It takes effort and dedication to make time for a workout, especially on a holiday. That’s why it’s nice to have a few go-to workouts that you can do anywhere (with or without weights).
Check out my July 4th–inspired fat-burning workout below. There are 13 movements (for the 13 colonies) with sets of 50 (for the 50 states). It’s also a perfect workout when you’re traveling, and ideal for those days when you need to get movement in, but just can’t make it to the club.
Also, make sure to check out our Mini Keto Burgers for your 4thof July menu. They only have 4 ingredients and take less than 20 minutes to make. And if you need more menu ideas for your celebration, check these recipes out.
