Exercises for Swimsuit Season

Learn how you can get the best bikini body ever in Six easy exercises. These exercises are designed to target and reshape your “swimsuit zones” – your tummy, thighs and hips – the body parts that tend to stand out in a bathing suit. You can do these exercises in the convenience of your own home.

1. Jumping Squats:

Stand with your feet just a bit wider than shoulder-width apart, abs pulled in tight, and bend your knees, lowering your body till your thighs are parallel to the floor and jump straight into the air. Return to starting position and repeat for one minute.

2. Reverse Lunges:

Standing with feet shoulder-width apart, step back into a lunge and repeat on the opposite side, alternating for one minute. Be sure that abs remain tight throughout, working your core and maintaining your balance and posture.

3. Side Planks:

Lie in a plank position with one hand flat on the ground and the other pointed straight to the sky with your feet stacked one over the other. Slowly drop your hips to the ground while maintaining a locked arm, using only your core. Return to your starting position and repeat.

4. Dips:

Using a bench or the edge of a chair, position your arms at your sides (almost to the back), flex at the elbow, and lower yourself toward the floor. Return to starting position and repeat for one minute, but don’t rely on your lower body to help lower and raise you — your arms should be doing all the work here.

5. Push-Ups:

Your whole body should be completely straight and stretched. Only the tips of your toes and the palms should be resting on the ground. The hands are just under the shoulder axis, flat on the ground. Bend your arms slightly. Lower your body evenly. In the end position the arms are bent at about a right angle. The tips of your feet provides the pivot of the movement. The body remains stretched and tense. Note: Do not sag your body.

6. Bent-over Rows (Db):

Kneel over side of bench by placing knee and hand of supporting arm on bench. Position foot of opposite leg slightly back to side. Grasp dumbbell from floor. Pull dumbbell to up to side until it makes contact with ribs or until upper arm is just beyond horizontal. Return until arm is extended and shoulder is stretched forward. Repeat and continue with opposite arm.

Fit Tip: To make the most of your time and achieve the fastest results possible, use compound movement exercises that deliver the most in short duration. Perform eight to 12 reps each exercise. Perform all reps of exercises in succession without resting in between, then rest for 90 seconds and repeat two or three more times.

By combining low fat diet with this new exercise routine you will rev up your metabolism and keep your energy high, and see amazing results!
