Natural Male Enhancement

There's no better place to slay your butt, blast your legs, shred your abs, or trim some fat than The Daily Hiit.  But guys like me need more, and by "more" I don't mean a thigh gap. We need specific exercises to help us look less like an emaciated marathoner and more like a V-shaped, broad-shouldered superhero.  And we want to attain our superpowers without steroids that shrink our balls to the size of raisins. To solve this problem, I add some natural male enhancements to my Daily Hiit workouts several days a week based in part on a training program for Superman revealed in Muscle & Fitness (July 2013).  I do them on an as-needed basis and thought I should share them with you. Here they are, in no particular order: Shoulders
  • Isometric Dumbbell Hold (2 sets):  Hold dumbbells to the side with straight arms as long as possible, pulling your shoulder blades down and together.
  • Dumbbell Breaststroke (3 sets; 12 reps):  Lie face-down on a mat, bench or platform holding a dumbbell in each hand.  Lift them up and out in front of you like Superman.  Then move them back like you're doing a breaststroke, pulling your head back, shoulders down, and shoulder blades together.
  • Dumbbell Lateral Raise (3-4 sets; 10 reps).
  • Military Press (6 sets; 10-12 reps):  Use dumbbells, a bar, or a sandbag.
  • Dumbbell Snatch (3-4 sets; 6-8 reps each side).  Hold the dumbbell like a kettle bell and swing it up in front of you, using one arm or both arms.
  • Half-Arnold Press (3 sets; 12 reps):  If you don't know what a half-Arnold press is, Google it.  It's easy.
  • Rear Shoulder Pull-Back (3 sets; 12 reps):  Bend over with your back straight and knees bent.  Pull the dumbbells back while bringing your shoulder blades together.  You do these seated or standing, whichever you prefer.
  • Wide-Grip, Chin-to-Hand Pullup (3 sets; 5 each side):  Use a Lebert Equalizer or standard pullup bar.
  • Superman (1 set; no weights):  Lie face-down on a mat and your arms extended.  Lift your arms and legs up for 15 seconds; then pull your arms back to the breaststroke position, with your head up, for 15 seconds; then lock your hands behind you, pulling your head, shoulders and legs up as much as possible for 15 seconds; and then return to the breaststroke position for 10 seconds.  Finish in the classic Superman position for 15 more seconds.
  • Deadlift (3 sets; 10 reps):  Use a sandbag, dumbbells, or bar, and keep your back straight.
  • Lawnmower or Plank + Twist (3 sets; 10 reps each side):  Bring your shoulder blades together as you pull the dumbbell back during this move.

  • Dumbbell Swimmer's Fly (3 sets; 10 reps):  Lie face-up on a bench or step platform, if you have one.  If you don't know this move, Google it.
  • Perfect Pushup (3 sets, maximum reps):  Before each pushup, bring your shoulders down and shoulder blades together.  Keep your heals pointing straight up.
  • Wide-Grip Dip (3 sets; 15-20 reps):  Use an Ultimate Body Dip Station, Lebert Equalizer, or anything else that allows you to do dips with a wide grip.
  • Dumbbell Tricep Extension (2 sets; 10 reps):  Lie face-up on a mat, bench, or step platform.  Start with one dumbbell slightly above each ear.  Extend your arms.
  • Dumbbell Curl (3 sets; 10 reps):  Keep your shoulders down and shoulder blades together as you curl, if possible.  Experiment with different types of curls (e.g., Hammer Curls) based on your needs.
  • Bar Curl (3 sets; 10 reps):  Use a barbell or sandbag.  Keep your shoulders down and shoulder blades together, if you can.
I never hesitate to substitute other exercises for any of these, by the way, and neither should you.  We need muscle confusion for sustained growth, and we're making up the rules as we go.  But this list should get you off to a good start, as it has for me. And, while I could certainly suggest more natural male enhancements, The Daily Hiit already provides enough ab and lower-body routines to balance out your new, superhero physique.  So I hope you'll give some of these a try, keeping hitting it with me, and let me know how it goes.
