Getting Physically Fit for Bikini Season

With the summer days ahead, it’s time to get ready for bikini season. If you’ve not already begun your annual fitness regimen, now is the time to begin the process. The following steps can help you lose unwanted pounds and inches, to have you ready to strut in your bikini on the beaches in summer.


Cardio Exercise

What methods are all the new celebrities in gossip magazines that just gave birth using to get physically fit in such a short time? Traditionally, everyone loses weight by some type of cardio exercise which could include running or jogging. Cardio exercise is known to burn off calories, but not necessarily create a curvy lean body. To achieve that requires lifting light weights every other day at high repetitions.


Not Convinced Yet?

Many personal trainers to Hollywood stars have helped their clients lose tens of pounds within months after giving birth. This can be done every morning and requires only 20 minutes of time each day. Repetitive motion of lifting weights can help shape the muscles in the legs, abs, butt in arms.


A Healthy Diet

There probably is not one single person on the planet that has not already heard that eating a healthy diet can help an individual lose weight. However, the reason it keeps being shouted from the mountaintops, is because it works. Sugary treats and fried foods are notorious for putting on unwanted pounds and inches in nearly all of us. However, by reversing that diet, and consuming healthy foods like organic fruits and vegetables, quality lean meats, and healthy nuts and grains can make an individual shed off their pounds and inches.


Eating More Not Less

What? I can eat more not less and still lose weight? The answer to that question is surprisingly “yes” you can. By consuming better quality food, more times throughout the day, you’ll actually lose weight. To achieve this effect, you’ll need to eat a quality breakfast as early in the day as possible. Follow that with a midmorning snack to ward off any hunger pangs. It might be nothing more than a handful of unsalted nuts. Lunchtime brings with it a meal that is just as nutritious, and portion properly, as breakfast.

In mid afternoon, it’s important to stop whatever you’re doing, and consume another healthiest of nuts. Follow that by an early dinner, as early as possible, and call that the last meal of the day. If you live a traditional lifestyle of rising at six or 7 AM, and going to bed at 10 PM, never eat 7 o’clock in the evening. This will allow for a long fasting period of time between dinner and an early breakfast, which will help eliminate weight.


It’s imperative to never miss the first meal of the day. By consuming breakfast every morning, you’ll start your metabolism off right, and burn off excess pounds right from the start.


It does not take much to get ready for bikini season. With a little forethought, pre-planning, cardio workout, weight lifting and a healthy diet you’ll be ready for your bikini in no time.

The Most Effective Weight Loss Program Involves Better Habits

Every member of the family probably recognizes the best way they can stay fit and remain slender, even if they require significant amount of weight loss.
