5 Min Daily Exercise ALL Men Should Do For….

For general fitness—which means you’re not a competitive powerlifter or weightlifter—the goblet box squat is king. Period.
They are about as functional as it gets—loaded standing to sitting to standing. They are easy on the back and knees, but hard on the glutes and core.
Sitting down on a box also standardizes your squat depth. You can adjust the height of the box based on your mobility and injury history.
Front-loading the weight autocorrects your squatting form because it forces you to stay more upright and better load your hips and thighs.
You can progressively overload the move in small 5-pound increments. This micro-progression produces pain-free gains that last. It’s also a self-limiting exercise because you can only use a weight that you can actually pick up and hold.The dead-stop pushup is the Men’s Health-approved way to learn and test the pushup.
By stopping and resting at the bottom with your full body in contact with the floor, you eliminate the stretch reflex (or the slingshot-like quality of your muscles and connective tissues). This makes your muscles work way harder than usual.
Plus, it’s the best way I know of to teach you how to create total body tension from head to toe.
You must create tension in your thighs, hips, and trunk to come up off of the ground otherwise your hips will sag and your body will collapse. Think of this like working on your planking in a much more fun and dynamic way than just planking.
