What I’m Reading Wednesday: Summer Bod

It’s almost that time of year again. The sun is setting later, the days are getting warmer, and flip flops are becoming standard footwear. Are you ready?

While I firmly believe summer bodies are built in the winter, here are some great articles if you in panic crunch mode.

Fine, maybe cutting back on the second helpings at dinner won’t be so bad.  But what about: chocolate, bread, large coffees, pizza, donuts, etc?  The gurus at Examine.com explain why we get cravings… and it might just be insightful enough to help you control your own.

Still want a boost?  Here is a efficient and effective workout I sent one of my clients:

– Front lunge into a back lunge (10x/side)
– Squat
– Push Up
– Leg Raise
– Superman with you hand behind your head
Begin with 10 reps of each exercise in a row, then repeat from the top with 9 reps, then 8 reps, then 7 reps, etc.  until you work your way down to 1 rep of each.
No equipment or excuses necessary.
