Complete Functional Fitness in 10 Moves
Speed. Power. Control. They’re the holy trinity of sports: the tools you need to succeed in your pickup basketball game, your weekly squash match, or your big week in Whistler.
Do the warm-up and 10 exercises three times a week. (They will only take about an hour.) Then, a month from now, see if your opponents don’t seem as if they’re wearing cement shoes.

The 30-Minute Bodyweight Workout
The key to bodyweight exercise is mixing it up. Challenge yourself. If you’re not sore the next day, you didn’t work out hard enough. “When you push yourself, you’ll be building muscle, increasing bone density, strengthening ligaments, and burning calories for up to 36 hours after your workout,” says Mark Lauren, author of ‘You Are Your Own Gym.’ When push-ups become too easy, switch to a different grip – wide, narrow, or staggered hands – or pause during the motion. Try one set on an incline, the next on a decline, and the next with one hand on a basketball. For all of the exercises below, aim for three sets of 10 reps unless noted otherwise. Time yourself and try to do them more quickly the next time around. If you can’t finish a set, complete it with the easier version.
