Get a Custom Summer Workout from Expert Trainer Brooke Marrone

If you haven't noticed (yet), we at MC have been absolutely fervent about posting summer health stories. It's not because we want you to look good (because you already do!), but because we want you to feel good. Summertime is the season for sundresses, fried chicken picnics, and weekends at the beach, so this is the most important time of year to be über-comfortable in your own skin. That being said, we chatted with New York-stationed Brooke Marrone of Brooke Marrone Fitness to give us an easy, effective workout to get our heart rates up and blast fat from our most troublesome areas. Do this circuit workout every-other day, and you'll see results in no time.

Move #1
Works: Butt & Abs
How-To: With feet shoulder-width apart, step your right leg back into a lunge, lowering your body until your knee almost touches the floor. Then, go right into burpees. Repeat on the left leg, finishing with another set of burpees.
Repetition: 25 on the right leg; 10 burpees; 25 on the left leg; 10 burpees.

Move #2
Works: Butt & Arms
How-To: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, with or without five-pound weights in hand. Do a full body squat by bending both legs (put your weights down here if you're holding them). Then, do a minute of jumping jacks, followed by a minute of push-ups.
Repetition: As many squats as you can do in 60 seconds; as many jumping jacks as you can do in 60 seconds; as many push-ups as you can do in 60 seconds.

Move #3
Works: Butt, Abs & Arms
How-To: In this cross-body mountain climber exercise, start in a high-plank and bring your right knee to your left elbow. Return to start. Do as many as you can in a minute, and close with a set of burpies.
Repetition: As many climbs as you can do in 60 seconds; 10 burpies; repeat.
