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. If the appearance of cellulite and varicose veins are getting in the way of your beach body check out this quick & effective cream from France called varikosette avis, I also encourage you to take a look at this highly recommended vein ablation treatment.
#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. If you’re looking into using supplements to speed up your fat burning progress, check out Resurge reviews 2020, Resurge supplement review and feedback, latest Resurge customer reviews. This is a great fat burning supplement that will help you lose weight fast and also help you get a good night’s sleep. 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.

I love some HIIT workouts! So sweaty and fun!
I really like the idea of a long, slow day. Do you have any suggestions for someone who is not a runner? I usually don’t have a lot of time during the week so I do a lot of high intensity, strength, and kickboxing, but I’d love ideas for weekends when I have more time. Thanks so much!!
Hi, Pua, I’m (obviously) not Sarah, but I thought I’d weigh in. I’m guessing that for those long, slow day sessions, you’d want to either do the same weekday activities you normally do, but add in an extra 20-30 min session, or try something else in addition. So if you have a HIIT go-to session, do that plus a strength training routine on the weekends, or add in a yoga session or something different to work other muscles. I think the main idea is to add in some extra time to your workout, however you prefer, to burn off those extra calories. Hope that helps!
Hi there! Thanks for the workout ideas! I wanted to watch the video, specifically for the lower body workout 🙂 but there’s just a blank white space at the bottom of the post? I’ve tried with a few different browsers. Any tips? Thank you!
Thanks for sharing. I usually either am all HIIT or all long and slow, will try and combine the two -- I need my bikini body 🙂
Hey Sarah! Great post. I saw you mentioned reducing cellulite, and I was wondering if you would do a post focusing on cellulite (best ways to reduce, targeted exercises, etc.)

These are some of my favorite moves. Perfect for when on the go too.
What fitness monitor are you wearing in the pictures? I am on the market for one. Also, these are great advice and the best ones for getting in shape!

I absolutely agree with an HIIT session and a long slow day during the week. I’d love to feature one of your videos on the Miss Strong website!
Where is the video? can you please send me a direct link of the video as its not appearing on your blog as of today. Thank you
Hi Cindy, all my videos can be found on my YouTube channel -- http://youtube.com/sarahfit Here is a direct link however. I was traveling last week and trying to work from my iPad -- it has it’s weaknesses and working with YouTube is one of them. Sorry for the trouble! It should be working above too.
