Quick Workout to Get You Ready for Summer

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.

Circuit 1:

Do as many rounds of this circuit as possible in 10 minutes.

30 Speed Skaters - 15 per side

20 Elevated Bridges

10 Push-ups

Circuit 2:

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.
