I LOVE an exercise that gives me a full upper body workout, core benefits & even cardio – all in one exercise. And this exercise certainly fits the bill. The combination of a row, pushup, shoulder press & burpee provide a true circuit busting exercise!
And don’t let it’s alternate name fool you – this exercise is sometimes called a “man maker”, but as you can see here it’s appropriate for anyone who wants a great upper body strength exercise.

TRAINER’S TIP: Choose a lighter weight than you would normally choose for a either a bent-over row or a shoulder press for this exercise. Because the exercise combines so many elements, you’ll work harder even without the heavy weights.
