Full Body Workout for Home with Dumbbells

Full Body Workout for Home with Dumbbells

Full Body Workout at Home with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

Great for home! Full body strength workout using only 1 dumbbell for women over 40.

One of my favourite workouts is my Gladiator Workout. It’s a cult fave with my classes, and my Patreon community too.

And… this is why I wanted to re-vamp it and freshen it up a bit (since the original was recorded 5 years ago).

This newly re-vamped version only uses 1 dumbbell and chair.

As with the original, we have 10 exercises that will hit every muscle in the body, done in a circuit format so we max the calorie burn.

Have fun!!

TOOLS NEEDED

1 heavy dumbbell (I’m using a 15lb), and a sturdy chair

THE WORKOUT

1. Goblet squat
2. Prine squat to toe touches
3. Woodchops
4. T push-ups
5. Alternating reverse lunges (sub bridges if lunges hurt your knees)
6. Alternating bent-over row
7. Alternating side to side lunges (sub step-out-side to side squats if lunges bother the knees)
8. Alternating renegade row (sub alt bent-over wide row)
9. Alternating steps ups on a chair (sub wall sit)

3 x 50sec
