Although you will need a set of weights like the best adjustable dumbbells for one or two of the moves, the workout utilizes a variety of resistance training equipment like suspension trainers and cable machines.

Bradley Simmonds, the personal trainer behind this circuit, said, "this is a great workout to build a stronger back and to finish off with a nice bicep pump." There are six single-exercise moves and a seventh three-move finisher to work your arms.
