At Home Dumbbell Workout To Get Cut And Ripped

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m taking you through a home dumbbell full body workout for fat loss and a lean body.

This is 1 of the 24 dumbbell workouts from my brand new Afterburn-DB workout program.

Home Dumbbell Full Body Workout For Fat Loss And Lean Body

Here’s how this home dumbbell full body workout is structured.

Total time:

30 minutes.

Type of workout:

This full body dumbbell workout is comprised of metabolic complexes.

If I had to describe what complexes are, I’d say they are cardio with weights.

These metabolic complex workouts are focused on igniting the afterburn to dial your body in to burn those last few pounds of stubborn fat.

If you’re not sweating after this full body complex workout, your sweat glands are MIA.

I love complex training because it is one of the fastest training styles to incinerate fat without burning into muscle.

Number of Complexes:

This workout is comprised of 2 dumbbell complexes comprised of 4 full body exercises, followed by an afterburn igniter exercise.

You’re going to complete 3 complex sets of 5 reps per exercise.

After completing 3 sets of each complex, you’ll then complete the workout with a sweaty 4 minute afterburner finisher.

If you’re a beginner, stick to completing 2 sets of each complex.

Rest:

There are no breaks between exercises within the complex circuit.

You don’t even get to drop the dumbbell between exercises.

You’ll quickly move from one exercise to the next, without letting go of the dumbbells.

This means you’ll be using the same dumbbell for every exercise within the complex.

So choose a challenging weight that you can lift for the most challenging exercise within the complex.

For example, in the first complex, the dumbbell clean and press will probably be the hardest exercise.

Based on this, select a weight that you can complete that exercise for the required amount of reps, with proper form.

After completing the 4 exercises in the complex, you’ll rest for 2 minutes before starting your second set and third set.

If you’re a beginner, rest for 3 minutes.

Tempo:

Make sure you follow the given tempos for each exercise.

This will increase the time under tension, while also increasing power and strength.

Afterburn Igniter:

After finishing your third and final set of the first complex, immediately proceed to complete the Afterburn Igniter exercise.

Whenever you see “Afterburn Igniter”, complete the bodyweight exercise for the prescribed time or rep count.

These Afterburn Igniter exercises are intended to:

After finishing the Afterburn Igniter reps, move on to the next complex of exercises.

Exercises:

Each complex is broken down into 4 compound exercises that will hit the total body.

Every afterburn exercise has been strategically selected to ensure all the major muscles in the body are activated.

Before you start the workout, complete the warm up as found in the Afterburn DB program.

Let’s get started.

Even though the reps and sets are the same, your body will be forced to work harder as the workout progresses.

Coaching cues: after finishing 3 sets of complex B, move directly into the 4 minute afterburn finisher.

4 Minute Afterburn Finisher

These 4 minute afterburn finisher workouts are completed at the end of your workout.

I call them “workout finishers”, in other words, the final fat burning and metabolism boasting kick to ignite the afterburn effect.

You’ll complete each exercise in circuit format, twice, following a 20 seconds of work, followed by a 10 second rest interval.

That equals 4 minutes.

This workout finisher is comprised of the following 4 bodyweight exercises:

C1. Bench Jump

Reps: 20 seconds

Tempo: N/A

Rest: 10 seconds

Sets: 2

C2. Feet Elevated Shoulder Press Push Up

Reps: 20 seconds

Tempo: N/A

Rest: 10 seconds

Sets: 2

C3. Bench Hop Over

Reps: 20 seconds

Rest: 10 seconds

Sets: 2

C4. Jump Squat To Mountain Climber Combo

Reps: 20 seconds

Tempo: N/A

Rest: 10 seconds

Sets: 2

After completing the Afterburner Finisher, move on to the cool down as found in the Afterburn-DB program.

Use this home dumbbell workout to burn those last 10 pounds of stubborn body fat, while maintaining your lean, calorie burning, muscle tissue.
