Six moves your workout is missing

It would be impossible for your workout to include every muscle-toning, calorie-torching move you've heard/seen/read about in your life - at the very least, it would be an incredibly long workout.

You don't have to ditch your existing gym routine; just sprinkle a couple into your existing workouts and see what happens.
