To use either as a good warmup before your workout or to use in place of your cardio to increase your heart rate & get that calorie burn kick started , this will do the trick!,,, this incorporates core & balance ( 2 things we need to constantly strengthen)… It fires up the legs & glute muscles(our biggest calorie burners) & is a great cardiovascular training for the body! Alternating legs ,do 3-5 minutes then stop and do 3 of your best upper body & Ab moves 3x for a complete workout!… Finish up with a light , easy 3 minute jog and some static stretches!… Recover with a protein fruit smoothie or a piece of fruit or some yogurt w/ granola!

Start in a plank position, go down to a push up , do 4 mt. Climbers ( knee to the opposite elbow) to engage the obliques then plyo jump to feet ; arms over head . Repeat 10x or to fatigue … Rest 30sec. (Repeat 2 more times!) Workout DONE! NASM /CPT\FNS
More park workout moves: get your upper body muscles , abs & core firing with these 2 moves!…start with 3 sets of 8-10 and work up to 4 sets of 12-15!
To Rock your abs and strengthen your core all you need is a park bench!… Start with 3 sets of 8-10 reps and work up to 15-20 reps… Keep challenging yourself and don’t ever get comfortable with these moves !… Challenge is change! I like doing flutter kicks , then in/ outs ( starting with pulling knees into the chest & extending) & finish with reach throughs for an extra balance challenge! @ruthiegage NASM/CPT/FNS
If you want “change” you have to create it!.. Muscle is the fountain of youth and as we age we lose or at an alarming rate triggering weight gain. The best way to reverse this is to add resistance training to your workouts at least 3x a week!
