It’s getting close to that time of year depending on where you live, to put on your new Bikini, hit the beach or pool and work on your tan. For many of us especially if you live in colder climate, it’s easy to put on a few extra pounds on not be quite as fit and trim as you were the end of last summer so, here are some simple tips on diet and exercises I came across and wanted to share that will help get you Bikini Fit for summer!
HOW STARS DO IT, featured in LifeStyle Weekly,
Jessica Alba – says, “The biggest change in my body came when I stopped eating processed food. I don’t eat fast food or anything that that’s packaged or loaded with salt and preservatives”.
Eva Longoria Parker – “ I always get a good Bikini Wax, and I always spray – tan before I go to the beach. It’s really key because it acts as a sunblock, and you look better in a bikini when you’re already tan.
BOOST YOUR BUTT-
“Want your exit to be as grand as your entrance? For firmer, shapelier buttocks, “ resistance training is the best way to get rid of fat, says Jackie Warner, author of This is Why You’re Fat ( and how to Get Thin Forever) “It’s better than dieting alone or even dieting and doing aerobic exercise. “To target troublesome glutes, Warner suggest these exercises three times per week . Perform three sets of 15 reps”.
DUMBBELL FRONT SQUATS –
STEP 1 Stand with your feet hip width apart, your knees slightly bent and your toes facing forward. Hold dumbbells in front of your chest.
STEP 2 Bend at the knees and lower your body as if you going to sit in a chair. Straightening your legs to return to the starting position, pressing up from your heels.
STEP 1 Lie on an exercise mat with your knees bent and your arms out to the sides.
STEP 2 Press feet into the floor, contract your buttocks and abs, and raise your hips until your body forms a diagonal. Squeezing glutes throughout, lower to 1 inch fro the floor, never relaxing.
These exercises may not seem like much but do these 3 times per week 15 reps each, and you’ll see the difference in no time.
