Curl

I also added in a couple planks and bridges on account of my back problems. Try out these exercises the next time your killing time in front of the television.
