Shaun T's Killer Arm Workout Without Weights

Between INSANITY, MAX:30, Focus T25, The Asylum, Hip Hop Abs, and Rockin' Body, celebrity trainer Shaun T has a workout for pretty much anyone. But what he's best known for is getting results fast and without much equipment. (If you've tried his Tough New Insanity Workout, you know what we're talking about!)

Building a strong upper body might scream "dumbbells," but rest assured you can get a great arm workout without weights too. Shaun T served up his toughest no-equipment, upper-body moves so that you can build insanely strong arms, core, chest, and back muscles. That's right: This might technically be an arm workout, but the beauty of using just your bodyweight (a.k.a. calisthenics) means that other muscles usually get in on the party too. That means you'll be stronger all over as a result, stave off injury, and teach your body to work together to move efficiently.
