When it’s 90 degrees out and you quit your gym membership for the summer like I did, adding water to your workout is an absolute must on the extra hot days. I came up with this circuit for the really hot days that we’ve had this week and I loved it!
It takes 30 minutes total and you start at 5 minute intervals and work your way down to 1 minute.
So first swim however you want for 5 minutes without stopping.
Then jump out of the pool and do 5 minutes of abs of any kind without stopping.
Then jump back in the pool and do 4 minutes of swimming then 4 minutes of abs.
Just keep this going until you get down to 1 minute and do that final set.
So this is what it looks like:
5 minutes of swimming 5 minutes of abs.
4 minutes of swimming 4 minutes of abs.
3 minutes of swimming 3 minutes of abs.
2 minutes of swimming 2 minutes of abs.
1 minutes of swimming 1 minutes of abs.
If you do that and you feel like you could keep going then just run it backwards starting from 1 minute and work your way up to 5.
Fashion Tip: Wear a swim suit that will actually stay on while you are swimming so you don’t have to worry about stopping and fixing your suit during your workout. And wear a water proof digital watch so you can easily keep track of time. I love my Nike bikini and waterproof Adidas watch for pool workouts!
Happy Workout Wednesday! Just keep swimming 🙂
Since this is a pool workout here are some bonus photos from my swim wear photo shoot for Crazy Hot Clothes!
