In my mind, summertime means one thing — beer league softball, baby — and the aim of this week’s Wednesday Workout is to help you dominate the intramural fields for the next three months.

If you follow The Daily Caller’s normal gym prescriptions, you’re guaranteed to swell up like a bag o’ balloons, but what’s the point of looking good if you can’t perform? Just because you’re cut DOESN’T mean you’re functionally strong, so we’ve invited LPGA superstar Michelle Wie to demonstrate some of her favorite movements for improving full-body athletic performance.

Based on how Michelle picked up her first LPGA major victory at the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open — coupled with an absolutely rockin’ bod — I’d say they’ll get the job done.

P.S. — No one rocks the wide-brim, granny visor as well as Michelle… no one.
