Get out your dumbbells for today’s workout! We are going to work on sculpting strong and beautifully shaped muscles. I used 20-lb dumbbells in today’s workout, but you can choose an amount of weight that is challenging for you.
If you are doing this routine with body weight only, try to increase the number of reps. My recommendations for reps are below, but you can always adjust the workout to meet your own training needs.
