Fitness Tips – Day 4 (Dumbbells)

Today’s fitness tips are focused on using dumbbells for extra weight. Many of the exercise tips for today are combination moves. Keep in mind, these moves are not all-inclusive, meaning there are plenty of other exercises that are not mentioned. These are just meant to give you some moves to try. You can combine them together, or combine them with moves for other body parts. Whatever you decide to do, be sure to WARM UP FIRST. We will be doing a video later that talks about different ways to warm up your muscles.

  • Chest squeeze to overhead press
  • Bicep curl up to hammer curl down
