Stay fit this summer with these 5 workouts.
Summer is here, but what about that #SummerBody? It’s never to late to start trying, and our friends Johnny and Brandi Barrera at B-FIT Tyler are here to show us 5 total-body exercises you can do from home to stay fit this summer.
The best part about these exercises is you can do as few or as many as you’re comfortable with. Of course, you want to push yourself for the best results, but only you know your limits.
So let’s get started.
The goal here is to spread your feet shoulder-width apart, and squat down as low as you can, preferably parallel to the ground.
2. Push Ups
For this exercise, you can either do a a whole body push up, or opt for the modified version on your knees.
3. Bicep Curls
Now for this exercise, you will need some weights. For beginners, start with around 8 pounds, for those more advanced grab those 15 or 20 pound weights. Keep your wrist straight and lift away.
4. Bicycle Crunches
Abs! Abs! Abs! Bicycle crunches are a great exercise at home because you can choose the number and pace. Put your hands behind your head and touch your elbow to the alternate knee. If you’re a beginner, start with 20 reps and work your way up to 100.
5. Jumping Jacks
Meet your cardio. Jumping Jacks is an easy way to get your blood pumping, and there’s no equipment involved.
If you’re feeling advanced, go ahead and do all over again 2 or 3 times.
