Watch the video for demonstrations of beginner, intermediate, and advanced versions of each stretch. You can do all of these at home, in a hotel room, or in a gym. (And by…

First Sharpen, Then Cut

By | Exercise and Workouts

For this one, a simple bodyweight workout: run a mile as fast as you can. The catch — you’ll stop every sixty seconds and do a set of air squats. The clock continues, though, so you’ll need to get through the squats as quickly as possible and get back to your run.
