Dumbbell workout plan is a vety nice plan. It should be completed with an efficient workout system.There is such a system from fitness and nutrition specialist Flavia del Monte.Since two months I am following it and I am very satisfied with it. I am now slimmer, fitter, healthier, and most probably sexier ( my boy friend's opinion ). I recommend everybody this system. You can find in : http://flaviafitness.info

This workout is basically only four arm moves, bicep curls, tricep kickbacks, reverse flys and lateral lifts done in different positions, standing, lunging, kneeling etc. Where is the originality?

I must concur with all the others - I'm less likely to do these as often as I should because it's in a pile of papers as opposed to a nice clean PDF sheet. If fitness of your readers is truly your goal, then give us what we're clamoring for. Thanks so much.

I love the workouts but it would be much easier if they were just in a pdf format so that i could print them off and take them to the gym. Great workouts though!

I enjoy the workouts you guys put on the site, but I do wish there was another way to view them, not just "slideshow".
