2013 Swimsuit in 6 Workout - 6 Exercises, 6 Weeks

It's that time of year again...swimsuit season is rapidly approaching. (YIKES!)  We've put together 6 exercises to help you look great by the unofficial start of Summer.  We ask that you do these exercises 3 days a week on non-consecutive days (working the same muscles 2 days in a row gets you no where fast).

Commit to 3 days a week for 6 weeks with these exercises and you will see changes!!  We will add options in for you to do in addition to the main exercises in future weeks.  We will keep it simple as people adhere better to an exercise program when it is not overwhelming.

Don't be afraid of the pool this year...start working now!!  This workout is all body weight exercise so you can do it anywhere.

Warm - Up
1 - 2 min march or jog
1 min drop step squats
30 sec plank walk
30 sec x-men jumping jacks
1 min standing oblique twists

*Swimsuit in 6 Workout 
1 min Pushup with 1/2 burpee
1 min Diagonal lunges
1 min Rolling plank

Rest 1-2 minutes

1 min Backward lunge with jump (switch legs at 30 secs)
1 min Side plank dips (switch sides at 30 secs)
1 min Mountain climbers

Rest 1 - 2 minutes
Repeat the circuit again at least one more time (if ready for it,  do a total of 3 sets)

When finished with the circuit, finish your abs off by seeing how long you can front plank.  By the end of 6 weeks, we expect it to be minutes!!!

*Reminder, if you are just beginning an exercise program you may need to take the modifications in the videos and/or reduce interval duration to 30 secs and work your way up to 1 minute.
