Summer will be here before you know it and we hope you know how important it is to avoid crash dieting and extreme workouts in order to get in shape! The faster you try to lose the weight, the faster it will come right back. So don’t wait, start today and get in shape for summer the healthy way.

  1. SIDE-TO-SIDE PUSH-UPS

 

 

 

We’re all familiar with push-ups (which are a great exercise!). But let’s mix it up a bit with this side-to-side variation.

 

 

 

 

 

  1. HIGH PLANK LEG LIFTS

 

 

 

 

As with all plank variations, you’re really working your core here. But with the leg lift, you’re giving that booty some extra love as well.

 

 

 

  1. HIGH PLANK KNEE-TO-ELBOW

 

 

This is one of my favorite moves for a strong core and tight abs. Bringing that knee to the elbow really works the sides of your waist (your obliques).

 

 

 

 

 

  1. MOUNTAIN CLIMBERS

 

 

Burn baby, burn! This move is awesome for the abs and really kicks up the fat-burning cardio!

 

 

 

  1. SUPERMAN PULL

 

 

A strong back looks good and feels good! And don’t forget that the lower back is part of a strong core.

 

 

 

  1. SIDE LUNGES

 

 

Lunges in general work a lot of muscles resulting in more calories burned! These side lunges work your glutes, quadriceps, adductors, abductors, hamstrings, calves, and your core.

 

 

  1. CURTSY LUNGES

 

 

 

Lunges of all sorts are amazing for strong legs and a nice butt. A curtsy lunge is a great variation to really build a strong booty!

 

 

 

 

  1. JUMP SQUATS

 

 

 

Leg strengthening and cardio in one movement! This exercise finds its way into all my leg circuits.

 

 

 

  1. INCHWORMS

 

 

Inchworms are a great move for flexibility through the backs of the legs as well as for core and upper body strength.

 

  1. TRICEPS DIP

 

 

 

And for those backs of the arms that everyone always complains about, triceps dips are the answer!

 

 

 

 

GET IN SHAPE FOR SUMMER!
