60 Days to Summer

(It's actually 77 days, but this is a rotation for 60 workouts...)

Time to start training for summer tank tops and shorts! I nicked this rotation from the Firm website--it's by Kirsten Palmer, and is actually targeted at June brides. (She calls it '60 Days to Wedding Ready'). But never mind! We can all melt some fat and be set to show off those guns in the golden summer sun!

DH will be left out a few of those weeks where the focus is cardio, but he can always work out on his own. Plus there's no yoga, but I may be able to add some on short cardio or rest days.

I am starting this new rotation tomorrow! Exciting! I've been floundering for the last couple of months, just grabbing something somewhat at random--good to have a goal again!
