There are for sure workouts I can do to build all my muscles at home with just dumbbells. Just trying to figure out what are those exercises and how many I need to do.
Do it properly. You could split your schedule into three days if you don't have enough time.

arms/legs
chest/back/shoulders
cardio/abs

Also if you're really serious about working out make sure you clean up your diet. I would recommend a protein shake as well this is what I use

It's natural. No artifical ingredients, hormones, or all that other shit you find in other proteins. It's quality shit.

i go four times a week. everyone's different in terms of preference and what actually works, but i like to isolate body parts on different days. i'll generally do 3-4 exercise for each area and increase the weight for each set, to maximize the reps i can do at max. monday is my chest day and it looks something like this:

Flat barbell bench: 4 sets increasing weight (1st set is a warmup on a light weight)
Incline dumbbell bench: 4 sets increasing weight
Flyes (some sort of stretch motion): 3 sets constant weight
Cable pulls: 3 sets increasing weight

It's good to mix it up every once in a while and change the exercises up to shock your body, because your muscles get used to what you're doing. in a couple weeks for example, i'll be switching it up on chest day where i'm starting off with incline barbell bench and moving on to flat dumbbell bench. i've seen some really good results on this routine and i never end up staying longer than an hour with any of my workouts which is good because your body generally hits a point of diminishing marginal return after about an hour of working out.

I mix up my excercises so I don't get bored. I've been going to the gym for nearly 3 years now and if you do the same excercise and routine you get bored quite fast.

I do 3-4 sets with heavy weight.

First Set: 8 reps
Second Set: 7-8 reps
Third Set: 6-7 Reps
Fourth Set: 6 reps

If you've just started working out I wouldn't recommend this. If your new try to get a feel for the excercise real good and do 8-10 reps of 3-4 sets of good weight. By good weight I mean not so much weight to the point where you are ruining your form. As you get to heavier weight you will realize that you begin to break your form slightly. This is likely to happen because sooner or later you have to tweak your form slightly bit to get results in your workout.

I wouldn't recommend doing Chest/back/shoulders in a single workout. Chest on it's own is huge.

I've been lifting weights for the past 13 years (on/off), and tried a lot of things and techniques. I can't go into everything, it would take too long, but you've got to figure out what works for YOU (what's gonna give you the best results while avoiding any injury).

That means spending some time education your self on nutrition**big one**, proper exercise, psychology, stupid myths, and so on.

One advise that I can give you, and I'm talking from personal experience, is that you've gotta view this (weight loss/ weight gain) as a long term project. People often think that achieving results is relatively quick and "as easy as 8 minutes a day". Once you change your mind set about the exercise (living healthy), then everything changes.

As for your workout routine, I'd strongly recommend that you visit this website: Scoobys Home Bodybuilding Workouts (or his youtube account: YouTube - scooby1961's Channel).

The guy gives free (real) advise on everything relating to bodybuilding, plus he shows it to you by making videos.

Here are few of his videos:

Any way, hope this helps.

Good luck!

that's an ideal workout week for me. it works for me and it jives with my schedule, but try it out. like i said everyone is different. in terms of your upper body, chest and back are by far your biggest muscle groups so you definitely don't want to be doing anything else on chest and back day. that is if you do decide to isolate. realistically you're getting supplementary work on your shoulders and tris on chest day, and you're getting a lot of bicep and shoulder work on back day. don't worry too much about isolation work on your arms, compound lifts will get you there.

It's not always about eating a lot. It's about eating the right foods at the right times. Take this from someone who went from 135 pounds to 190 pounds in 4 years.
