I'm encouraging my clients to add an extra walk, swim, weight lifting session or workout each week in May to help ready them for summer. For many of us, it's been a long winter, and diving into our favorite summer activities isn't as easy as it was when we last did them in August. I think May is a great time to put in a little extra effort, so you are ready for summer.
To help you get started, here's a quick workout you can do in 20-minutes or less.
Before you get started, make sure you do a dynamic warm-up. If you don't have a regular warm-up sequence you follow, check this one out.
Do as many rounds of this circuit as possible in 10 minutes.
30 Speed Skaters - 15 per side
10 Tricep Dips on the chair or ground
10 Shoulder Taps per side while planking
10 Superman (hold the last one for 5-10 seconds)
10-20 Side-Lying Leg Lifts against the wall. Make sure your back and bottom are flat against the wall. Your heel/leg will slide up along the wall and then go back down. Switch to the other side.
Repeat Circuit 2 one more time.
