THE EXERCISES

More after the break

Pecs
“Take a wire in each hand, keeping your elbows rigid,” says Gerrard Finlayson, director of GF Fitness, “and cross your hands over. Return to the start position.”
 

Biceps
Sun’s out: guns out. How? “Do a seated curl with a dumbbell. Rotate your palm up to face your shoulder and lift slowly. Whatever you do, don’t ‘heave-ho’.”
 

Six-pack
“Do a hanging leg raise. Hang off a chin-up bar, elevate your knees and tuck them into your chest. Slowly return to the start. Go for four sets of 20 reps.”

Thighs
“Put a barbell on your shoulders. Turn your toes out to 30 degrees. Imagine a chair behind you, and sit down into it. Have your hips parallel with your knees.”
