Strengthen Your Abs and Arms in 7 Moves With 2 Dumbbells (Smile Optional, but Encouraged!)
If you're lucky enough to have a set of dumbbells at home, here's a workout you can do to target your abs and arms. Celebrity trainer Jeanette Jenkins shared this circuit workout to strengthen all areas of your core, and don't worry if you don't have a set of weights — you can improvise with a set of water bottles, soup cans, or whatever else you have on hand. We think this workout would be great to do after a run or bike ride to keep your core and upper body strong!
