Here's a 10-minute workout that focuses the work on your arms and abs. All you need is a set of medium dumbbells, between five and 10 pounds, but do increase or decrease the weight as needed. Since it is a short, time-saving workout, transition quickly between exercises, and keep your rest time between sets short.
