Get in Shape This Summer (And Beat the Bugs!)
Summertime and the Living is Easy
Mayday! Mayday! Summertime is almost here, but don’t be distressed – BeFitSRQ is on deck for you! In this newsletter, we have all the news you can use, from the exercise of the month to great ways to beat the summer bugs and heat. We hope you have a great summer!
Exercise of the Month: Biceps and Triceps
With summer right around the corner, it’s time to work those arms and go sleeveless. This month, we’re focusing on biceps and triceps. So what do those muscles do, you ask? Biceps flex the arm when you lift something heavy. They also help rotate the forearm (tennis, anyone?). Triceps work with the muscles in your back (latissimus dorsi) to extend your shoulders when you do a pushup.
Study the diagram below and do hammer curls and tricep kickbacks. Try them back to back and feel the results!
If you’re a beginner, do two sets for 30 seconds. If you’re at the intermediate level, try four sets for 30 seconds. If you’re advanced, do six sets for 30 seconds.
Our BeFitSRQ hand sanitizer made with doTERRA On Guard is perfect for all those times when you need to freshen up. Keep a bottle of this hand sanitizer made with doTERRA On Guard in your purse, car and office.
We also carry an all-natural mosquito and bug spray made with lemongrass and lavender essential oil. Use this DEET-free, homemade bug repellent to keep mosquitos and ticks away all summer long. Why not use beneficial essential oils instead of harmful chemicals?
Get Your Yoga On
Do you want to challenge your body? Yoga can condition the human body in many ways. Turn to yoga to increase your ability to focus on the present, build core strength and improve flexibility.

Here’s What a BeFitSRQ Client Has to Say
Be Safe in the Sun
May is Melanoma awareness month, so we wanted to tell you about one of the best ways to prevent skin cancer and protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays. BeFitSRQ carries BloqUV sun protective clothing for all of your outdoor athletic endeavors. This clothing is made with soft, chemical-free fabric that comes in a rainbow of colors.
An average white cotton shirt only has a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) of 5. BloqUV guarantees their shirts have a minimum UPF of 50. That means it’s blocking 98 percent of the sun’s rays.
