If you’re ready to get in shape for summer, my workout plan can help you get the results you want. This program, which has been modified from my book “Ultimate You,” is designed to help you shed excess body fat, elevate your metabolism and increase your overall muscle tone so you can get your best beach body ever.
Over the next four weeks, we are going to maximize our training time by incorporating a technique called metabolic resistance training circuits. With this style of training, you will perform one set of the first exercise; rest for the predetermined amount of time; then move onto the next exercise, and so on. Once you’ve completed one set of each exercise in the circuit, you’ll rest for two minutes, then repeat the entire circuit one or two more times depending on which week you are in the program. The routine below should be completed three times per week on non-consecutive days (for example, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays).
