Get Swimsuit Ready 6-week Workout Plan: Week 6



6-weeks to Swimsuit Ready: Week 6

NEWS FLASH!!! It’s the final week in the 6-week challenge to get swimsuit ready!!!

 

I have to say… this is quite fun and I am so excited to hear about your results.

 

I encourage you to keep up the hard work and strive for the finish line… but, just because we are soon to finish a 6-week goal, this does not mean you can stop and smell the daises! With the series winding down, I hope you still have fuel in your fire and want to keep it going strong and achieve more! Remember health and fitness is a lifestyle that is something you make a part of your every day

 

The final days to getting swimsuit ready is exciting because:

1. You have remained motivated, inspired, and dedicated for 5 amazing weeks so far!
2. You have 1 week left to achieve the goal you set… feeling amazing in your skin!
3. I have created 2 new workouts that you can add to your Total Gym library that can be done this week, as well as in your future workouts!

 

Let’s review the 6-weeks plan of action and learn what you will work on this week.

The 6-week swimsuit ready program:

Follow the workout routine for each day listed on the calendar provided. Each week I will provide you with a new strength circuit and cardio/ strength intervals to change up the routine and challenge your body to achieve results.

 

Equipment: Total Gym equipment or free weights
This 6-week program utilizes the Total Gym equipment. If you do not have a Total Gym, you can still perform similar exercises with hand weights to mimic the movements performed on the equipment.

 

How it works: Perform the exercises back-to-back, with little to no rest (30-60 seconds rest) between moves as needed. Complete the circuit 2-3 times total, with up to 90 seconds of rest between circuits.
