Hi everyone! My latest Fit Over 50: Summer Sizzle magazine is out now, and I am so excited to share some of the exercises in it with you! The entire fitness section is devoted to helping you get and stay fit, so you look and feel your best during summer and beyond. Below is a sample of my Interval Training Workout section - three workouts featuring low-impact exercises that help to tone while staying gentle on your body. Challenge yourself to add these fat-blasting moves to your daily routine, and you WILL see a difference in your muscle tone and stamina!

Interval Workout 1: Cardio Booty. I designed this 10-move, low intensity, targeted plan to help lift and firm your backside! One of the exercises is a Donkey Kick. Simple get on your hands and knees, bend one leg at 90 degrees so the bottom of the foot is facing the ceiling and then push the leg up and then bring back down. Focus on keeping your buttocks tight. Do this 10 times on each side for a tightened tushie! 

Interval Workout 2: Arms and Abs. The nine moves in my magazine will help to firm up your arms and minimize a poochy belly! I love the Standing Side Crunch - just stand with your feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent. Then put your hands behind your head and crunch to one side, bringing your knee up and your elbow down so they touch. Do this 10 times on each side - so easy to do anywhere for a quick extra bit of calories burned! 

Interval Workout 3: Kickboxing. Such a great way to burn calories and fat while getting in cardio! I have five Kickboxing moves, so why not start with the Squat Hold and Punch! Stand with your feet hip width apart, and lower into a squat. Then hold your hands under your chin, and alternate punching each fist out as fast you can for 45 seconds. Then rest for 15 seconds, and repeat! A great mini-cardio move that works the whole body!

You can see my entire Interval Training Workout Plan - plus my Shape and Sculpt routine, a cardio workout and more - in my latest Fit Over 50: Summer Sizzle issue! On newsstands and online now!

Let's live FIT, HAPPY and HEALTHY - together!!
