Train For A Hard Body

 

1 CLEAN PULL
Load a barbell and roll it to your shins. Squat down and grab the bar overhand (palms facing you). In a single explosive motion, pull the bar off the floor, straighten your legs, rise onto your toes and shrug your shoulders. Then lower the bar to the floor.

 

 

 

 

  Tip: Keep your arms straight as you shrug your shoulders.

 


 

2 FRONT STEP-UP
Stand in front of a bench holding a barbell across the front of your shoulders. Place your right foot on the bench and push your body up until you’re standing on the bench. Complete your reps on 1 leg before switching to the other leg and repeating.


 

 

 

 

  Tip: Keep your elbows high and upper arms parallel to the floor.
