Afterburn Full Body Dumbbell Workout At Home For Toned Muscle

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, coach Jessica takes you through the best dumbbell workout at home to burn fat and tone.

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

Full Body Dumbbell Workout At Home To Burn Fat And Tone

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

Total time:

45 minutes.

Type of workout:

This full body dumbbell workout is comprised of Ripped Compound Circuits.

Don’t be fooled by the word “circuits”.

These aren’t the same workout circuits your Aunt Margaret does.

Ripped Circuits are designed to strip away the fat and reveal your ripped and lean muscle.

Number of Circuits:

This dumbbell workout at home contains 3 dumbbell circuits, comprised of 4 compound exercises per circuit.

You’re going to complete 3 sets of each exercise in circuit format.

If you’re a beginner, complete 2 sets per circuit.

After completing 3 sets of each circuit, finish the workout with a sweaty 4 minute afterburn finisher.

Rest:

Take a quick 30 second rest between exercises within the circuit.

If you’re a beginner, take a 40 second rest between exercises.

After completing the 4 exercises in the circuit, rest for 1 minute before starting your second set and third set.

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 each circuit, 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 circuit of exercises.

Exercises:

Each exercise within the circuit follows a different movement pattern, while targeting and activating a different major muscle group.

Every afterburn exercise has been strategically selected to ensure you target the biggest muscles in the body.

This will increase overall calorie burning during the workout, as well as after the workout (i.e. EPOC), while you’re at home recovering.

You shouldn’t have anything left in the tank to rep out the last rep, so choose the weight accordingly.

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

Let’s get started.
