I decided to change up my workout routine between April and September. Every few months, I like to change up my workout, so my body and muscles  are “confused”. The weather’s getting warmer and I plan to be outside as much as possible this Spring and Summer. So, I will be adding some outdoor time to my workout. I only like to exercise outdoors when the weather is nice 🙂 I am sharing my workout routine for the next three months, in hopes it will help inspire you as well as help me to remember what my plan is 🙂 Please feel free to try any of this or integrate something into your workout routine.

I am adding more weights to my workout for the summer. I have been doing a lot of bodyweight and cardio exercises for the last several months.  I hope add more tone to my muscles and get more lean with this change. I’ll keep you posted on my progress!
