Some people get lucky and are born with fit, toned bodies… I loves to exercise–I does so six days a week–and loves to share his passion for fitness and health with others.
Barbell T-Bar Row
This works just like the regular bent-over row, but it’s much easier on your back. Get a regular barbell and place one end of it in the corner of the room. Load up the other end with weights. Straddle the loaded end of the bar, and grip it between your legs. Bring the heavy end to your chest, using your bodyweight to keep the empty end safely tucked into the corner of the room.
Horizontal Bench Holds
This exercise is like the “Superman,” but for your abs instead of your back. Sit on the edge of a weight bench and cross your legs beneath the bench. Sit back until your torso is parallel to the weight bench–but hanging off the edge. Hold for up to 60 seconds for some seriously shredded abs!
Tired of doing the plank? Has the exercise gotten too easy? Try the Plank Walk, and be amazed by how badly it hurts by the time you’re done. Simply assume the plank position, and walk forward by moving one limb at a time. Focus on keeping your form perfect, and move slowly until you get the form right. Try to go for time instead of distance. Make it harder by moving backwards, doing a push-up between each movement, or bring your knees to your elbow with each step.
