You don’t need a $2,000 home fitness center to get a great workout at home. Actually, you can accomplish a lot with just 1 set of dumbells.

Some Exercises Include:

curls
chest press
chest flies
shoulder shrugs
crunches w/ weight
tricep extensions
shoulder press
lunges
squats
calf raises

As you can see, this is an impressive list standing alone. With more creativity, you can easily add 5 more ways to strengthen your muscles – and this is just from one set of barbells.

For women, I recommend a 8 to 15 lb set. For men, I recommend a 20 to 45 lb set. Obviously these numbers vary according to your capability, but generally you want to get a weight that could present a challenge in most exercises – perhaps even a little heavy at first so you can grow into it. Of course, if you’re willing to spend more money, you can always buy another weight to go along with your first set.

This goes to show you don’t need an entire home fitness center. With just a pair of dumbells and your body weight, you can have a great resistance training session.
