This workout from trainer Andy Speer, creator of the Men’s Health Anarchy Abs workout program, is all about the burn. The circuit of pushups and planks in shown in the video above will blast your triceps and your core. The high volume will not only build muscle, but supercharge your metabolism.
Directions: Perform the exercises in the order listed for one minute each.
1. Do as many close-grip pushups as you can in 60 seconds. With your hands this close together (your thumbs and index fingers should form a triangle), you’ll smoke your triceps and also put less stress on your shoulders, which is important for avoiding overuse injuries.
2. Hold the hollow-body diamond plank for 60 seconds. Get into a close-grip pushup plank position, and round your back so your core is hollowed out. Your abs and even your triceps will feel the burn.
That’s one round. Do 3 to 5 rounds to reap this workout’s maximum benefits.
