For many of us summer is right around the corner and for some of us like here in beautiful Norway it has already arrived! So in honor of this beautiful weather that God has blessed us with I decided to take my workout outside and get my daily vitamin D as well! Today I wanted to share with you all a simple workout routine that you can do at your own pace and in your own space! As a model I’ve always needed to find a way to workout without being dependent upon a gym or even equipment’s. These exercises are easily to do- anytime and anywhere so if you are a working boss lady, an awesome stay at home mom or you just don’t like the gym;-) Don’t you worry! All you need is a bottle of water and a towel (or a mat) and you are all set! I tried my very best to show you how each one of these exercises are done but remember I am in no way shape or form a personal trainer but this works for me and I just wanted to share with you all because sharing is caring! But before we start, remember to always wear sunscreen if you decided to take your workout outside in the sun! So are you ready? Let’s go!

BRIDGE : TARGETS THE CORE & THE GLUTES
