Not Sure What to Do With Dumbbells? Try These 10 Strength-Training Workout Videos at Home

You don't need a gym to stay fit if you know where to look. YouTube, for instance, has a library of at-home workout videos at your disposal (here are 10-minute arm workouts, a handful of core-crushing routines, and booty band videos to prove it). Sure, you don't have a trainer to correct your form. Sure, it's up to you to keep yourself accountable, but the pros outweigh the cons if you are someone who's short on time or doesn't have access to a facility. Even if your goal is clocking in a few strength training days per week, YouTube has got you covered.

Ahead, check out workout videos from certified trainers that only require a single set of dumbbells. Some videos are ab-focused, arm-focused, or booty-focused; others are full-body. All are kick-butt! If you're not sure what the best weight is for you, here's a guide on how to choose. These workouts also vary in length (we're all about giving you options), so grab your dumbbells and take your pick!

Grab a set of dumbbells between five and 10 pounds, or whichever weight feels comfortable — you can go lighter or heavier.

You'll end with the lateral side bend, holding a single dumbbell up over your head.
