There are myriad ways to work your body to exhaustion. You can perform strength moves at home using nothing but your own body, you can hop around the gym using all the latest state-of-the-art equipment, or you can pick just one tool with which you can do a killer total-body workout wherever you choose to sweat. This toning plan uses just one dumbbell to challenge every major muscle group while also zapping excess fat.
This workout is designed for all fitness levels, as you can gradually increase the weight of the dumbbell as you get stronger. For best results, be sure to do a dynamic warm-up (Watch this video for some great exercise suggestions.) and a cool-down like this five-minute stretching routine.
How it works: Perform 3 sets of the prescribed number of reps for each exercise.
You'll need: A 10-pound dumbbell.
