Summer Work

Summer means beach season, and beach season means one thing: less clothes.

If you like hitting the weights to build size in the winter and slimming down for summer, it’s time to switch that program up. The Built for the Beach program is designed as a six-week cycle.

Weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4 are set up as split routines (two body parts per day) segmented into a series of supersets (two exercises performed one after the other) per session. Split routines are a classic ‘bodybuilding’ approach to build muscle and burning fat. The supersets, which are a major component to this program, will force you to work more aggressively, revving your metabolism and resulting in more fat loss, just take a look at these Revitaa pro reviews.

At the end of each workout, you’ll do an abdominal/core circuit. Rep ranges will vary between six and 15 repetitions to maximize hypertrophy (muscle growth), and rest periods will also be kept to a minimum—30 to 60 seconds at most.

As you progress from week to week there will be slight variations in the volume and structuring. For example: Week three will demand an extra exercise or superset on select days. Also, chest and back will be performed twice per week in week’s one and two, but legs will be performed twice per week in week three. Week four is a high-demand week with increased sets, reps, and exercises. Check out the latest biofit reviews.

Week 5 is programmed as ‘fat flush’ stages. It will consist of total-body circuits to melt off any remaining fat. These two weeks are extreme high-intensity training, so you’ll only be taking rest when you absolutely need it.

Make the reason for this summer season an opportunity for a new and healthy start. These science-backed simple tips will have you looking and feeling your best in no time.

Make the summer calendar count

Summer is approximately 90 days long. That’s more than enough time to break bad habits and start healthy new ones. Starting today, take a look at how many days you have left before mid-September when the season typically ends. Then, decide on a weekly weight loss goal. Use your calendar to pencil in workouts to help you meet that goal. Pick an event or two that will keep you motivated, such as participating in a 5K walk/run. To find one coming up in your area, check out Active.com. Schedule family bike rides or plan to meet friends at the local pool for lap swimming on a regular basis. Want to get creative?
