Ripped abs and bulging biceps are great T-shirt muscles, but they won’t turn any heads when you’re in a suit or coat. Broad shoulders, on the other hand, can stand out from beneath even the chunkiest sweaters and overcoats and arguably do more than any other muscle to bolster your physical presence. Studies have also shown that women are most drawn to men whose shoulders measure 1.6 times the size of their waist. One way to build a ripped torso that's wide on top and narrow at the bottom is to do shoulder exercises.
How it works: The 28 method is 4 sets of 7 reps of the same exercises with no rest in between. Each set is a tweak of the speed or range of motion of an exercise to challenge your muscles in new ways. For your 28 reps, go 7 slow reps -> 7 fast reps -> 7 bottom-half reps -> 7 top-half reps.
