2019 - Get Fit Before Summer!

Tuesday, February 19, 2019

It’s still cold outside. It seems like it constantly dark and gloomy and if you’re like me it’s hard to stay motivated. That’s why this is the perfect time to start thinking about summer. Start envisioning warm summer days sitting by the pool or on a beach getting a sun tan! There’s no time like the present to start working on that summer body.

If you read my last blog. I talked about the components every training program should have. Let’s put some of those into practice. Here’s some real easy circuits you can do almost anywhere that will give you quick results! Each program along with the warm up and finisher should take you about 30 minutes total. Both program A and program B are designed to work your entire body. You can alternate these as often as you want. Meaning… you could do program A on Monday, program B on Tuesday, back to program A on Thursday, and back to program B on Friday. That would give you 4 days of working out for at least 30 minutes! Or, you can alternate them on days that work for you. There’s no right or wrong here. Just stay active and try to get as many activity days as you can. Have fun!

Program A

40 secs of work / 20 secs of rest
After 1 set of each, rest 1 min.
Repeat series 5 times

After 5 sets finish with plank Tabata (2:05).

Download a Tabata Timer and use the 20 seconds of work, 10 seconds of rest (20/10) setting for 4 mins total.

Program B

40 secs of work / 20 secs of rest
After 1 set of each, rest 1 min.
Repeat series 5 times

After 5 sets finish with plank Tabata 360.

Use the same Tabata timer with the 20/10 setting for 4 minutes.

Plank Tabata 360 is as follows:

Done!
