Getting double gains (more muscle and less flab) from a single workout is possible with multitasking. In this, you create a circuit that allows you to move one part of your body while doing a static dumbbell hold for another part. The result that you get would be a calorie-torching exercise that would build strength where you’d need it the most.

Hold two dumbbells of as much weight as you are comfortable with. Stand straight, holding the dumbbells right above your shoulders, arms straight up in the air. Kneeling a straight line, from knees to head, holding the dumbbells in the same position, palms facing each other. Now place your right foot forward and push yourself into a standing position. Repeat with left leg. This completes one rep. Perform 8 to 10 reps without resting. Rest for 30 seconds and repeat 8 to 10 reps. Do 2-3 rounds, as per your stamina.
Swiss Ball Chest Press with Hip Raise
Swiss ball is an excellent prop to double your exercise gains. Lie on a Swiss ball with your head and upper back resting firmly. Catch hold of a dumbbell with your left hand at shoulder level, palm facing forward. Bend knees at 90 degrees. Lift left foot off the floor, a few inches only and drop your hips till your lower back touches the ball. Press the dumbbell up until your arm is straight; raise your hips to form a straight line with your body from knees to your head. This is one rep. Perform 2-3 rounds with 8 to 10 reps each.
Swiss Ball Extension
Lie with your chest on a Swiss ball with dumbbells in each hand. Arms should be straight down from shoulders, palms facing each other. Raise your hands to make a T by pulling your shoulder blades down and together. Hold for few seconds. Raise your torso while holding the arm position until your body forms a straight line from shoulders to hips. Lower torso and repeat 8 to 9 reps. Complete 2-3 circles.
