T-minus 6 weeks!

I've only been in class for 2 weeks and I can't believe spring break is in 6 weeks. I've been working out hard to get ready for the beach. It is my first time going somewhere for spring break and a group of my friends are going to the Dominican Republic! I'm not setting any weight loss goals, just trying to tone and firm up. This is my work out plan (created by my excellent bf who is an exercise science major).

Wow on first glance I thought it was way, way intense, but I feel like all the reps will probably go pretty quickly!
Good luck!
