→ The Weights-Free Workout from Valet
Want an ideal body? The gym isn’t always the best place to achieve it. You see, most health clubs are filled with complicated machines that are not only intimidating, but designed to target and isolate individual muscles. That’s fine if you’re simply looking for bigger biceps, but our muscles were designed to work in groups. Work them together, and you’ll develop a naturally derived physique that’s athletic and strong. It’s a philosophy Lashawn Martin, a British-born personal trainer and owner of Envys Fitness in Los Angeles, believes in. A competitive athlete who’s been playing rugby for 14 years, he says you don’t need a lot of machines or even dumbbells to get yourself in shape. Here, he shares six essential body-weight exercises that work your upper and lower body while strengthening your core.
