Chances are you might well be heading off on your summer holiday soon which is likely to involve lots of time spent on the beach, which can mean only one thing – you need to make the effort now to get in the best possible shape so that you are comfortable showing off your beach body to the world!
With this thought in mind, below we have compiled 6 Tips For Getting A Beach Ready Body just in time for the summer season – read on to find out how you can do it……
1 Set goals
The first key tip to getting your body ready for the summer season where it is going to be shown off to the world is taking a good look at yourself and being honest and realistic about your problem areas and what you can achieve in terms of improving them in such a short period of time before the summer season now kicks in.
Enlist the help of a skilled personal trainer to help you with this – it’s great to get a second opinion from an outsider who can view you and your body objectively, especially someone who is a trainer fitness professional so will know exactly what can be achieved and how quickly. Think about the changes that you want to make and how you will get there? Will you have to drastically change your diet, or even your complete lifestyle? Above all, be realistic – it’s no good setting goals that you know you won’t stick to – make them sensible and achievable for you.
2 Do plenty of cardio
The key to being able to show off toned muscles in all their glory in your beachwear lies in shedding excess body fat that covers them, so you’ll need to be doing plenty of cardio in order to burn the calories and shed the layer of fat. So start running, jogging, walking, biking, and/or swimming on a regular basis – whatever it takes, and try to do at least 3-4 sessions a week for at least 1 hours duration.
3 Focus on diet
It’s no good doing all that cardio and burning the required calories if you are consuming way too many calories through your diet – so be sure to have a suitable, structured diet plan in place for getting your body beach ready, and make sure you stick to it.
4 Try Yoga and/or Pilates
As well as burning the required calories through cardio, it would also be beneficial to start doing exercise such as yoga and/or pilates as they complement the cardio exercise well by toning and strengthening the body’s muscle which will give you a better look for the summer when strutting out in beach wear.
5 Target your core
If you want to get a great body that’s ready for the beach this summer, then you’ll need to focus on tightening and toning the muscles of your core, as this is a really key area when it comes to looking good in beachwear.
Focus on performing exercises such as crunches, leg lifts and the plank, in order to tone and strengthen the core and help get you beach body ready this summer.
6 Enlist the help of a body transformation specialist
