How to Work Out in a Busy Gym

A new year means new resolution-minded members crowding your gym. But even if your workout facility is busier than usual, you can still get a 20-minute fat-burning workout. Just keep in mind this simple system: lower body, push, and pull. To maximize your routine, grab a pair of dumbbells and a bench and you’re good to go.

If you have heavier dumbbells, here’s what you do:

  • Bulgarian split-squats (no weight), high reps
  • Chest press with dumbbells
  • Dumbbell rows using those same dumbbells

If you only have access to lighter dumbbells, here’s what you do:

  • Use weights on the Bulgarian split-squats
  • Incline press or flat press with high reps
  • Dumbbell chest-supported rows

Do the three-move circuit three or four times before proceeding to another round of exercises.

  • Dumbbell reverse lunge OR Dumbbell Romanian deadlift
  • One-handed dumbbell overhead press
  • Any type of rowing or pulling exercise (TRX row or any variation of pullups)
