Why it made the cut: This lift hits every muscle group from the hips, through the core, to the chest, shoulders and back. It also works balance, stability and muscular endurance. In short, it makes you a better athlete. By performing Push-Ups holding dumbbells, Jennings reduces the strain on his wrists. When he presses up, the extra weight challenges his back during the row, his shoulders during the reach and press, and his core and hips, which must stabilize his body as he rotates into the T position. Watch Brandon Jennings perform the DB Push-Up, Row, Reach Press above.
