Are home dumbbell workouts a substitute for a gym? Where can I find dumbbell workout plans?
Any kind of workout accomplished outside a gym is a substitute for a gym workout.
Dumbbell workout plans can be Googled. They are available in abundance.
Personally, I like the following for upper body:
- Incline DB Press
- 2-arm DB Row
- Seated Military Press
- Single-arm DB Row
- Seated DB Triceps Press
- Alternating DB Biceps Curls
On lower-body days I'll sometimes do the following:
- DB Front Squats
- Ab Curls
- Lunges with DBs
- Straight-leg Deadlifts
I'll usually repeat the above exercise sets through 3–4 rotations, increasing the weight with each rotation.
