Bench Blitz

Nine moves, one bench, total-body gains


Gyms, you will have noticed, have a di erent feel to them at the moment. Social distancing and the strong smell of sanitiser are now central to the weights-room experience, and gone are the days of hopping between di erent bits of equipment. Now, more than ever, it pays to plan your workouts and be smart with the kit you’re going to need. Which is why we’ve teamed up with Starks Fitness to bring you this one-bench session: find a bench, grab a barbell and a pair of dumbbells, and you’re good to go.


The workout is split into two blocks: 1a-1e and 2a-2d.

Complete the first block as a circuit, with 15 secs rest between moves.

Rest for 60-90 secs when you’ve completed the circuit, then repeat 3 more times.

Once you’ve completed the first block, move onto exercises 2a-2d and follow the same process.
