Beast Skills - Tutorials The elbow lever is a position where the body is held up horizontal to the ground. But unlike the planche (where there is NO support along the length of the body), the elbow lever uses one’s elbows as a resting and balancing point for the body. This makes the skill much easier than a planche. An elbow lever - It’s a fairly simple skill really. The Hands You’ll want to put your hands down on the ground about shoulder width apart, with the fingers pointing to the side, or even slightly backwards. The Elbow Stab What’s this about stabbing? As you can see from the picture above, you’ll be placing your elbows to either side of the middle. The picture below shows a single elbow stab into the correct position. ۬If you were to take one arm and stretch it across your body like so, then you can easily find the correct position. Of course, this is also a good stretch to do if you find inflexibility is making the elbow stab difficult. The Start The End

Top 20 Bodyweight Exercises For Building Muscle & Strength Bodyweight exercises need to be part of your program if you want to get jacked. But not just pushups, sit ups and high rep calisthenics. That’s beginner stuff that won’t build any real muscle. We’re talking about really working hard on high tension, advanced bodyweight exercises that can only be done for somewhere between five and ten reps, on average. The nice thing about these is that they’re very natural and can usually be done pain free by most people. They can be added to any program along with barbells, dumbbells and strongman implements. That’s the ultimate combination for building high performance mass. Or you can use nothing but bodyweight exercises. Below is a list of my top 20 bodyweight exercises for size and strength. 1) Chin/ Pull Up This exercise will build the lats and biceps very effectively. The parallel grip chin/ pull up is easiest on the shoulders and elbows and is the one I recommend most. 2) Rope Climb Awesome for true functional, relative strength. 3) Inverted Row PS.

The Spartacus Workout Three years ago, producers at Starz asked Men’s Health to create a workout worthy of the name Spartacus, the network’s hit original series. With the help of Rachel Cosgrove, C.S.C.S., an Ironman triathlete and 2012 personal trainer of the year, we did just that—and it became the most popular workout in Men’s Health history! Now we’ve made it even better. Cosgrove’s newest version of the Spartacus Workout is called the Triple Set Scorcher. It uses triple sets to fire up your metabolism and melt flab at a blistering pace.

Is this seven-minute workout all you need? Try this 12-move exercise regime that requires no equipment and about seven minutes. The abbreviated workout, published in the May-June issue of the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fitness Journal, also includes lunges, push-ups and triceps dips. The researchers believe it’s an efficient way to get aerobic and strength training in one. Chris Jordan, director of exercise physiology at the Human Performance Institute in Orlando, Fla. and one of the authors of the article, says his abbreviated workout uses simple but challenging moves that create high-intensity intervals. He says that for years, a growing body of research has expanded on the benefits of this “highly efficient” mode of training. “Established research has proven that it works,” says Jordan. Martina Gibala, chair of McMaster University’s department of Kinesiology, says Jordan’s seven minute workout would be useful for many. <bullet> Abdominal crunch <bullet> Step-up onto chair <bullet> Triceps dip on chair
