The Absolute Best Workout To Get Ready For Summer

February 21, 2019

It’s that time of year again. Time to shed the winter layers, unpack your bathing suits and revamp your summer workout.

“The best plan to lose weight and get fit for summer is two-fold. The first part is getting started on an interval training program, for at least 20 minutes three times a week,” explains Parsley Health’s San Francisco Medical Director Dr. Tiffany Lester. “This will burn more calories at a faster rate compared to a typical cardio routine creates a metabolic flexibility between burning carbohydrates and fats – thus leading to overall fat loss. The second part is timing your carb-heavy meals to after this type of workout to refuel your muscles instead of the calories being stored as fat.”

To help you with your workout we talked to San Francisco-based trainer Austin Lopez of AUSome Fit who crafted an exclusive workout plan for Parsley Health patients.
