Guys: Here’s how to get a slender bod

Hilfiger Fall 2013

From suits to outerwear, slender cuts were all the rage in male designs at New York Fashion Week. If you want to bypass bulking up for a leaner bod, follow these tips from Will Torres, founder of NYC’s willspace fitness studio:

Jack-up the intensity. The best way to a ripped body is to give each workout your all, which doesn’t mean adding on plates. Push past your limits. If you’re used to doing 10 reps, do 15 instead.

Cut out the breaks. Constantly moving is essential. Don’t rest in-between sets — jump right into the next move to keep the body burning and building. Only take a break as needed to catch your breath. Play with the timing by using the stopwatch on your phone and time how long it takes you to do a workout. Try to beat your time during the next workout.

Work multiple muscle groups in one movement. The more muscles that are stimulated at the same time, the stronger and leaner you will be. Even though arm curls will get your biceps to burn, the impact to the entire system is very small. However, an exercise like squat to overhead press is going to have a more intensified effect on your muscle development and metabolism as a whole. The more muscles that are being challenged simultaneously, the more hormones that are released and the greater results you will see.

The Workout:
Move as quickly through this series as possible, only taking a break to catch your breath as needed. Begin with two rounds on the entire series and work your way up to doing it 3-4 times. Perform this workout 3-4 times per week.
