Workout Plan For January: Dumbbells!

Here is a 3 day split program designed for all of you dumbbells out there. Seriously, this is a dumbbell only program. I'm referring, of course, to the equipment, not the users of said equipment.

Here is a 3 day split program designed for all of you dumbbells out there. Seriously, this is a dumbbell only program. I'm referring, of course, to the equipment, not the users of said equipment. This is an excellent workout program that should help to break the monotony of the standard program. It is all inclusive, so you could follow it as described and see excellent results, or you may simply choose one of the workouts and substitute it into your 3 day split. I suggest you use lifting straps on most of the exercise days, as your grip strength may become an issue during the end of the workouts. Good luck and train hard!!

Note: 4 X 12,10,8,6 in the third column means that you do 4 sets. On the first set reach muscular failure (the most reps possible for you to do with that weight) at 12 reps, then 10 reps on the second set, then 8 reps and then 6 reps on the last set.
