What’s the one exercise you can’t live without? We tossed that question to 92Y May Center personal trainer Jake Allyne and he demonstrated a movement he calls “Hi Definition.”
Performing one Hi-Definition as shown in the chart above means you’ve completed a squat, a curl, a squat-thrust, 10 mountain climbers, a high lunge on each leg and a push-up while never allowing your two dumbbells to leave your hands. You just might have a legitimate shot at being fit for life if you did three sets of ten Hi-Defs three times a week.
Jake’s got you covered if you can’t perform Hi-Defs right away. A photo album of prerequisite exercises can be found on the May Center’s Facebook page. While you’re there, take a look at the Abs by Jake series and get some ideas for putting higher definition on your six-pack.
