Maximize your strength training routine by cutting out these time wasters.Read article
In the new August 2018 issue of Muscle & Fitness, you’ll find the training, lifestyle, and nutrition tips to stay summer shredded well into fall.
Our August cover star, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, clearly knows a thing or two about staying ripped year-round despite being one of the busiest men in Hollywood. He’s proven that his dedication to the gym—or, as he calls it, the Iron Paradise—never falters, even while he’s filming Blockbusters like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Rampage, or Skyscraper. If you’re willing to put the work in, follow the workout plan provided by The Rock’s trainer, Dave Rienzi, to build a Herculean physique like Johnson’s.
The August issue also includes a pair of strength-building, heart-pumping workouts that you can complete in 30 minutes or less with no more than a kettlebell. Even if you’ve only got 15 minutes to spare, you can use that time to make some gains.
