This workout pulls double duty: It not only carves and tightens your core, but it also prevents lower back pain in the process, says Men’s Health Fitness Director BJ Gaddour. The routine consists of five core stability exercises: bird dog, hollow-body hold, front plank, side plank, and back plank. Each exercise hits your midsection from a different angle, sculpting and strengthening your midsection in 360 degrees, he says.
This chest workout consists of only one exercise—the pushup—but it’s hard as hell. That’s because it uses varying tempos to cumulatively challenge the same muscle groups, says Men’s Health Fitness Director BJ Gaddour. First, you’ll go as fast as possible, cranking out as many reps as you can in a row. This tempo provides constant tension in your pecs, maximizing muscle growth, he says.
