Some of the world’s best-conditioned men use this workout, designed by Robert Dos Remedios, a US-based strength and conditioning coach, and author of Men’s Health Power Training. “As a collegiate strength and conditioning coach, I work with guys of average strength and size every day. My job is to turn them into elite performers,” he says.
“My workouts have helped hundreds of average athletes become Division I scholarship players and even NFL (National Football League) game-breakers,” Dos Remedios says. “But by developing explosive speed, strength and power, these men also attain something more – the chiselled look of a high-performance athlete.” Use this plan to redefine your body and raise your game. The training is short, intense and if you put in the effort, highly effective.
