The Natural SuiteLast month, I shared a circuit routine to tone your chest, butt, and core. To shake things up, I’ve created a total-body toning routine that incorporates both cardio and strength-training supersets—in three separate circuits—because I know you didn’t have just one piece of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, and because of course you had to have a second helping of sweet potatoes. Disclaimer: I’m not judging, I’m just glad I’m not the only one experiencing this well-deserved food coma. Although I performed this routine on Tuesday—as part of the holiday prep, if you will—it’s also a great...
