Workout 167 - Summertime Workout!

Summer, summer, summertime!  Time to sit back and unwind...Summer, summer, summertime!  Time to sit back and unwind.  Sorry, couldn't resist but if you were a teenager in the 90s you understand you just can't think of Summer and not think of Will Smith's song Summertime!  Right?!

It's the theme to the workout this week because it's officially Summer.  Here is a workout to help you maintain your "hot" summer bodies!  (Will Smith video included at the bottom)

Complete this workout 3 times this week on non-consecutive days!!

Equipment Needed:  Dumbbells or weighted objects (whatever you have to use!!)  Use heavy weights because reps are lower.  Here's a reminder of why it is ok to use heavy weights why you should not fear heavy weights click on this link!!
