20 Total-Body Workouts, in Five Moves (or Less)

You know those workouts that seemingly combine every kind of exercise and piece of equipment in the gym? You won’t find any of those here. That’s because you don’t need a bunch of tools, time, or moves to target every muscle and burn serious calories. We asked some of the country’s top trainers to design total-body routines that hit these requirements: fewer than two pieces of equipment, under 40 minutes, and no more than five exercises. What we got are the workouts that we want to do: They’re all fun, fast, and effective. The post 20 Total-Body Workouts, in Five Moves (or Less) appeared first on Men's Journal.

If your workout is due for an overhaul, you may want to look for the coils of rope sitting in a corner of your gym.

How Scott Eastwood Stayed Shredded for ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’

With movie star good-looks and roles in two larger-than-life franchises, Scott Eastwood is not exactly a person you’d ever pity; adding insult to injury, he’s in better shape than ever—and does it without a complaint. From a cop to a bull rider (and back to a cop), Eastwood has often played the roles of law enforcement officers and lieutenants, requiring a strong, sturdy physicality to match (and one hell of a workout plan).

11 Foods You Should Never Feed Your Kids

Any dad knows that feeding kids can be a huge headache. Whether you’re squeezing in supper before soccer practice, packing lunches before sunup, or just coaxing a picky eater to put something in her mouth, it’s often much easier to give kids quick, convenient (and, yes, unhealthy foods) rather than nutritious meals.
