Home Dumbbell Workout to Get Jacked! (DUMBBELLS ONLY)

Close ×

If you are looking for a home dumbbell workout to get jacked, then this is the video for you. It doesn’t matter if you have a full rack of dumbbells, a single pair, or even just one; this dumbbell workout is doable by anyone. The great thing about this home workout is that you are going to hit your entire body with no additional equipment outside of your dumbbells (not even a bench!)

For this total body workout, you are going to want to grab dumbbells that will allow you to fail in the 6-8 rep range for each exercise. If your dumbbell options are limited, not to worry, I have options for you too. If you find that your dumbbells are too light for a particular exercise, you will perform your reps to failure and then limit in order to achieve a more metabolic burnout. If your dumbbells are too heavy or you only have a single dumbbell available, you will be performing this workout with the exercise swap that allows for you to fail in that 6-8 rep range.

With this home dumbbell workout, the rest time if you are able to fail within the 6-8 rep range will be 90 seconds to 2 minutes. In the event that your dumbbell option doesn’t allow you to fail before 8 reps, you will be performing the exercise to failure and then drop your rest time to 45-60 seconds. This will help equalize the workout for everyone, no matter what access to dumbbells they have.

This first exercise, utilizing a single dumbbell, is the Clean Up and Overs. If you have access to two dumbbells, you will be performing the Clean and Press. These exercises will hit multiple muscle groups to start off the total body workout by targeting the shoulders, upper back, biceps, and legs.

Next up is the Goblet Leg Sequence. This is a brutal dumbbell exercise sequence that will hit will your legs hard and effectively. Holding a single dumbbell in a goblet grip, you will perform a Reverse Lunge on each leg and then return to center before performing a dumbbell goblet squat. If you are utilizing two dumbbells, you would perform the same sequence while keeping the dumbbells at your sides.

Continuing this workout with dumbbells, you’ll be hitting the back and biceps next. To do this with just one dumbbell, you are going to perform the DB T-Bar Row. With access to two dumbbells, you will be performing the DB Dead Row. Utilizing your legs to initiate the movement and bring the dumbbells up to your knees before performing the row and then returning the weight to the floor.

To get jacked, this total body workout is rounded out by targeting the chest, shoulders, & triceps. To do this, you are going to perform, with a single dumbbell, a Crush Grip Floor Press. This exercise doesn’t utilize a bench, which allows for this to be a still effective home workout. With two dumbbells, your exercise swap would be the standard DB Floor Press. Both variations will still target the chest, shoulders, and triceps.

You have the option to round out this dumbbell workout by adding in some additional arm work. This accessory work will help to get jacked arms using just two exercises – one for the biceps and one for the triceps. These are the Single DB Tricep Floor Extensions / DB Tricep Floor Extensions and the DB Waiter Curl / Alt. DB Curl.

1. Clean Up and Overs / Clean and Press: 3 x 6-8 / Failure (rest 90 sec – 2 min / 45-60 sec)
