Isolate and Grow

Exercise one arm at time. Do a set of shoulder presses with your left arm,
then do a set with your right. You'll get higher-quality sets than if you work
both arms at the same time.

Save Your Neck

When doing squats, rest the bar so that as much of it as possible is
touching your shoulders. Holding it only on your lower neck causes
the entire weight to compress your spine, which can lead to spinal and muscle injuries.

Get Up Faster

To mountain-bike uphill faster, edge forward in the saddle to
distribute your weight more evenly between the front and rear
wheels. If you slip back too far, you'll cause the front wheel to
skitter off the ground. If you lean too far forward, you'll lose
traction on the back tire.

Have a great weekend!

Build Sprint Muscles

To sprint faster, work your hamstrings. They help you push off
and develop speed. Try this variation of the leg curl: Pull the weight
toward you with your ankles flexed (as you normally would) so that
your toes are pointing toward your shins. But when you lower the
weight, extend your ankles so that your toes are pointing away from
your shins. Your hamstrings will work harder than with the traditional version of the exercise.

Stay Healthy

If you're not exercising at all, just try to fit in two 20-minute
aerobic or weight-training sessions a week. Researchers at
Oklahoma State University examined absentee records of 79,000
workers at 250 sites and found that those who did this minimal
amount of exercise had fewer sick days than those who didn't exercise at all.
