Spring has sprung and summer is on it’s way. This means it’s a good time to start getting your body beach ready or just summer ready –  no beaches need to be involved. Now the weather is improving the snuggly sweaters and warm jackets have gone. It’s time to start thinking about summer dresses, shorts, cami tops, swimwear… and when we think about those things we also start to think about getting in some workouts.

So if you are looking for some workout inspiration to help you on your journey to summer readiness then look no further. This workout is approx 20 minutes and can be done anywhere, the only piece of equipment you need, other than an exercise mat, is a timer. The aim is to get as many reps as possible done for each exercise within the set time.

Quality Over Quantity

When completing workouts that are timed it needs to be said that getting lots of reps is good but it is more important to have quality over quantity. This means that you need be concentrating on your form for each exercise. After all, doing an exercise properly is extremely important, you want to work your muscles properly through their full range of motion. Rushing to get reps out will not speed up your transformation or get you the best results.

NB. This may be a HIIT type workout but the next one we will be doing will be more of a traditional type workout, i.e. a set amount of reps and sets and we will be concentrating on that booty! Yes, a perky butt is what we will be aiming for… although… a legs workout is another one high on our list, maybe we will do that one first? So keep an eye out and see which one it will be but until then keep up the good work and have fun.

And without further delay, here it is – the simple yet effective full body fat burner…
