Sweat It Out!

I am 17 days out from my first competition of 2012, the Mr./Ms. Natural Minnesota, IFPA Pro North American, and the goal is to sweat, sweat, sweat!  I have updated my workouts with the help of Sienna Bahlmann of Sienna B.Fit and Danny J Johnson of the Sweaty Betties.  The workouts are performed as a circuit without any rest between exercises or sets.  Because of my schedule, I do my cardio in the morning and lift after my day job Monday-Thursday.  I work doubles on Fridays so I lift in the morning and do my cardio during my lunch break.
