In addition to what we will assume to be a battery of regular workouts and strict diet, you can also benefit from the occasional quick pump routine that fills out muscle bellies and generally gives you a tighter look.

This upper body/abdominal circuit is a great workout for targeting your core, chest, back, triceps, and shoulders – all of which happen to be physique gold any time you go shirtless. If you are strapped for time, this workout will target a majority of the upper body with no equipment needed while still building muscle.

The cornerstone of this routine, which consist of mostly familiar moves, is the hand-to-thigh plank. This exercise is performed by positioning your hands and feet at shoulder width apart, arms at full extension, just as you would in the top of a push-up. While keeping your body straight and core tight, you will bring one arm at a time into slap your same-side thigh. Alternate hand slaps on each side being careful not to sway or drop your hips.

Door-to-door, this workout should cost you 20 minutes – a worthy investment for turning a few heads at your next clothing-optional engagement.
