Legs For Days
Never skip leg day, right? When you live in a hot climate like I do it can get quite humid and you’re gonna want to skip the sweatpants and opt for a pair of shorts instead. When living in a hot and humid climate you probably want to work on keeping your legs toned but maybe you don’t have enough time to hit the gym for the treadmill.

They balance your heart rate and increase blood circulation maintaining blood cholesterol levels. Butt kicks are a great way to warm up the body and get ready for the rest of the workout making it number two on this cardio workout. Pushups are great to work on upper body strength.

You can tone your arms with minimal workout equipment if any at all but its great to own a simple five-pound dumbbell to add to the exercise.

There you have different workout routines for different muscles and parts of your body. My favorite is the leg for days for a workout because there’s nothing better to me than toned tan legs. However, you can work and choose what workouts on this list is better for you and what you want to repeat during the week. These fitness routines are perfect to do throughout the week repeating the ones that you like the most of the ones that you think you need to work on more. I would do the leg for days twice a week, or the indoor cardio twice a week and then the rest once a week interchanging what you need to think is best. Is there any workout routines or fitness exercises that you think should have been added to this workout plan. If you have the time you could also work on more than one routine in a day however remember that you will get sore and you will have to continue working out throughout the week even if you feel like resting. Fitness routines are to be continued if you want to see improvement and a noticeable difference you have to keep at it that is why it is important too keep a schedule of your workout and have at least one rest day. This will allow you to recharge and prepare for the next routine the following days. If the five-pound dumbbells are also getting too easy for you you could change it into a ten-pound dumbbell however you don’t want to get too heavy on this for safety sake. If you’re looking for something harder I’d suggest investing in a bench press.
