Fitness with Charlie King

Let’s look at the shoulders. If you’re after that powerful looking physique, it’s time to get pressing and raising. Try adding a shoulder session into your weekly routine working the frontal, medial and posterior parts of the muscle group. You will be pleasantly surprised the shape it will give your upper body…

01. Shoulder press using dumbbells. Pressing is great as it works multiple muscles in the upper body and builds strength and definition. Start by grabbing your kettlebells – I opt for 16kg – and stand with feet shoulder width apart. Lift up to shoulder height one at a time, making sure that you rotate your wrists so that the palms of your hands are now facing forwards, and inhale. Your elbows should now be at a 90 degree angle. Drive the kettlebells up over the head, making them almost meet in the middle. Exhale as you drive up and hold for 1-2 seconds. Slowly lower back to the start position at 90 degrees and inhale. Repeat for 8-10 for 4 sets.

About Gay Times

It’s been 25 years since the National Theatre first staged Angels in America - the most important play to come out of the 20th century. In our world-exclusive interview and shoot with the cast of Angels in America, debuting at the National Theatre this July, we discuss the political and cultural parallels between then and now, the evergreen relevance of Angels in America and the importance of coming out and living with pride. Elsewhere, TOWIE’s Charlie King, who is also our resident fitness guru, gets you festival ready with a focus on upper body workouts, and James Haskell, former Gay Times cover star and international rugby icon, takes us through the new fitness craze, F45. Also, gay sex in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city; Steps take us through their 'gay-tastic' new album; homophobia in football; men who make money from men they barely know; Lucie Jones sticks her hand in our sweetie jar; Romy and Michele turns 20; Megan Mullaly on Karen Walker; and Todrick Hall on Broadway. The issue is packed - as usual - with opinion, travel, style and fitness.
