Upper Body Adjustable Dumbbell Workout For Beginners …https://www.liveanabolic.com
Working out at home is happening more now than ever before. Resistance bands sold quickly when the gyms closed, and now so are adjustable dumbbells. Adjustable dumbbells are amazing for being able to workout at home and really work your muscles to their highest capabilities. That is why I am going to show you an amazing upper body adjustable dumbbell workout for beginners. Make sure to stick around to the end of the video because I am going to give you a bonus tip on how to build muscle in your upper body to make it look amazing! In this workout, especially for you beginners, I want you to pick a heavy enough weight where you can do 15 reps without too much difficulty. By reps, I mean good form, high quality reps. Now, let’s get started with the exercises in this upper body dumbbell workout at home.
Exercise #1: SEATED OVERHEAD PRESS. We are working our shoulders first in this dumbbell workout. Make sure to keep your back straight. Bring the dumbbells straight up, and bring them down to 90 degrees. You don’t need to bring the dumbbells down to your shoulders. Use slow controlled movements and proper form.
Exercise #2: ONE-ARM BACK ROW. Now we are on to working our back in this upper body workout. Make sure to have a wide base with your feet. Bring the dumbbell up to your hip, initiating the movement with your elbow. Don’t twist your hips or move your back because then you are using momentum and using other muscles.
Exercise #3: ALTERNATING CURL WITH TWIST. Now it is time for the biceps. As you are bringing the dumbbell up, you are twisting the dumbbell in so it is facing up towards the ceiling. Control the weight for the whole movement, not just when you are bringing the weight up. This is an isolation movement that is solely focused on the biceps. Make sure not to swing your arms, because using momentum will take work away from your biceps.
Exercise #4: CHEST PRESS. You can do this exercise on the floor. It does limit your range of motion, so make sure not to let your elbows rest on the ground. Slow the movement down to have more time under tension to make up for the limited range of motion.
Exercise #5: TRICEP KICKBACKS. Keep your elbow to your side, and try to keep it in the same position. Focus on pushing the dumbbell all the way back and flex your tricep at the top of the movement. Slow controlled movement is key for focusing on just using your triceps in this exercise.
Alright guys, those are the 5 exercises in this dumbbell workout at home for your upper body.
NOW FOR THE BIG SECRET. HOW DO YOU GET AN UPPER BODY THAT LOOKS BIGGER? It starts with your back! It tends to be neglected because you can’t see it. If you have a big, wide, muscular back, it looks great even with a shirt on.
