8 must-do moves for summer

Summertime means a change of seasons, yes — but it also means a change of wardrobe. If you’ve been slacking on your exercise and nutrition over the winter, it’s time to take charge before you attempt to shimmy into those short shorts and barely-there tanks.

These eight compound moves work multiple muscle groups at once, making each exercise that much more effective and time-efficient. Try the sample workouts provided, or insert these moves into your existing training schedule. Better yet, pair this workout with the 10-day getlean meal plan on Page 74 and you’re on your way to wardrobe nirvana.

SHAPE YOUR BODY FROM HEAD TO TOE WITH THESE SUPER_EFFECTIVE MOVES USING ONLY A SET OF DUMBBELLS AND YOUR OWN BODYWEIGHT.
