AB­SO­LUTE STRENGTH

Men's Health (UK) - - Mh Event -

For the next three weeks, your goal is very sim­ple: to get strong. Work with 85-95% of your one-rep max, keep the reps low and per­form this work­out three times a week. Train­ing like an ath­lete means tough­ing it out

01 TRAP- BAR DEAD­LIFT 5 SETS OF 5 REPS

Stand­ing inside the trap-bar (also known as a hex-bar), bend at the hips and grab the bar with your palms fac­ing in, arms straight ( A). Keep your back flat and stand up by driv­ing your hips for­ward ( B) – this will build strength in your legs. Hold for one count, then lower. Move on with no rest.

02 PALLOF PRESS 5 SETS OF 8 REPS

Fix a re­sis­tance band to a pole, stand side on and take a large step away, hold­ing the band at your chest. Press your arms straight in front of your body to feel the ten­sion in your obliques ( A). Hold, then slowly re­turn the band to your chest ( B). Rest two min­utes be­fore go­ing back to the dead­lifts.
