Hi Dolls!

Summer is here and in full effect and we are all trying to get that summer bod now that we are shedding our winter coats.

We want everyone to know that whatever shape you are in is perfect for the summer! It's so important to love the skin you are in even when trying to improve. 

Working out doesn't always have to be at the gym! We have a few moves in a 20 minute workout for the days you just can't get to the gym.

Trust us this 20 minute workout will make you feel a lot less guilty from totally skipping the gym!

_______

1.) Jump Squats - 30 reps


For toning up those legs and booty. 

Begin the squat by bending your knees once lowered you innate the jump and, jump as high as you can!

A few of those will really give a great burn.

________

2.) Plank - 3 reps of 30 seconds 




Planks are killer for your abs!

Start in push up position lower your forearms to the floor with elbows positioned under your shoulders and your hands shoulder-width apart.

Start holding at 30 seconds and everyday add more time on. Try and see how long you can hold after a weeks time. You'd be surprised with yourself at how strong you're getting.

______

3.) Chair Dips - 3 reps of 10



Perfect for toning up your triceps

Sit on the edge of a sturdy, stable chair with legs together, knees bent and feet flat on floor a few feet in front of chair.

Place your hands about six inches apart, and firmly grip the edges of the chair. Slide your butt just off the front of the chair so that your upper body is pointing straight down. Keep your abdominals pulled in and your head centered between your shoulders. Bend your elbows and lower your body in a straight line.

When your upper arms are parallel to the floor, push yourself back up, being careful not to lock elbows

4.) Reverse Lunges - 20 on each leg



Great for toning legs.

Take a large step backward with your left foot

 Lower your hips so that your right thigh (front leg) becomes parallel to the floor with your right knee positioned directly over your ankle.
Your left knee should be bent at a 90-degree angle and pointing toward the floor with your left heel lifted.


 Return to standing by pressing your right heel into the floor and bringing your left leg forward to complete one rep.


Alternate legs, and step back with right leg.

5.) Burpees - 30



Burpees are great for everything arms, legs, back chest core you name it!

The classic burpee is a four-point move. From a standing position, drop into a squat with your hands on the ground just in front of your feet.

Then kick your feet back behind you, keeping your arms extended so you are in a raised plank position. At this stage you press up.
