20-Minute Single Dumbbell Workout From Massy Arias

If You Only Have 1 Dumbbell (or a Soup Can), Try This Intense 20-Minute HIIT Workout

If you're not used to working out at home, you probably don't own a lot of gym equipment, and that's OK! For this 20-minute workout, you only need a single dumbbell — or grab a soup can or water bottle if you don't own weights. Certified personal trainer Massy Arias shared this intense HIIT workout on her Instagram page to inspire you to move and sweat.

For this circuit workout, complete five rounds of 15 seconds per movement (30 seconds if there are two sides):

  1. Dumbbell goblet squat
  2. Bear bridge with press
  3. Single arm curtsy lunge
  4. Single leg bridge with dumbbell tricep extension
  5. Modified side plank with adduction
  6. Lateral high knees

Massy said "go at your own pace completing reps at the given time for each movement. Each round will take about three minutes to complete taking very little rest between movements. Rest accordingly after each round."

I love how some of these moves aren't basic, which not works your muscles in different ways, but also takes the boredom out of doing simple moves you may not be inspired to do. If you need another home workout idea, try Massy's challenging chair workout.
