You work all year for your banging beach body so here's how to maintain it!
Winter woollies can hide all the seasonally sourced lumps and bumps, but come bikini season everything's on show. Stay taut, tight and toned this summer with these top training tips you can bust out anywhere at any time!
Bend your knees and drop your hips, keeping your chest high. The hips should come down parallel with the height of the knee, before ground-forcefully jumping as high as you can. You might want to keep your bikini bod in mind while you embrace the deathly burn.
Start in a plank position on your feet and elbows. Keeping the core and glutes tight and the hips square, rise from your elbows to your hands before returning back to your elbows and repeating. Ouch! My shoulders hurt just thinking about it.
Lay on your belly face down with your arms resting on the ground above your head. Lifting your head, upper chest and arms, squeeze your shoulder blades together, hold and relax back into the starting position and repeat. Baby got back!
We couldn’t throw in a superman inspired move without one motivated by his trusty sidekick. Start in a traditional plank position with your elbows and feet on the ground and hips square. Bring your right knee forward towards your right elbow and then return to plank position. Repeat by bringing your left knee toward your left elbow and continue to alternate on each side.
What’s a workout without a bit of cheeky cardio? Standing straight with your feet hip-width apart, kick out your right leg behind your left and lower your right hand to the floor in front of you. Bend your left knee, drop your weight to the floor and activate your glutes. Keeping your chin and chest up and looking forward repeat on the other side so it forms a fluid motion. You may look like Bambi on ice for the first few reps, but you’ll get the hang of it.
Perform each exercise for 45 seconds, followed by a 15 second rest and then move straight into the next exercise. You should be starting a new move every minute on the minute. Complete as many rounds as you can! Good luck! (you’re going to need it)
