The incline pushup is a basic exercise that works the pecs, shoulders, triceps, and biceps. Pair it with a shoulder press and it becomes a game-changer, says Jeremy Scott, owner at Jeremy Scott Fitness.

The dumbbell neutral grip shoulder press works the medial and front delts. The difference in hand positioning from the standard dumbbell press makes the exercise easier on the shoulder joint as it doesn't require as much mobility. That makes it a great alternative for those with shoulder issues.

Supersetting these exercises will give you a massive pump. Because of the high volume of work, you won't need much weight. 10 to 25 pound dumbbells should get the job done.

Directions: Perform the exercises below in the order listed for 30 seconds each:

1a. Incline pushups

1b. Dumbbell neutral grip shoulder press

That's one round. Perform 5 total rounds no rest.
