Premium Challenge Pack: Week 4 Workouts

Wow, I cannot believe it’s already Week 4! I guess that means one thing… we’ve got to step it up 😉 I’ve upped the intensity just a bit this week because I know you can handle it!

Find you early access to the Week 4 Workouts below! Also, be on the lookout for the 2 training tip videos this week via email!

*Don’t forget to swing by LaurenGleisberg.com every AM for the BeYOUtiful daily “exercise” + photo challenge as well as that day’s blog post with more tips, motivation, recipes and community spotlights!

WORKOUT NOTES:

Superset – perform these 2 exercises back to back without rest; rest after both exercises have been performed. Complete the suggested amount of sets/round before moving on

Page Numbers – after each movement, I’ve noted the page number the workout demonstration can be found on in your Exercise Photo Library. This week, you may notice yourself having to look up a few more than usual, but as we get going, you’ll get the hang of these exercises and remember them by name!
