Getting beach booty ready has never been so easy.
Hot sunny beach days have arrived and it’s time to throw on that ol’ bikini and get your swim on. Though the only thing you really need at the beach is confidence (and SPF), these three easy workouts will round out (get it?) your pre-beach fitness routine. Add them to your next workout and I can guarantee you will not be bummed. (Did it again.)
Start in a tabletop position with your hands below your shoulders and knees below your hips. Flex your abs to create strength through your core. Your back should be flat.
Keeping your abs tight, slowly lift your right leg up toward the sky. Keep your leg bent.
Push your leg through until your thigh is parallel to the ground. Hold for one second.
Bring your leg back down to starting position, while keeping abs tight. Do not round or arch back. Continue with the left leg and switch off legs for 30 seconds.
Start by lying on your back, arms by your side, and legs bent at the knees, feet flat on the ground.
Pull your hips toward the sky, creating a straight line through your body. Squeeze your glutes and hamstrings. Hold for one second.
While keeping your hips toward the sky, lift your right leg towards the sky. Hold for one second.
Bring your right leg back down.
Return to starting position and repeat using left side. Continue to switch off legs for 30 -45 seconds.
Pretzel Leg Lift
Begin by sitting on the ground with your left leg in front of you, right leg facing behind. Both legs should be bent at the knee at 90 degrees. Place your palms on the ground.
As you tighten your abs, lift the bent right leg up so it is parallel to the ground. Hold for one second.
Extend the bent knee out so the entire leg is parallel to the ground. Hold for one second.
Bring the extended leg back in to a 90 degree angle, still lifted. Hold for one second. Gently bring the bent leg back down. Continue for 30 seconds and then switch legs.
