Work on Your Summer Body

May 11, 2016 11:20AM, Published by Staff Writer, Categories: Acadiana Life, Health, Lifestyle



Now that spring has arrived, you may be itching to get out in the sunshine. This is perfect timing to work on toning your body for summer. Head to your favorite park to ease into the following routine.


Cardio- 30 minutes

Intervals: Warm up with 5 minutes of brisk walking; followed by 2 minutes of sprinting and three minutes of recovery (jogging). Repeat 4 times. Finish with 5 minutes of walking to cool down.




 

 

Arms:

Find a park bench and do 2-3 reps of 15 of pushups and tricep dips.






 

Abs:

Hanging upside down on the monkey bars, bring your upper body into a crunch to work out those abs.






 

Legs/Butt:

Do 2-3 reps of 15 of both squats and walking lunges.





Do this workout at least 3-4 times per week. Once you’re in a groove, you can change things up and get more intense. Always make sure you have the okay from your physician before starting any exercise program.
