Don’t Fear The Dumbbells! – Chest & Back [workout]

Last month I shared some of my favorite arms and shoulders dumbbell exercises.  This month I’m sharing a few of my favorite exercises for the chest and back!  I love these exercises because, just like with the arms and shoulders workout, all you need is a set of dumbbells.  I use anywhere from 10-15 lbs, depending on the exercise.  It’s important to listen to your body and choose weight that feels challenging but doable.  I’m able to do more weight with the chest exercises.  Make sure to record how much weight you use so know when it’s time to up the pounds!

My favorite exercise from this workout is the Renegade Row.  I love it because it pretty much works everything above the waist!  If you don’t have a lot of time, this is a great exercise for you.  Ten Renegade Rows here, ten there… You’ll be feeling it in no time!

I also want to add for the Chest Press and Chest Flys, I do them on the floor, not on a bench like in the tutorials.  So don’t stress if you don’t have a bench!
