Just because beach days are dwindling doesn't mean your workout has to. These four total-body cardio blasts, designed by Kristin McGee (private trainer to LeAnn Rimes), burn fat and tone muscle head-to-toe.
Do the moves in order with no break. That's one circuit. Repeat twice, with a minute rest between circuits.
Do the workout two to three nonconsecutive days a week, and your summer body will last all year.
Standing Leg Lift
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, arms at your sides. Lift your right knee as high as you can and swing your left arm forward until it's parallel to the floor (A). Return to start and repeat with your left knee and right arm (B). Continue alternating sides, completing as many reps as possible, for 1 minute.
Brace your core to help control each leg swing.
Supercharge your workout routine with these small but powerful changes.
Cardio Ski Hop
Start at the top of a pushup position (A). With your legs together, brace your abs and kick your legs to the right, bending them so your feet land just outside of your right shoulder (B). Hop back to start and immediately repeat on the left side (C). Continue hopping side to side for 1 minute.
Bring your heels close to your butt when you jump from side to side and keep your abs engaged.
Bars and shakes are easy, but these real food options are can be just as good for an energized workout.
