Fit Tip Thursday At-Home Chest Workout

The sun is out, temperatures are on the rise and we are heading into BBQ season. All this fun in the sun leaves very little time to get to the gym and getting in a good chest workout at home can be a challenge especially if you have minimal equipment. This routine solves that problem and all you need is a set of dumbbells.

Though this video can be used as a standalone routine, it is best to use this as part of a larger program that targets other areas of the body. We suggest coupling it with some kind of cardio beforehand as well as targeting the upper back and biceps (the muscles that oppose the ones used in this workout) to create a well-rounded push-pull routine.

Though this routine is not necessarily a heavy hitter for calories it will continue to burn calories long after you are done due to the after burn effect of strength training. Though not as high as after a HIIT routine it can still add up to a substantial extra burn not to mention that strength training can increase your metabolism in the long run.
