Summer Time Workout

Kelowna Summer

The weekend is approaching, the beach is calling your name, and so is your group of girlfriends who have been waiting for a good catch-up over martinis. Fitting a workout in while keeping your summer social life alive can seem pretty much impossible at times. Instead of writing it off completely, here is a quick full body workout that will have you sweating before you slip on your swimsuit or prior to strapping on some heels!

DR-Sept14-187

Full body summer shred.

Start with a 5-10 minute warm up.

If you’re doing this workout inside, grab a chair. If this workout is outdoors, find a park bench or something to step up on.

Set your timer for 15-20 minutes and giver! (Weights are optional.)

Step ups-20 each leg

Place your foot in the middle of the chair and bring the body to a full standing position. Lower with control and repeat.

Chair dips-15-20

Place your hands on the chair with fingers facing your bum. Bring your bum back close to the chair so that shoulders are over top of wrists. Legs can be bent or straight for a more challenging option. Slowly lower with elbow going back as you lower. Squeeze your triceps and bring the body back to starting position.

Split lunge-20 each leg

Place the toes of one foot on the chair, bring the opposite leg forward in a lunge position. As you lower into a lunge make sure your knee does not go over the tip of the toe. If it does, hop your front leg out further to get the leg in proper alignment. Keep your chest proud and shoulders lowered. Once you have proper body placement, lower knee right above floor. As you rise to the beginning of the exercise squeeze your bum hard to engage those butt muscles!

Chair mountain climbers-15 each side

Place your body in a push up position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Keep your core tight and slowly place your feet in the chair. Make sure the body is straight, hips in alignment with shoulders and bum tight. Slowly bring right knee to right elbow. Bring right foot back to chair and repeat on opposite side.

Chair jump squat-30

Lower your bum to the chair. As soon as you feel your bum touch the seat burst up into a full jump squat. Lower and repeat.

Chair dips-15-20 

Place your hands on the chair with fingers facing your bum. Bring your bum back close to the chair so that shoulders are over top of wrists. Legs can be bent or straight for a more challenging option. Slowly lower with elbow going back as you lower. Squeeze your triceps and bring the body back to starting position.
