Tips On How To Get Bikini Body Ready 27th April 2016
Spring has arrived and it won’t be long before many of us jet away somewhere warm for a sunshine holiday. Or you might be lucky to have a slice of summer at home with your own indoor luxury pool.
Whatever the case may be, you might be feeling a bit self-conscious about stripping off into your bikini for the start of the swimsuit season.
Here are our tips on how to get your bikini body as winter comes to an end.
Use Your Pool For Exercise
The luxury of having your own swimming pool means you can do more with it than simply recline on a lounger and read a book for some alone time on a weekend. Make the most of it by doing laps every day and burning off that winter fat.
Get into the habit of doing some lengths when you wake up so you are all set for work, or after you come back from the office. Half an hour of fast front crawl can burn as much as 404 calories, compared with running, which will see you lose just 300 calories in the same amount of time.
Ditch the stodgy food
Some days it might still feel like winter outside, but it is time to set aside hearty grub in favour of some fresh, lighter alternatives. Instead of cottage pie or macaroni cheese, you could make yourself a delicious quinoa salad, baked sweet potato with kale, or grilled fish with some greens.
Not only will you feel less heavy after meals, but swapping carb-rich foods for protein will give you a leaner, less bloated look as well.
It doesn’t matter how much weight you lose if you don’t tone up at the same time. Weight resistance is the best way to do this, so why not sign up to some circuit training, bootcamp-style classes to really work those muscle groups you’ve neglected recently?
