Start with 10 pushups, then rest 10 seconds, followed by 9 pushups, and rest 9 seconds. Continue with 8 pushups, and rest 8 seconds. Carry on until you work your way down to 1 pushup.
Set the incline control to 10. Sprint for 30 seconds at a 9 mile-per-hour pace, followed by 30 seconds of rest. Repeat 9 times.
Dumbbell curl with a static hold
Let a pair of dumbbells hang at arm’s length next to your sides, with your palms facing forward. Raise your forearm so your elbows are bent 90 degrees (without moving your upper arms) and hold them that way for the starting position. Now lower the dumbbell in your right hand until your arm is straight, then without moving your upper arm, curl the dumbbell toward your shoulder. Lower back to the starting position, then follow that same procedure with your left arm. That’s one rep. Do a total of 10 repetitions. For a tougher workout, continue to hold both dumbbells in the 90-degree position for an additional 10 seconds after your last rep.
On-the Road Workout
DIRECTIONS: Perform this body-weight circuit 3 days a week. Do 1 set of each exercise in succession, resting 30 seconds between exercises. After you’ve completed one circuit of all 10 exercises, rest for 2 minutes. Then repeat 2 to 3 more times.
- Squat Thrust (20 reps)
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Lower your body until your palms rest on the floor about shoulder-width apart. Kick your legs backward to a pushup position. Perform a pushup, and then quickly reverse the movement back to a squat. Immediately jump as high as you can. Land softly, and repeat.
- Explosive Pushup (15 reps)
Assume a pushup position, your hands slightly beyond shoulder width. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your head. Bend your elbows and lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor. Press yourself up with enough force that your hands leave the floor.
- Crouching Single-Leg Squat (15 reps each leg)
Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Raise your left foot off the floor, and then bend your left knee 90 degrees, and hold it that way. Without rounding your lower back, push your hips back, bend your right knee, and lower your body until your left knee almost touches the floor. Reach forward as you perform the squat. Once at the bottom, push yourself back up to the starting position and repeat. Do all your reps, switch legs, and repeat.
- Pullup (10 to 15 reps)
Grab a pullup bar with a shoulder-width overhand grip and hang at arm’s length. Pull your chest up to the bar. Lower back to the starting position and repeat.
- Split Jump (20 reps)
Stand in a staggered stance with your feet 2 to 3 feet apart, your right foot in front of your left. Keeping your torso upright, bend your legs and lower your body into a lunge. Now jump with enough force to propel both feet off the floor. While you’re in the air, scissor-kick your legs so you land with your left leg forward. That’s one rep. Repeat, alternating your forward leg for the duration of the set.
- TRX Atomic Pushup (15 reps)
Attach TRX suspension training straps to a secure object. Then place your feet in the straps and assume a pushup position with your hands just wider than shoulder-width apart. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your head. Now do a pushup, by bending your elbows and lower your body until your chest nearly touches the floor. Press back up, and without rounding your lower back, pull your knees toward your chest. Reverse the movement back to the starting position. That’s one rep. (You can also perform this exercise with your feet on a Swiss ball, instead of strapped into the TRX.)
- Single-Leg Hip Raise and Leg Curl (15 reps each leg)
Lie on your back with your left heel on a Swiss ball and hold your right leg in the air—so that it’s in line with your left thigh. Brace your core and hold it that way. Now squeeze your glutes and raise your hips off the floor until your body should forms a straight line from shoulders to knees. Then roll the ball toward your butt by bending your left knee and pulling the ball with your heel. Reverse the movement back to the starting position, and repeat.
- TRX Inverted Row (15 reps)
Attach TRX suspension training straps to a secure object. Grab the handles of the TRX and hang with your arms completely straight. Your hands should be positioned directly above your shoulders and heels touching the floor. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your head. Squeeze your shoulder blades as you bend your elbows and pull the handles to the sides of your chest. Pause, then lower back to the starting position.
- Plank Walkup to Pushup (10 reps)
Start to get into a pushup position, but bend your elbows and rest your weight on your forearms instead of your hands. Your body should form a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. Now brace your core by contracting your abs as if you’re about to be punched in the gut. Without allowing your body posture to change, place your left hand on the floor, then your right hand. Then push your body into the “up” position of a pushup. Lower back down into a pushup. Then one at a time, place each elbow on the floor again. That’s one rep. Alternate which palm you place on the floor first.
- Walking Plank (Move forward 75 to 150 feet)
Chesney performs this exercise with his feet strapped into a power wheel, which allows him to roll backward and forward on grass, concrete, or any other surface. But if you don’t have a power wheel, you can do it on a tile or wood floor using a pair of hand towels. Assume a pushup position on a tile or hardwood floor and place each foot on a hand towel. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your head. Brace your abdominals—as if you were about to be punched in the gut—and maintain that contraction for the duration of this exercise. Now simply “walk” forward with your hands. letting your feet slide on the floor behind you as move. The key: Don’t allow your hips to sag at any time. Walk forward for about 25 yards, and then walk the same distance backward.
