I have quite a few friends going on vacation this week. While in Cabo, I wanted to enjoy myself without screwing up my routine too much. I chose to do 40 minute workouts in the morning on the beach or in the resort’s gym using my workouts that I create for Barry’s. If you are going away or your regular schedule is screwed up thanks to New Years landing on a Wednesday, try this routine for a sweat-fest, calorie scorching workout.
