Train For A Hard Body

Stand holding a barbell across the back of your shoulders. Place 1 heel on 2 weight plates stacked just in front of you. With that leg straight and your back leg slightly bent, bend forward. Return to the starting position. Do all your reps before switching sides.
Bend forward as far as possible without rounding your back.





  Tip: Bend forward as far as possible without rounding your back.



Stand holding a barbell in front of your shoulders. Dip slightly and then in a single motion straighten your legs and push the weight overhead. When your arms are almost fully extended, widen your base and bend your knees. Return to the starting position.





  Tip: Hold the bar with an overhand grip (palms forward).
