It’s April 30 today – the last of April. Weather has been getting better for the spring. And we’re looking forward to summer beach and outdoor season.

Rome wasn’t built in one day, nor is your beach-ready body. It takes time, consistent training with supported nutrition and supplementation.

Instead of waiting until Memorial Day’s weekend to start summer shape-up fitness plan, I’m beginning to journal summer beach-ready workout, training, nutrition and strategies today.

Here is a 5-exercise circuit training workout routine that guarantees to boost your metabolism, challenge your whole body and core, blast calories and burn fat like crazy, because I did it this morning. And I was so pumped up, sweating and my legs were shaking.

I’m feeling good and looking great!

Here is the first summer beach ready workout routine. It’s a circuit training so do these exercises one after another with no or little break (15 seconds at most). Then rest for 2 minutes and repeat for a total of 3 to 5 circuits.

1. Forward Walking Lunges with 1-DB @ 35# Overhead Hold x 8 steps

2. 1-DB @ 35# clean and split jerk x 8 reps

Switch hand for the dumbbell. Repeat 1 and 2 for the other arm holding dumbbell.

3. Barbell Rotational Squat Press "Bus Driver" - Hold 45#Bar+25# with one hand, Squat down, Stand up, Rotate and Press the bar  x 10 reps

4. Barbell Woodchop Oblique Twist holding 45#Bar+25# with the same hand x 10 reps

Switch hand. Repeat 3 and 4 for the other side with the other hand.

5. Bodyweight Fingertip Pushup x 5 reps, then standard pushups x 25 reps.
