The Big 50 August Challenge

It’s #TheBig50 August Challenge our Birthday Edition and being summer it’s perfect weather for the outdoor, saltwater pool time! Training in the pool is a great way to burn major calories and work hard without putting unnecessary strain on your joints! If that isn’t enough incentive it’s super fun too! These resistance exercises are designed to work your overall body while focusing on your core and cardio all at the same time… so keep your abs tight!

*If you’re not comfortable treading water in between exercises, stay in the shallow end and sprint for 50 seconds at a time. This workout can be done in any order so just have fun! #HappyBig50
