Cardio – The amount of cardio I do will vary based on my goals. When I am in prep for competition or just trying to lean out, my cardio can range anywhere from 40-80 minutes a day, 4 - 5 days a week. When I am not in prep, I try to keep my cardio to a minimum so I can focus more on maximizing muscle gains. At that time, I typically only do around 30 minutes, 3 days a week.

Here is one of my favorite HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts:

  • 5 minute warm-up jog
  • 10 (20-second) sprints + 30 Bodyweight Squats at the end of each sprint. Rest 30 seconds’ in-between sprints. If I’m not doing my sprints in the sand, I do them uphill to make them more challenging!
  • 2 minutes of walking lunges
  • 30 “Box-jumps” (I do these on a park bench outside) –superset with- 30 step-up on the same bench (15 each leg). Rest 30 seconds and repeat for a total of 3 sets.

  • Side Lunges (30 seconds one direction, 30 seconds back). Rest 30 seconds and repeat for a total of 3 sets.
  • 100 High-Knees

I go as heavy as I can without compromising my form.

I train minimal arms, as they are quite developed, so with the bikini look, I need to make sure they do not look too over trained.

I do 20 minutes HIIT on the treadmill after each session, on my non-weight training days I do a 45-minute walk outside or Plyometrics.

ABS WORKOUT

This is a full workout, 45min AB routine that targets hitting the abdominals from all areas, lower/side and top region. Concentration is focused on lower abdominals (the top region is always being hit in process).

If you are using weight and progressively adding per set then reps should be 10-12, when not using weight rep ranges switches to 25-30 reps. Rest time between sets also changes, when weight is involved allow yourself 30-40 seconds between sets like any other body part. With no weight, minimal rest between sets is needed.
