You don’t require a gym filled with equipment to build serious muscle, strength, and conditioning. All you need is two dumbbells and a plan! I put together four complexes, each employing nothing more than a pair of dumbbells and your body. Each complex will challenge you in a unique way.
Complexes are great because they force you to complete a high-volume workout in a short quantity of hour. The key is to hang on to the weight until you’ve completed all the movements. No rest until you’ve finished a round!
Once you’ve completed the warm-up, grab a situate of dumbbells, and get your mind and some weights ready. The first time you do the routine, simply work through each complex as best as you can, and don’t fret if it feels a little bit awkward or the weights you have aren’t ideal.
If you have more than one pair of dumbbells available, you’ll likely want increase or lessen the weight depending on the complex. In general, use as much weight as you can, but don’t run so heavy you can’t move well. Rest 2-3 minutes between complexes, and be ready to work.
