Phoenix

As our annual celebration of turkey and touchdowns draws near the online trainers of Phoenix Effect Joel Harrison and CJ Brenton present to you five intense exercises that are guaranteed to make you feel the burn in your core...possibly just from, co-watching.

I've been an ardent gym-goer at 3-5 workouts per week for the past 3 or 4 years, so I would argue that I'm in really good shape, but just watching these two in action with the acrobatic exercises they chose is enough to make me head back to the dinner table for a second helping of "Nope!"

Chris Pratt Explains the Importance of 'Nip Shadow' to a Good Shirtless Selfie: VIDEO

Pratt

Chris Pratt, aka the Selfie King, who has delighted viewers with his Greek physique, showing off his hard work prepping for roles in Zero Dark Thirty and also Guardians of the Galaxy, the trailer for which also makes good use of Pratt’s torso, shared some tips with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz on how to get the perfect selfie:

"It's important to gaze at your own image in the phone rather than make eye contact with yourself," said Pratt…Otherwise, you'll look "too self-aware.”

It has to look natural, almost like a mistake. Or as Pratt put it, "You just tripped, fell, and landed on some abs.”

Asked what was going through his head when taking his most recent selfie, Pratt said it was like "seeing the Loch Ness Monster captured on film. You may never see it again."

And the key to the art of the shirtless male selfie? "Nip shadow is a huge part.”

Learn more about the fine art of the selfie from Professor Pratt, AFTER THE JUMP…

Which of These Gym Stereotypes Are You? - VIDEO

Dude Perfect Gym Stereotypes Selfie

YouTube comedy group Dude Perfect have added to their "Stereotypes" series with "Stereotypes: Gym" and absolutely nails the different types of guys you see when you work out.

DpYou've seen them: "The No Idea What I'm Doing Guy" misusing every piece of equipment; "The Screamer" whose reps can be heard across the gym; "The Mirror Magnet" who spends more time posing than lifting; "Talkative Timmy" carrying on conversations with absolutely everyone.

Dude Perfect was thorough in their listing, however. Not only do they list the guys you've seen, they list the guys you've been. Personally, I've been "The Treadmill Sprinter" and "The Justifier" a few times...and even "The Sweaty Guy" once or twice. Oops.

See how many stereotypes you recognize — and how many you identify with — AFTER THE JUMP...
