It engages just about every part of your anatomy, says Scott Rankin, CSCS, personal training director at Totum in Toronto. Do 12 reps, then get back to work.
- Grab a pair of lightweight dumbbells and get into a pushup position—arms straight and hands on weight handles directly under your shoulders.
- Do a pushup, Then, bring your feet underneath you, one at a time.
- Keeping your back flat, stand up. (This is a deadlift.)
- From the standing position, curl the weights up to your shoulders.
- Swing your elbows out to your sides so the weights are above your shoulders.
- Lower your body until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Pause, then stand up as you press the weights over your head. (This is a pushpress.) That's one rep. Return to the pushup position and repeat.
