. 1. Squat jumps 2. High knees Start at 20 reps of each. With no rest do 18 of each. Then 16. Countdown by Twos until you do 2 of each. Better than the treadmill any day. Enjoy

. Just let me get scientific for a momment. Ther are too types of muscle tone, 1. myogenic - which is what your muscles look like at rest. Either look 'soft' or 'dense' ie ripped. 2 Neurogenic- What you muscles look like when they are moving, like when your are flexing in front of the mirror. So, to develop these two types of muscle tone, doing high reps with low weights so you can feel the burn is OUT. There is no science or reasearch behind that theory. Heavier weights and lower reptitions are IN.

 You can be strong, even if you struggle to gain lean mass or lose fat. You have the ability to get stronger, right now regardless of where your at. Take it form me. I was 6' 2inches and a whopping 145 pounds in my early 20's. With alot of guess work and reading and watching what people do in the gym i am now a strong 180 pounds. Focusing on getting stronger will help with lean mass , fat loss and whatever goals you have. Cause stronger is better. Period.

. This months Mens health mag has a couple moves that trainers hate They are the kipping pullup( if you have not seen it google it.....terrrible), 45 degree leg press(no core strength required) Tricep dip( ouch for you shoulders when done incorrectly). I like to add a few more, Close grip upright rows- shoulder killer. Crunches done on the floor- low back killer. Ok peeps which ones do you hate? please leave comments below

 YOU ARE NOT TAKING ANY 'TIME OFF'- Very good strength programs have a 'overeaching period' to push your body to where it has never been before, followed by lowered training stress to allow your body to recover and get stronger. You cannot hit your PR every training session. I used to be guilty of this. Till i figured out this why i was worn out and injured all the time. Dont make the same mistake.
