Bikini body has become one of those phrases like “superfoods.” Every one uses is to symbolize the best of the best. If you like your winter body, your bikini body should be able to karate chop that shit to pieces. If you want to lose 5 lbs, your bikini body wants you to lose 7.
Here are 4 workout techniques to target that “bikini body” and get the one you are proud to show off at the beach. This is a vlog post so if you hate to read, just watch the video below!
#1. Planks. Get your core tight with this move. Hold it for 1 minute, rest for 1 minute and repeat 3 times. Once you get good, reduce your rest time to 30 seconds. Then increase your hold time to 90!
#2. Work The Booty and Side Butt. Get my favorite, signature bootilicious routine watching the video below. It includes Side plank leg lifts, donkey kicks and single leg hip lifts. It’s harder than it looks, I promise. It will lift your tush, reduce cellulite, and tone your behind.
#3. High Intensity Interval Training
This type of training burns the most amount of calories in the shortest amount of time and focuses on using fat for fuel. This type of training will help reduce the fat on top of your muscles so that when you tone them, the definition will be seen. Try my 5 minute HIIT Express Workout Video to see if you can cut it!
#4. Long Slow Day
One day a week, I recommend doing one long slow day of training whether you are training for a race or trying to lose weight. I call this my day to negate the “cheat” days or indulgent parties you attended during the weekend or week. It will help burn extra energy stores before finding a permanent home and become a permanent resident making them harder to lose. Burn it quick to keep it off. If you normally run 30-40 minutes during the week, on Saturday run for 60-75 minutes. Aim ideally for 20-50% longer or further than usual.
