It's a Sizzlin' Saturday and We're Sweating Pink!

Its summer and I know everyone wants a slim midsection. Today’s workout challenge is all about Abs. As you know, working your abs and doing cardio is only 20% of the equation when showing your abs – the other 80% is done in the kitchen. So in addition to this workout, you are going to have to tighten up on what you eat if you want to see the rewards of your hard work! For 2 weeks, leave the junk alone, get your heart rate up for 20 minutes, 5 times a week, and do this abs routine and you will start to see some slimming results.
