Happy Monday lovely Bikini body countdown girls! With a new week comes new strength, new motivation and a new full body video-workout. Take a deep breath and try to think positive, because Monday is your first chance in the week to have a great start and we’re about to work on your full body with the help of this sculpting workout!
Bikini Body Countdown program
Every week on Monday you can expect a new video workout with below all the technical information you need to perform properly. Repeat the video workout of week 4 for 3 times on days your schedule allows it best. For an optimal result, try to perform a 30 min. cardio workout 1-2 times per week next to the video workout to lose fat fast.
Per month you can expect 1 LEG workout, 1 ARM workout, 1 CORE workout and we close in the fourth week with a FULL BODY workout. However, all exercises will always make your work on several muscles at the same time.
During the program we will increase level, frequency and weight, but we offer a distinction between beginners and advanced fit girls. So no excuse, every girl can do this! Just listen to your body and challenge yourself every week. Another big PLUS is that all exercises can be performed at home, outdoor or at the gym!
