1. DUMBBELL CURL
Hold a dumbbell in each hand and, keeping your upper arms in place, curl the weights.
2. LATERAL BAND WALK
Wrap an elastic band around your ankles and step sideways for 20 feet and then come back, keeping tension on your legs throughout.
Reps: 30 sec.
Place one foot on a bench or box, as shown. Step up onto the surface, but don’t rest the trailing leg on it. Alternate legs each rep.
2. LEG LIFT
Reps: To failure
Lie on the floor and hold onto a bench or the legs of a heavy chair for support. Keep your legs straight and raise them up until they’re vertical. Lower back down, but stop just short of the floor to keep tension on your abs before the next rep.
Men's Fitness training director Sean Hyson, C.S.C.S., assembled a team of the best trainers in the world to create boredom-beating, plateau-busting routines that cover any amount of time you have to exercise and whatever tools you have available to do it. Programs cover every body part, every implement (barbells, dumbbells, bands, etc.), and cardio. There's a nutrition plan, too.
