Get Fit for Summer with Bikini Body Workout Plan

If you think it's too late to get bikini-ready for swimsuit season, you're wrong! Here's a workout that will get you in shape and a plan so you can commit to getting fit for summer.

"Now, we're in a crunch  everybody is trying to get ready for bikini season. We wait until the last minute, and we're like 'Oh my gosh, we have a vacation coming up and have to get in shape.' So, I created this plan just for you," says Personal Trainer Hilary Hagner.

The Rules:
  • Eat five to six meals a day, relatively small, cutting out sugar.
  • Be active for thirty minutes, six days a week. One day, you can completely rest.
  • In addition to the cardio, do the following ten minute calorie-torcher workout four times a week.
The Calorie-Torcher Workout:
  • This is going to give you the resistance training you're not getting from cardio. It'll condition all the major muscles, get your heart rate up, and burn calories more
  • From beginner (with modifications) to advanced, it's realistic for anybody. You just need to do it.
  • It's exercise for forty seconds and rest for twenty seconds.

The Moves:

1.High-knee/Butt-kicks: Do high-knee, high-knee, in front. Then, butt-kick, butt-kick in back. Alternate for the full 40 seconds. You work your abs, your hamstrings, and your glutes.

    20 seconds of rest

2. Donkey Jumps: Hands on the mat, feet to one side of the mat. Jump both feet up, kick your butt, land on the other side of the mat. Go back the other direction.

    20 seconds of rest

3. Curtsy Lunge: Cross legs like an exaggerated curtsy, bow down a little bit, when you come up put your leg out to the side. Make sure your toe is angled down slightly. It works more of the booty. When the toe is up, you're working more hip flexor.

    20 seconds of rest

4. Curtsy Lunge with the other leg

    20 seconds of rest

5. Football Shuffle: Crunch down low, shuffle your feet as fast as you can, staying down low, up to the front of the mat. Then, run/shuffle backwards to the back of the mat.

    20 seconds of rest

6. Crickets: In a plank position, lift the right leg up, bend your knee, put your foot down, out to the side of your body, close to your elbow, and back. Do the same thing with the other leg.

    20 seconds of rest

7. Sunrise Lunges: Standing, feet wider than shoulder width, squat down, keep the chest up, reach up and over like a sunrise, then kick twice with one leg. Do the same thing on the other side.

    20 seconds of rest

8. Bridge: Balance on your bottom, knees bent, toes in the air but pointing downward, reach up in front of you, hold your abs in as tight as you can, and chop the tree behind you and come back up.

    20 seconds of rest

9. Basketball Pops: Get down in a shuffle stance, touch the toe, or even the knee, and pop turn (jump up while twisting in the air to switch feet positions).

    20 seconds of rest

10. Stretch.
