Ladies, summer is coming… Get beach-ready in no time with this fat-burning, full body workout!

 

Part 1: Cardio-Session

You don't need to hit the gym for hours in order to burn fat. In fact, shorter, high-intensity routines can be more effective than longer, slow-paced ones. This interval program takes 30 minutes and can be done indoor or outdoor with your favorite cardio activity (running, cycling, cross-training).

 

0:00 to 4:00 minutes

Warm up (You’re breathing comfortably)

 

4:00 to 5:00

Increase intensity (You’re breathing hard)

 

5:00 to 7:00

Lower intensity (You could hold a conversation with slight effort)

 

7:00 to 28:00

Repeat the interval sequences, doing 1 minute of high intensity followed by 2 minutes of recovery

 

28:00 to 30:00

Cool down (You’re breathing comfortably)

 

Part 2: Strength

Do the exercises in each workout as sets with 12 reps. For example, you'll do one set of mountain climbers, rest, do a second set, rest, do the third set. Then, move on to the next exercise. Make sure to choose a weight that is heavy enough (the last two reps of every set should be extra hard). Ready? Let’s go!
