Here we go through some simple training methods that'll help get you in tip-top condition in no time at all.  And what's more, it won't cost you a penny!  

Let's face it, we all want to look good, especially during the hotter months of the year, but looking good takes a heck of a lot of effort and pain.  It's all very well for those folks who get a buzz from working out, but it's usually a different story for the rest of us mortals who find it difficult to find the time and energy to get into shape.

If truth be told, you don't actually need to spend money on gym memberships to get into shape.  You don't need to be a fan of sport either. All you need is to set aside 25 minutes, three days a week, and you're half way there.  

If you're looking to get that desirable Ryan Reynolds athletic but muscular physique, then we'll guide you through three parts of an easy to follow training problem that'll get you shredded in a matter of weeks! In the first part of our guide, we recommend trying these 5 simple exercises...

1. Press-Ups
There really is no substitute for doing press-ups. Your chest is the biggest muscle group in your body, and a good chest is the key to a good physique.  Bust out 25-40 full press-ups (whatever your maximum limit is), then drop to your knees and bust out 10-15 more (again, whatever your limit is), and then finish off on 10 mini press-ups for maximum burn.

2. Shoulder-Press
Good shoulders and upper chest are key factors to looking good, therefore shoulder exercises should be a key part of your training.  Get a couple of 5kg dumbbells and simply raise them from your shoulders to the sky. Bust out about 30-40 reps (whatever your limit is), then finish off on 10 mini-shoulder-presses for maximum burn.

3. Lateral Raise
Begin standing straight, arms down by your side holding the 5kg dumbbells. Then raise the dumbbells up so both your arms are horizontal. Repeat about 25-30 times (whatever your limit is). Good lats will make you look more athletic in clothes. 

4. Triceps Dips
Working out your triceps is a great way to finish off a set. Simply lean backwards against a solid standing table, dip your body down and then push up.  Try and bust out 40-50 of these in order to feel the full burn. 

5. Sit-Ups
There are literally millions of ways you can work your abs, so this is something that you will need to decide on yourself.  Remember though, a million sit-ups a day won't get you the six-back you desire. Working many other parts of your body will also benefit your stomach muscles. 

Repeat this cycle four times.  The workout should take you about 20 minutes.
