Now I know what you guys are thinking no,I do not live at the beach. I'm just at the beach, enjoying a beautiful day and obviouslyyou guys are going to see this workout, you can see that you can do it absolutely anywhere.So I thought it'd be cool to show you guys this cool, little pullup bar section we haveon Manhattan Beach, California and all you really need to do this entire workout is oneof those doorwide pullup bars. This is the onetwoblast. Almost every singlemuscle group in your entire body I'm going

to show you all the exercises in a row, butideally what you want to do is three sets of everything and you guys will be completelyfatigued. This is an incredible musclebuilding routine, so let me go right into it. So first up, I'm going to do these UnderhandClose Grip PullUps and what this is going to do is this is going to work our lats, ourbiceps, and also our upper and midback. Keep it slow and controlled. And that's how that looks. Now we're goingto go right into Diamond PushUps, so we're going to put our hands like this, we're goingto be working upper chest and our triceps.

And that's how that looks. Now we're goingright into Wide Grip Pullups one of the most challenging back exercises that's goingto hit our lats, hit our back as well our biceps. So I'm just going to put my handsabout as wide as I go. And that's how the wide grip pullups look.Now next, we are going to do what I call Maximum Time Under Tension PushUps. So what you'regoing to do is you're going to do a bunch of pushups in a row to complete muscle failure,and you want to keep the muscle under tension the entire time. So here's how it looks. So never do this keep it under tension theentire time like I'm doing right now.

And you guys get the idea. So that is goingto blast your entire chest. You're going to feel it in your arms everywhere. Next up,we got one of my favorite beach body exercises, and this is going to hit your biceps, alsoreally hit your abs. So what you're going to do is you're going to go on an underhandgrip, hold this position here, and you're going to bring your knees to your elbows. And that's how that looks. Last but not least, got to get our lower bodyinvolved, so we're going to do a good, oldfashioned wall sit. This is one of the most challenginglower body exercises that almost nobody does.

So what you're going to do here get downto about 90 degrees, and you're just going to hold this position. You're going to feelit in your hip flexors, your thighs, your hamstrings you're going to feel it all over. You got to control your breathing. And that's how that looks. That is a complete,fullbody, athome workout or atthebeach workout that you guys can do anywhere withjust a pullup bar.

COMPLETE Back Workout Width Density Strength

What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. I just finished a new back workout and I figured,you know, this could be helpful if I could somehow retrace my steps, put it on tutorialhere for you guys so that you can learn and see from just oneexample of an ATHLEANX type training tutorial and workout, how you can benefit much morethan you might be benefitting now. And it all starts with the mindset when yougo into your workout. First of all, I broke this workout down into zones. I tried to bevery focused on an upper back zone and a mid to lower back zone. And when I saylow back, I think that might be the most important

zone that we're talking about because an underdevelopedlow back, or a low back that doesn't get paid attentionto in your major back workout, is going to undermine your ability to perform at yourbest through all of your other back exercises. It's going to sap away all of your potentialstrength that you could be building on your big back exercises. So, I find a way to incorporateit into the workout itself so there's never an excuse of, 'Oh I don't have enough time to incorporateit, or I just didn't have enough time if I had to choose one or the other, I'm goingfor the big, wide lats and upper back, and

skipping the low back.' So, as I take you through, watch what we do,.First of all, we target the mid back. And with the mid back, the first exercise up isa classic Lat Pull Down. Again, here, we're working on sort of thewidth or the V Taper of the lats. And we do that by performing 34 sets, heavy, as heavyas I can control. Remember, it's not about momentum but controllingthe reps. We move on from there to one of my favorite exercises, the Barbell Dead Row. This is just a classic power exercise startingfrom the ground up. It's a combination of

a Row, it's a combination of a Deadlift. The Barbell Dead Row is an awesome way tobuild back strength, but look at the key focus here. Look at the positioning of the low back. If the low back is not strong enough, canyou see what would happen to your ability to actually lift heavy weights on the exerciseitselfé You're going to be limited. So, we want to make sure that we're workingour low back and we're going to do that here in this indirect way, but watch more importantlywhere we go from here. Once I'm done with those reps and sets, Igo to the next exercise which is over at a

Hyperextension machine. Here I'm demonstratingon a Glut Hand Raise, and we do a Static Hold, and we do a Y Raise.And the Y Raise is just basically the angle that I'm creating here with my arms in relationto the rest of my body. So, I'm basically forming a Y. And cautionhere. I'm not going very heavy at all, and you won't either. I'm using 5 pound plates.But i'm holding that Static V hold, and I'm working on that all important endurancefactor when it comes to the lower back. The muscles of the low back are postural in natureand are supposed to be able to hold you up, upright, with good posture, and withstandthe forces of those heavy back exercises when

you go to perform them. So we want to workon our ability to do that and work on our endurance. And it makes a whole hell of a big differencewhen we can do it. But we're not done. Now we've got to go to the Upper back portionof our exercise. Targeting that upper back zone. Zoning a weaker area than our midback doesn'tmean that we don't have to work on them. We probably have to work on it extra hard. So, the first exercise here, I go back tothe Row, but we change it a little bit. We


What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. An ATHLEAN XPRESS Tutorial for you. Taking youbehind the scenes once again. A leg workout. My leg workout. For those of you guys who don't know, I'vebeen dealing with some pretty bad leg issues my whole entire life. Having an athletic background, I pretty muchtrashed my knees back in, oh, I don't know, 1993 or so. And then never really recovered since, butI've still got to train my legs. And as all

athletes, we've got to find ways around ourailments. If you've got bad knees, figure out movesthat don't bother them so much because the moment you stop working your legs period isthe moment you've got nothing left at all because you're legs are going to anchor you throughevery single thing you do. I don't care what upper body workout you're doing. You better have your legs underneath you.So, that being said, I'll take you through my workout.

What I did here was, I start off with my squats,of course, always. But I do something a little bit unique for me. I do an isometric hold, I start down at 135.My goal here is to literally just try to hold this for about 20 seconds if I can. and I'm just trying to build up some realgood stability to feel like I have a good foundation because again, every time I approach my leg workouts, I neverknow what I'm going to get whether my knees are really marking or if they feel prettygood on a certain day.

I've got to test it, and I usually do thatright here with this isometric squat hold. Today, they felt pretty damn good so I movedup to 225. And again, I'm not looking to push heavy,heavy weight like I used to guys. For me, it's all about stability and strength, and to be able to hold my own body in thepositions I know I'm going to need them in. And for an athlete, that's going to be waydown deep in this squat position. And we'll do it here with pause squats with225. Ultimately, I work my way up to around 350 and again, I'm going for pause squatshere.

I've got to make sure that my legs alwaysfeel good, I always feel in control of what I'm doing because I've had too many issuesin the past. Secondly, probably my alltime favorite andhere, I'm actually able to load up on it because I found a version of the Lunge that does nothurt my knees. and that is here in the Reverse Lunge. I liketo do it with a barbell. I feel like I'm moving bigger weights, and I don't have to worryabout, necessarily, my grip giving out. So, I load up 225 and I go into Reverse Lunge.Again, I'll do that and I'll move onto my, and I say 'my alltime favorite', this mightbe my alltime favorite.

Again, for an athletic carryover, I love theDumbbell Bulgarian Split Squat, and here I'll try to load up and do something a little bitunique. Again, this position, I don't feel a lot ofpain in my knees because my weight is traveling down and back. Any time I try to move my weight down andforward as I move with a forwardstepping lunge, it bothers me. But if I can go backwards, as I do in a BulgarianSplit Squat, I don't really feel the pain so much.
