The 7 Minute Muscle-Building Workout


We'd all look like Matthew McConaughey if we had the time, wouldn't we? It's the only thing separating us from unleashing our inner adonis. Well, that and all the pizza.

Check out the graphic below for guidance, and head to the NYT blog to run their app which guides you through the process in real time (second workout down).
