NEW CHAPTERS… I’m sure we’re all ready to see the backside of all the political adverts that have been clogging up the airwaves and street poles over the past couple of weeks. As much as we may not be looking forward to the queues at the voting stations I can’t help but reflect on what an election represents, the possibility of something new. There is a certain feeling of excitement about the uncertainty of something new, the unknown, the journey you’re about to embark upon, be it a new relationship, that job you’ve always wanted, maybe it’s a new form of working out that you haven’t done before, but there are new opportunities and chances to write more chapters in our own autobiographies whenever we look for them. It’s also incredibly…

20-minute fat blaster

NO TIME FOR A FULL WORKOUT TODAY? Squeeze in this fast and furious fat blaster, designed to work every major muscle while burning mega calories. “Every move here is explosive—you’re working different muscle groups in a variety of directions for optimum conditioning,” explains New York–based trainer Holly Rilinger. Do each move for 30 seconds, resting as little as possible (up to 10 seconds) between each one. “Because you’re rotating between lower body, upper body, and core moves you’re already getting rest, so you can keep downtime to a minimum,” adds Rilinger. Complete as many rounds as you can for 20 minutes. Team MuscleMeds shows us how it’s done. 1. SQUAT JUMP FOCUS: LOWER BODY › Stand with feet hip-distance apart, elbows bent, with hands in front of body. Squat down, keeping weight over…

30-day plank challenge

VERY FEW CORE WORKOUTS are complete without adding at least one or two plank variations into the routine. If you’re like most exercisers, you’ve already done your fair share of this foundational movement. “Planks offer a safe, challenging, and effective way to train both the core and many other muscles, including the shoulders, pectorals, biceps, triceps, glutes, quads, hamstrings, and more!” says Jennifer DeCurtins, a personal trainer, CrossFit coach, and yoga teacher. To make the plank even better, add in movement, balancing elements, and weights. “In my mind, a plank is anything that includes a straight line from your shoulders to your knees,” says DeCurtins, who put together 101 of her favourite variations of the move in her new book, Ultimate Plank Fitness. “Beyond that, you can think out of the…
