This single-equipment workout will help you build strength and muscle definition without having to move around the gym. You will need to adjust the weight for each exercise.
Remember to warm up and cool down before and after each session.
For each exercise, perform 5 sets of 5 reps, resting for 90 seconds between sets, unless otherwise indicated. Use a challenging weight that allows you to complete all reps. If the weight is too easy, slightly increase it. If the weight is too hard, slightly decrease it.
