FAQs
Who is this program for?
This program is for anyone who is looking to build muscle! The program only requires access to dumbbells so anyone benefit from doing this program or supplementing it with other training! If you are a true beginner or trying to get back into lifting also check out my beginner friendly DB workout!
What is the difficulty of this program?
This program can be as challenging as you make it. You get to choose your own weight and how far to push yourself every session. The movements are ideal for intermediate lifters but can also be regressed as needed.
What if I need something easier?
I have several other plans on my page that require even less equipment such as bodyweight only or mini band workouts. Feel free to check them out! Also feel free to find me on TikTok, Youtube and Instagram for training tips and free workouts!
