Sling Shot – Back and Chest Workout with Dumbbells at Home

back and chest workout with dumbbells at home

Train your back and chest in 25 minutes at home with a pair of dumbbells

Home workouts are often complicated unnecessarily by people when in fact the simplest exercises often work the best.

This workout takes 2 favourites and combines them in supersets to give your chest and back a huge stimulus.

The focus of this workout is primarily on the back with heavy floor rows.

By interrupting the rows with press-ups the back becomes more charged with the negative movement of the press-up.  Then when you come back to the rows straight after you are able to row harder.

The workout in detail


For this workout you’ll need one pair or a mixture of these

  • Dumbbells
  • Kettlebells
  • Resistance Band

You could also potentially do this with a straight or EZ bar.


Workout Structure

This workout consists of Giant Sets, this means you do 4 sets in one big set.  After each set of reps you change to the next exercise and so on until you’ve completed 4 sets.  That block of 4 consistutes one working set.

For example you will complete the first set as follows

  1. Dumbbell Floor Row – 5 reps
  2. Pause Press Up – 5 reps
  3. Dumbbell Floor Row – 5 reps
  4. Pause Press Up – 5 reps



Go to Failure

Muscle is built from taking it to failure.  This is why the last giant set of 20 is just a target.

You need to take the set to total failure which means doing 2 failure sets for each exercise WITHIN the last giant set.

It’s these types of tweaks that make home workouts challenging.
