This 5-Minute, 5-Move Dumbbell Arm Workout Is All You Need to Feel Sore Tomorrow
If you really want to build strong, defined muscles, using weights will give you an edge over bodyweight exercises. You don't have to spend hours in the gym lifting heavy barbells (although that sure is fun!). Just grab a pair of dumbbells, and do this five-minute workout. We promise: your arms will be burning by the end!
5-Minute Dumbbell Arm Workout
Directions: You'll need a light pair of dumbbells for this workout, so choose a weight depending on your strength (between two and 15 pounds is a good place to start). Perform each move ahead for 60 seconds without rest. For even more of an arm burn, repeat this workout a total of three times.
If you have shoulder issues or tightness, it's always a good idea to warm up your upper body before going into a workout. Do some arm circles, a few Down Dog to Tuck-Toe Up Dogs, and some band pull aparts.
Overhead shoulder press
Wide bicep curl
Bent-over reverse fly
Details of how to do each move are ahead.
