The 25 Pound Dumbbells Workout

25 pound dumbbells

 

You don’t need to go to a gym or use fancy equipment to sculpt a fantastic physique.  With a pair of 25 pound dumbbells and a desire to achieve you can use this beginner workout routine for men to drop the pounds fast all from the comfort of your own home.

 

We have nothing against gyms (heck, we’re there everyday) or anything against barbells (look at our other workouts), but the use of dumbbells is a quick way to achieve excellent results.  To use dumbbells, you don’t need a lot of space and they’re easy to find.  This workout only last 30 minutes but it hits all the major muscle groups and we believe it to be the best beginner workout routine for men in our arsenal.  Despite that this workout targets men, do not think women cannot do this workout.  My wife does this workout also, but with different weight.

 

Why Using a Set of 25 Pound Dumbbells Works

 

Using a set of dumbbells allows you to work one side of the body, which is awesome in helping correct any imbalances you have developed.  Also, since each muscle group has to move independently the core has to tighten to keep you balanced.  This can result in a 6-Pack.  Looking at the exercises below, you might think the 25 pound dumbbells might be a little light, but keep in mind this is a beginner workout routine and once your body is accustomed to the movement and the weight, you can go with heavier weights.
