#1. The Wedged-Arm Push-Up
So I call this one the Wedged-Arm Push-Up...you'll need a power rack to do it with because you're going to be bracing your forearms into the uprights of the rack. I found it to really minimize tricep involvement in the push-up exercise and force the VAST majority of the tension onto the pecs (which is what most people are looking for from push-ups!).The uprights of the rack stop the arms from moving in or out during the push-up and the majority of the action then comes at the shoulder (where the pecs attach). I was AMAZED at how well this forced the tension onto the pecs and took it off the triceps! Check it out here (It's on YouTube - feel free to subscribe to my channel on there, too! I post a lot of great exercises regularly there that I don't post in the newsletter here).
#2. 15 Minutes of Training Without Setting the Dumbell Down
If you've had a look at that One Dumbell Circuit that I've mentioned a couple of times in the last few days, you might have read that you can also do this one without ever setting the dumbell on the ground. Well, I've just posted a video of THAT on my Facebook page. I didn't show the whole 15 minutes...just one round through the 3 exercise cycle at the beginning and one at the end to give you an idea of how I managed it. This training was BRUTAL. Loved it. All it took was 15 minutes and I hit every single bodypart, using just one dumbell and my metabolism was RAGING for hours. If you're short on time but still want a killer fat-burning workout, TRY THIS. And if you HAVE tried it, post your comments on that page! :)
#3. New Research-Backed Test-Boosting Supplement
This is a new one from my partners at Prograde. I'm a BIG fan of Prograde's stuff - I use it all the time myself. I haven't had a chance to try this one out yet but I know how stringent they are in the formulations...whatever they put in MUST be backed by research or it doesn't go in. If you're a man and you have low "test" (I'm not using the full word, obviously, or email filters will catch it), you're going to have a much harder time gaining muscle and it even keeping it as you get older. This is ABSOLUTELY a supplement worth having a look at.It's got 6 ingredients, ALL backed by research, that can have a big effect on how you look and feel. ALSO, to celebrate the release of this new product, EVERYTHING is 10% at the entire Prograde online store.
