It’s about that time… it’s spring and almost bikini season! That’s my cue to work my core and strengthen and tone more than ever to get beach-body ready. I’ve incorporated a few of my favorite moves today and if you click the video above, you’ll see a cool cardio clip I put together on the beach!

-First I start with a few breathing and stretching exercises to loosen up and get my blood flowing.

CORE -Then, I incorporate side-to-side punch-outs: With feet a little wider than shoulder width and hands by your chin. Put your weight in your hips and sit back into a quarter squat position. Punch and twist to your left side with your right hand by rotating your core then repeat that movement while alternating sides for 25-30 seconds.

CARDIO – As you’ll see in the video clip, I love a good sweat-set of jumping-jacks. (Do 5 sets of 30)

CARDIO -Next, I run sprints from jetty to jetty on the sand (5 sets of 10 resting 25 seconds in between each set if needed)

YOGA -I like to end with some basic yoga poses like Sun Salutation,  Mountain Pose , and Warrior 1 ,   Warrior 2, and Warrior 3 –I alternate with other poses depending on the day and my mood, but I like to get at least 20 minutes in after my cardio-sesh.

Hope this gives you a boost to burn some calories today! What are your favorite go-to workouts?
