Resistance training is as vital as aerobic exercises when it comes to annihilating plenty of calories, increasing weight loss, and improving body composition.
Here, I’ll share an ultimate weekly 30-minute dumbbell and barbell workout routine that sheds significant calories, promotes weight loss, and builds lean mass.
Pairing this dumbbell barbell routine with bodyweight cardio and a low-calorie diet program will help your help you achieve your best shape over time.
How to Perform Barbell and Dumbbell Workouts to Increase Weight Loss?
Barbells and dumbbells are two incredible pieces of equipment that allow us to perform numerous exercises, from muscle-building to weight loss.
They are free weights, easy to customize, and can be used for both low-impact to high-intensity training.
To destroy maximum calories and accelerate fat loss, you can perform barbell and dumbbell complex workouts.
Complex training involves performing (a set of) exercises back-to-back using a single piece of equipment with no rest between them and without changing weight.
Below, I’ve shared an easy-to-follow but effective 30 minute weekly dumbbell and barbell routine for all those males and females who want to lose weight and shape their physique.
Note: This program will be challenging. So, people with less exercise experience or any health issues should avoid this

Those who have dumbbells only can follow this 30-day full body weight loss plan.
When it comes to performing high-intensity exercises with weights, there is no better equipment than dumbbells and barbells.
Barbells and dumbbells are two incredible pieces of equipment that provide a full range of motion and allow us to perform various exercises to target every muscle group, from the upper to the lower body.
Performing high-intensity complex training with DBs and BBs torch plenty of calories, maximizes fat loss, enhances cardiovascular fitness, builds lean mass, and improves overall body composition.
However, when it comes to muscle-building or fat loss, every fitness goal requires a good diet program, consistent physical training, quality sleep, and a little knowledge of how the body and nutrition work.
You can follow the best workout plan in the world, but if you consume more fat and carbs than your body uses, you can never reduce your weight.
In the same way, a good meal plan can decrease your weight, but if you don’t exercise/lift weights, your lean muscles won’t be thicker or stronger.
So, make sure you combine resistance training, cardio, and a good diet regime to increase weight loss while getting stronger.
