If you’re like most babes, we know what you want - a hot body to show off in your favorite bikini next summer.
The good news is that you don’t need to spend a ton of money on personal trainers. We got you covered with some awesome exercises that can easily become your everyday workout routine and bring you those luscious results you’re yearning for.
Here’s a list of workouts that will help you target your problem areas and guarantee that you have your dream body until it’s time to model your swimwear.
Lose That Weight
First things first, let’s drop the act – most of us could lose some weight.
Have no fear, because HIIT (high-intensity interval training) is not your only option.
For those who prefer to take it slow and steady, there’s LISS (low-intensity steady state). Instead of sweating your heart out on the treadmill, consider hiking, swimming, light jogging, or even doing yoga.
Tone That Booty
You can do the exercises without equipment, but we’ll mention what can be used for best results.
Side Lunge. Place a resistance band around your thighs. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and keep your back straight. Go into a side lunge on your left leg and repeat 20 times. Now do the same with your right leg.
Sumo Squats. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Grab your dumbbells and hold them in front of your body. Lower your booty toward the ground and hold the position for 5 seconds. Stand up and do 15 more reps.
Single Leg Deadlift. Stand on one leg. Hold your kettlebell or dumbbell with the hand on the same side of your body. Bend and extend your other leg behind you until it’s parallel to the ground. Stand up and do 15 reps on each side.
Trim That Waist
Let’s cinch that waist and sculpt those abs with a few simple exercises!
Toe Touches. Lie on your back and lift your legs. Keep them at a 90-degree angle. Hold a dumbbell with both hands and extend your arms. Reach toward your feet and try to touch your toes. Return to the initial position and do 20 reps.
Russian Twist. Place your booty on the ground. Extend your legs and bend your knees. Your heels should touch the floor. Elevate your upper body until you feel your lower abs burning and hold the position. Hold a dumbbell with both hands and twist your body to the left. Your feet should stay firm on the ground. Do 15 reps and twist to the other side.
Tone Those Legs
Want lean legs? No problem. Here are some exercises that can help you tone your inner and outer thighs:
Plie Pulse Squat. Stand with your feet more than shoulder-distance apart and slightly lift your heels. Go into a squat and pull your body toward the ground (more than you would in a normal squat). Hold the position and pulse up and down for up to 20 seconds. Return to the initial position and do 15 more reps.
Fire Hydrant. Get down on all fours and wrap your resistance band at the lower end of your thighs. Keep your back straight. Lift your left knee to the left, return to start position, and do 15 more reps. Now switch your legs.
Curtsy Lunge. Grab your dumbbell or kettlebell and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Step back with your right foot diagonally to the left and go into a lunge. Return to the start position. Do 12 more reps and switch legs.
