THE COACH Mishal Dasani
THE PLAN ‘Instead of reps, doing each exercise for time will help you focus on good form,’ says Dasani. ‘Only add weight plates to the bar if your form is good and you find it too easy.’
WEEK 1 SETS 3 TIME 30SEC REST 90SEC
WEEK 2 SETS 3 TIME 30SEC REST 60SEC
WEEK 3 SETS 3 TIME 45SEC REST 90SEC
WEEK 4 SETS 3 TIME 45SEC REST 60SEC
If your gym vocab needs a reboot, landmines – slightly distastefully – are those swivelling things for slotting a bar into, lurking in the corners of your gym. Haven’t got one? Angle a barbell into a corner
September 2015 or a weight plate on the floor and execute these moves back to back to build a lean physique in minutes.
‘You use your whole body during this short, intense workout, and it’ll flood your body with growth hormone,’ says Mishal Dasani of Own Your Fitness (ownyourfitness.co.uk). This combo is perfect if you want rapid fat loss and improved muscle growth. Use Dasani’s four-week plan (above) to plot your fat-burning assault. Angle a barbell into a heavy weight plate on the floor. Squat and grasp the bar with both hands. Drive up, pulling the bar up quickly. As the bar passes chest height, drop under it and catch it with your elbows tucked in to your body.
