Maxim to the Rescue

  Who says a magazine is only as good as it looks? Use your stack of maxim issues to get fitter. Who knows? Maybe 2013 is the year you’ll finally look like you should.




The Body Parts- Legs, Back, Chest  

The Move- The "Stash" Section Squat  

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, gripping about a two-kilo stack of maxim copies. (That’s about eight issues.) With your back upright, shoot your hips back and squat till your thighs are par­allel to the floor. Do three sets of 10 reps.

The Body Parts- Shoulders, Core, Arms  

The Move- The Logic Blocker 

With feet shoulder width apart, hold your maxims in front of you. Twist at the hips to one side and then the other. Do three sets of 10 reps. Now you’re ready to read, so go to school. Buy a pencil on the way (trust us, it makes studying easier!).
