Summer means weekend travel and packed week nights that might keep you out of the gym, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get a workout in. Devote about a half hour to doing this set three times anywhere with just your bodyweight. If you’re really feeling like having a pack-it-all-in kind of night, this workout fits nicely between work […]

We did this pulsing, toning series last week at Bridal Sculpt and  it will get deep into the leg muscles with a mix of large movements and small. We repeated this series 2 times.
