Day One

Add these to your chest-shoulder routine

Hang Power Clean

FITNESS5                             FITNESS6

Start out by holding a bar in front of your quads. Using your legs and hips, jump the weight to your shoulders. Do five sets of three reps at 80 percent of your maximum weight load.

Dumbbell Bench Press


Lie down on a bench with your feet touching the ground. Position the dumbbells at either side of your chest, with your arms bent. Focus on keeping your shoulder blades back and down for a slow, controlled movement. Do five sets of five reps at your max weight.

Day Two

Add these to your squat and abs routines

Bulgarian Split Squat


Stand a few feet in front of a bench. Lift one leg behind you so your toes are on the bench. Lower your body as if you were doing a regular squat, and make sure to keep your heel flat. Do five sets of five reps for each leg.

Front Plank


Lie on your stomach with your arms tucked at your sides. Keep your legs straight and tuck in your toes. With palms down and your core rigid, lift your torso and thighs up. Face the floor and hold for 30 seconds. Do four sets regularly for quick results.
