  • The three- to four-minute workout consists of four basic exercises including squats, tin soldiers, snow angel and military press, which work all 16 of your major muscle groups
  • The Nitric Oxide Dump workout should ideally be done multiple times a day, but it’s important to wait at least two hours in between workouts for nitric oxide to synthesize in your body for subsequent release
  • A typical workout using this method entails three sets of 10 reps, but you can gradually work toward 20, focusing on form and speed, and when you’re ready, you can increase it over time
