Pack your bikini’s girls because my Brit bestie, fitness expert and former international athlete, Caroline Pearce has created a workout series to help us all get into better shape for summer. Appropriately titled ‘Fit 4 Summer’, Caroline’s series includes one complete workout per day, here’s what to expect:

 

DAY 1:  FULL BODY SCULPT – Dumbbells

Caroline’s first workout combines multi muscle movements to sculpt and shape your entire body.

40 seconds per exercise, 20 seconds rest, 3-5 rounds with 60 seconds rest between rounds.

* Due to the high intensity nature of these exercises, Caroline suggests increasing the rest time to 30 seconds between exercises if you need to and regress the jumping movements to simple dynamic moves (without jumping) if you have bad joints.

Day 4 focuses completely on your lower body with multi muscle moves to work your glutes and legs.
