Total Body Toning
Start the day with 20 minutes of cardio! You can always break this up through out the day as well — if you only have 10 minutes at a time, break it up into 2 mini workouts.
We’re throwing it back today with the Full Body Resistance Loop Workout. Complete the entire circuit 3 times through for an all over body burn!
Push Up Test!! – Do as many possible push ups as you can in one set — they can be on your knees, on your toes, or a combination. Just do as many as you can!
Arms & Abs
30 minutes of Cardio – Choose your favorite form of cardio and get that heart rate up for 30 minutes at a steady heart rate today.
We’re bringing sexy back with our Resistance Band Sexy Back Workout. Complete 3 rounds for a beautifully sculpted back that you will feel SO confident showing off this summer!
Finish the day with a little ab sculpting with your 5 Minute Pilates Abs — it’s super quick but those abs will be BURNING!
Hump Day Booty
20 Minutes of Cardio – Let’s work on some hills, stairs — or the Stairmaster!!! If you want an awesome stairmaster workout try this one — otherwise run up and down your stair or head to a park and get them in — your booty will thank you!
We got another Fit Girl Favorite — the Resistance Band Abs & Booty Routine will lift and tone that booty from all directions! Complete 3-4 rounds for a beautiful booty!
100 Squats – Anyway, anyhow! Do them all at once, or space them out throughout the day. Try some while you’re brushing your teeth, waiting for the microwave to beep, or as you waiting in line at the grocery store — who cares who’s watching — maybe you’ll inspire them to get moving! 😉
Yoga & Pilates
Start with 30 minutes of cardio — today, let’s do 5 minutes to warm up, 20 minutes of HARD work, followed by 5 minutes to cool down.
After working up a sweat — let’s slow it down with some Pilates. Today let’s bring it back to your Stability Ball Pilates workout — if you don’e have one try Beach Body Pilates! Remember to go slow and really focus on those muscles.
Complete the day with at least 15 minutes of yoga or stretching. You try the 15 minute Yoga Relaxation Stretch or the Full Body Stretch Routine if you need some ideas — or head to a local class or studio! :
Cardio & Arms
Get that heart rate up today with 30 minutes of Cardio. Today, let’s focus on some intervals! I love doing this Full Body Treadmill Workout to get some serious two-for-one cardio and toning — but you can also try doing 1 minute high intensity followed by 1 minute of moderate intensity.
After that serious sweat session, it’s time to work those Sexy Summer Arms. Complete 3 round for sleek, slender, and STRONG arms! 😉
Oh — and we’re not done with those arms yet! It’s time for some Push Up Practice! – Complete 3 rounds of 10 push ups — getting up on those toes as much as possible!
5k, Push Ups, & Abs
5k Run (or walk) or 10 Mile Bike Ride – Happy 5k Saturday! Get out there and get your sweat on ladies! Check your times and figure out how you can beat last weeks time. Make sure you hydrate before and get ready to CRUSH last weeks time! You got this!
Quick tummy toning after your run with Bikini Ready Abs!
Plank Practice! – Hold a plank for at least 30 seconds — that means you can do 1 plank for a 30 seconds or two planks for 15 seconds. We’re working up to a full minute!
Self Love Sunday
It’s time for a little pampering after a long week of workouts! Check in for the NEW All-Natural Bubble Bath Recipe posted on Monday!
Meal Prep Sunday – “Fail to plan, plan to fail” – Get in that meal prep mode today and set yourself up for a week of success! Cook up lots of yummy food for the week — and be sure to check back in for week 2!
