That's the beauty of density training: It's a whole lot of stuff you haven't tried yet. And best of all, it'll hit your major muscles in a fraction of the time. Instead of counting reps and sets, you'll focus on the total amount of work you can accomplish in a fixed amount of time. Unsure what exercises you should focus on? THE PLAN: Do three density workouts a week, with at least 1 day off in between. Pushup Assume a pushup position, with your hands slightly beyond shoulder-width apart, feet together, and body in a straight line from head to ankles. Reverse Lunge and 1-Arm Press Stand holding a pair of dumbbells next to your shoulders. Inverted Row Lie underneath a secured bar. Prisoner Squat Place your fingers on the back of your head, pull your elbows and shoulders back, and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Goblet Squat

Men's Health - Power Training - Explosive The Men's Health Power Training explosive exercise menu category is quite extensive. The reasoning here is that as you become more proficient with the basic exercises, you will be able to further challenge yourself by moving to more difficult variations. As you can see in the figure at right, it is difficult to pinpoint one specific muscle group that will be targeted during these exercises. If I was to name the single important menu category that is generally sadly neglected, it would be this one. Most trainees don't see the importance of incorporating these types of exercises in their training programs.

The Big Arms Workout This arm-expanding workout overloads your biceps and triceps for guaranteed growth. The program is only 2 days a week, because the exercises challenge all the muscles in your body; you'll need the rest of the week to recover and grow.

Now it’s time to combine them… ____________________________ The traveling kip up is one of my favourite upper body pulling exercises.

This is a pretty advanced movement. If you’ve already got some strong pull up experience.
