Build up­per-body strength at home

Stop the presses: there are bet­ter ways to stay in shape. ‘You need a ses­sion that strength­ens the chest, shoul­ders and arms equally to build func­tional strength as well as mus­cle,’ says strength coach Andy McKen­zie (iron­mac­fit­ness.com). ‘This ses­sion does that and in­te­grates the core.’ So you’ll build a six-pack and your chest.
