Get in pushup position, with your feet elevated on a box. Push your hips up so that your trunk is almost perpendicular to the floor. Lower your body until your head almost touches the floor. Return to the start position and repeat.

2A. Close-Grip Pushup – 12 reps

2B. Box Dip – 12 reps
Stand between two waist-high boxes. Place your clenched fists, knuckles-down, on top of the boxes. Lift yourself so your arms are completely straight. Bend your knees and slowly lower yourself by flexing your elbows until your upper arms are parallel to the floor. Repeat for the recommended reps.

2C. Rope Inverted Lat Row – 12 reps
Loop a climbing rope over a sturdy overhead anchor. Grab the ends of the rope about three feet off the floor and hang with your arms completely straight.
