Get Ready for Summer With This Full-Body Workout From the Tone It Up Girls
Tighten and tone from head to toe with this total-body routine.
Want to shape up for warmer weather? Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott (who you probably know as the Tone It Up Girls) shared their favorite full-body workout to help get you started. With just four exercises, you'll target your core, shoulders, chest, triceps, glutes, hamstrings, and upper back. Complete the entire sequence with as little rest as possible to get your heart rate up, which helps your body torch calories. All you need is a little space and a yoga mat, making this the perfect workout to do at home (or outside in the sunshine).
And if you want more workouts from Karena and Katrina, here's some good news: Starting April 24, the pair is launching an 8-Week Bikini Series Challenge to help you get toned and strong for summer. The challenge includes meal plans, fitness tips, workout videos, and more. Head to toneitup.com now to sign up.
