Summer’s almost here, and you’re starting to panic whether you’ll be able to wear your swimsuit with pride. Calm, down take a deep breath and read on, because I’ve put together some of the most effective things you can do to tone up fast…
Lots of Lunges
Whenever you have a few minutes free, do some lunges. They will tone your legs and butt like nothing else, ensuring that your lower half looks better than ever in a bikini. You can see how to do lunges correctly at http://www.shape.com/fitness/workouts/know-your-basics-how-do-lunge. Do as many sets as you can, alternating between legs, at least 4 times a week for the best results.
Squeeze in Squats
Squats will do great things for your bottom, so if you’re worried about filling your bikini with a saggy, undefined butt, instead of a booty to rival Kim Kardashian’s, squeeze some lunges into your daily routine starting now and don’t stop until summer has started.
To do effective squats, bend from the knees until you are in a seating position with your butt slightly above your knees and your body almost at a right angle. If you have dumbbells, hold these as you squat for a more intense workout that will help to tone you up even more. Repeat 3-5 sets of 15 reps every two days for buns of steel.
High-Intensity Interval Training
It might seem too good to be true when you hear that it is possible to get toned in 10 minutes, but take a look at http://www.piyoreviews.com/, and you will see that it is perfectly possible. In fact, many scientists and researchers suggest that a few minutes of intensive exercise will get you fitter, thinner and more toned than prolonged periods of activity, which is why it really is easy to get toned in a hurry.
Go for a Run
Running is something that you can do anytime, anywhere as long as you have a decent pair of running shoes at your disposal. Running a few times a week will tone your arms, legs, and butt, and breathing in all that fresh air will do your body the world of good too.
If you want washboard abs, then stomach crunches are your best friend. They aren’t the easiest exercise to perform if you’re out of shape and you’ll certainly feel the burn, but if you do them right, and you can find out how at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKmrqcoCZ-M, you will notice results in a matter of weeks. Just make sure that you don’t attempt them if you’ve eaten in the past 2 hours or you could end up with painful cramps that will put paid to your exercising efforts.
Clean Up Your Diet
Of course, exercise is only half of the equation, and if you want to be as toned as possible, you will need to clean up your diet too. Eating clean is seen as a fad by some, but really, it just means eating healthy natural foods like lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Eating this way, ensuring you get enough protein, is the surest way to lose any excess weights, feed your muscles and tone up fast.
