Are you as excited about the summer as I am?! With increasing temperatures I find myself increasingly longing for the sand, the waves, the water, and the sun! With a little determination and a lot of hard work you can be as stoked to go to the beach (or lake, or waterpark, or even backyard kiddie pool!) as my kiddos always ! Tone and Tighten’s “Summer Slim Down” is an 8-week series of workouts designed to have you ready for your favorite swimsuit. Welcome to week 2 where I’m presenting two more workouts – CARDIO for day one and STRENGTH for day two. Perform each workout 2-3 times this week (4-6 workouts total) and you’re well on your way to beautiful sunny and sandy fun! Let’s do it!
Presented below are two workouts, one for cardio and one for strength. Alternate each workout (day one cardio; next day strength) as you do each workout 2-3 times this week (4-6 days of workout total).
Beach ready in no time!
