Need a quick full-body workout that requires only a single pair of dumbbells?
Coach Myers has you covered. This circuit is great for building muscle endurance as it targets the crucial muscles of the posterior chain: hamstrings, glutes, and lower back. Make sure that you use a medium weight that is appropriate for all of the exercises.
- Back Lunges (both legs)
- Bent-Over Row
- x 3 rounds
Round 1: start with 2 of each movement, then 4 of each, then end with 6 of each exercise
Round 2: the same as round 1, but in reverse - start with 6, then 4, then end with 2 each
Round 3: perform 10 consecutive reps of each exercise
Rest 1 minute between rounds.
