Ride More Efficiently

Practice cycling one-legged to ride more efficiently. This forces you to concentrate on pulling up at the bottom of the stroke, which better distributes the work among the major leg muscles. Lock both feet on your pedals, but let your left leg go limp while you do all the work with your right leg. Do this for 30 seconds, then switch legs. Ride normally for 5 minutes, then repeat the drill. Continue this way for a 20- to 30-minute workout.

Ditch the Weight Belt

Don't train with a weight belt. Over time, regular training in a weight belt actually weakens your abdominal and lower-back muscles. Wear it only when attempting maximal lifts in such exercises as squats, deadlifts, and overhead presses.

Pick Up Your Pace

Increase the speed of your running strides—not their length—to get faster.
Your foot should always land under your body, rather than out in front of it,
and you should push off with the toes of your rear leg for propulsion.

Heal Faster

Don't exercise when you're sick—unless your symptoms are above the neck.
And even then you might do better taking a day off. Your body will use its
resources to heal itself, not build muscle and endurance.

Build Big Biceps

Bend your wrists to work your biceps harder. That is, extend them
backward slightly—and hold them that way—while you do arm curls.
