After a day in the home office I come down to the basement gym.

In 15-20 minutes I can get an awesome workout that develops my relative strength off the charts.

Strength, stability, balance…it’s the full package and a lot of these are George F. Jowett-inspired.

Here we have the:

  1. Arms overhead side bend – 6-12 reps
  2. Pull up – 6-12 reps
  3. Standing dumbbell press – 9-18 reps
  4. *Curl – I missed this in the video – 9-18 reps
  5. Squat with overhead press – 9-18 reps
  6. Explosive alternating overhead press – 6-18 reps
  7. Swing/Snatch – treat as a finisher, huffing and puffing
  8. Leg raise 12-24 reps

All these exercises are done with full concentration and lighter weights.

A reminder that the Mighty Atom himself didn’t have dumbbells over 25 lbs. But that dude’s strength was outlandish.

Food for thought.

You can do this 3 times per week. Do some push ups and some rows to balance things out, if desired.

1 to 2 sets each of the above exercises would be sufficient.
