Supersculpt Muscle

Myogenics may sound like a new life-extending freezing technique, but it’s actually an intense, 20-minute strength-training workout that gives the same results as hour-long routines. Developed by Hollywood trainer Chad Morris, the system features basic moves — push-ups, for example — but they’re done at a snail’s pace: at least 10 seconds up, 10 seconds down. There are no sets or reps; the goal is to keep going until your muscles literally give out. “Research shows that this very slow technique can build significantly more muscle in 10 weeks than regular training,” say Morris. But you’ll get more than stronger, sexier shape; all that extra muscle will rev your metabolism, too.
