The Hourglass Workout

The Hourglass Workout
Nothing says days at the beach more than a polka-dot bikini and some hot man candy waiting to rub suntan lotion on your body. But what if your love handles are making a bigger scene than your man candy? Don’t worry— Jennifer Andrews’ Hourglass Workout is the perfect program to nix the fat just in time to flaunt your new curves at the beach. The Hourglass workout program was created by Team Bombshell head coach Shannon Dey.

The Hourglass Workout is an entire week of workouts laid out for you. This workout is ideal for someone whose goal is to trim the fat and build the booty all at the same time. In this workout, you’re going to be doing something different every day; and the cardio is challenging, but fun!

Follow the workouts in their entirety. Do not change an exercise or leave out a set. The idea is to keep your heart rate up through building muscular shape and endurance. Complete each superset or tri-set, then rest 10-30 seconds. Repeat the set for the instructed set amount. Keep rest between exercise groups to a minimum. Alternate the two provided cardio programs for six days of the week. Perform cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, or post-workout.

Ab Busters: Use these moves in between sets to work your abs. Perform as many as you can (of your choice Ab Buster) for 30 seconds or one minute, then begin your next set.
