Slim by Spring Boot Camp Workout

Jump Start Your Fat Loss for Spring

Spring is just around the corner. I know where I live we will be basking in some warmer temperatures!
Just about time to clear the closet of those heavy, winter clothes!

How will you feel about your body in the new, more revealing spring fashions?

This is your opportunity to establish a true metabolism boosting, fat burning, full body toning workout plan.

We all deserve to look our very best as we anxiously await the arrival of warm weather. This waiting game does not have to be spent in fear....fear of wearing shorts again or trying to slip into a summer tank.

That is why I am sharing one of my favorite Fit Yummy Mummy boot camp workouts - one of the fat blasting workouts I have the pleasure of sharing with the Fit Yummy Mummy's who live here in Elizabethtown, KY.

This is a Full Body Resistance Training workout designed to give you the benefit of trimming and toning those trouble areas as well as pumping up your energy levels. Be sure you also follow a supportive nutrition plan to double your results.

While no single workout plan is THE answer - this one will be sure to kick start your way to a leaner body by summer.

Complete each super set 2-3 times in a row with little to no rest before moving on to the next super set.

Perform this workout every other day (do not perform resistance training on back to back days - a day of rest is essential to your ability to see results).

You will want to change your workout up every 3-4 weeks to prevent hitting a plateau. For more fat burning workouts, be sure to check out the Fit Yummy Mummy Lifestyle System.
