Different rowing positions to minimize boredom and maximize results (for beginners)
Quick workout idea | Stand at the bottom of a flight of stairs, and do superfast step-ups. Leading with the same leg, step up and down a single stair 30 times; switch legs and repeat. Then do 10 incline push-ups with your hands on the stairs. Repeat this three-minute cycle five times. #SelfMagazine
