Summer Conditioning Workouts

Happy Memorial Day! With the warm months upon us now, I thought it would be a good time to offer up some great conditioning, fat-burning summer workouts.

These workouts are challenging and intense, but they’re also very approachable. Enjoy getting in sick shape, ladies!

Conditioning Workouts for Summer

Lower Body Focus:
15-20 minutes – As Many Rounds As Possible (AMRAP)
10 Goblet Squats
20 Kettlebell Swings
10 Box Jumps

This is so simple, but brutal. If you decide to do 20 minutes, I would recommend making this your only workout for the day because your lower body will be very fatigued afterward. Keep track of the number of rounds you get so you can try and beat your score the next time!

Upper Body Focus:
2-5 rounds (depending on experience level)
10 Push-Ups (more advanced – do plyo push-ups)
10 Kettlebell or Barbell High Pull
10 TRX Rows
15 Medicine Ball Slams

This workout can be easily be added to the end of a workout to get in some conditioning. I recommend 30-90 seconds rest in between rounds.

Core Focus:
3-4 rounds
10 Toes to Bar (if you need to modify, do Hanging Leg Raises)
20 Plank to Push-ups
10 Landmine Twists
100-yard One-Arm Farmer’s Carry (if a beginner, do regular double-arm Farmers Carries)

This workout has the same notes as the upper-body focused one.

Train hard, ladies!
