Jamie Eason’s 30-Day Knockout Total Body Workout

Get a Slim Body For Your Special Occasion

We have all done it. We mark our calendars for that special occasion with every intention to exercise, only to find that days turn into weeks and suddenly there is barely a month till the big day. A situation like this calls for one of my 30-day “boot camp” approaches to training. With this particular training routine, I’ve created an upper- and lower-body workout to help build and tone muscles with a circuit thrown in each week to really intensify the fat burning. Add a few days of your own cardio to the mix and you’ll be turning heads at your special occasion in no time.
