How to Get Swimsuit Ready for Summer

So you want a bikini body?

With summer just 3 months away you’ve got a little over 90 days to get your body ready to rock any swimsuit. No one wants to be worried with extra flab when they’re chilling by the pool or tanning on the beach. Get ready to strut your stuff with confidence by following these helpful tips on getting swimsuit ready for summer.

1. Cut out the junk food

Seriously, cut it out. In order to see results you have to be willing to sacrifice a few things in order to get there. Sweets, soda and fast food taste good for the moment, but do more bad than good in the long run. Take it one step at a time as you cut out junk food and stay consistent. I’m certain you’ll see results and you’ll feel better, too.

2. Drink lots of water

The average adult’s body is about 50-65% of water. It’s important to drink water because it keeps you hydrated, which is essential because just about every cell in your body needs water to function properly. Other benefits include migraine treatment, aid in digestion and aid in weight loss. Drinking water increases the rate at which your body burns fat, and promotes the breakdown and elimination of fat cells.

3. Do the right workouts

I’ve seen people who workout everyday and see no results, which leaves them feeling frustrated. Lack of intensity and overtraining are two of the reasons you’re not seeing any results. When you workout hard your heart rate increases, which moves your body toward the training zone. This is where results will happen! By overtraining you’re not giving your body enough time to recover, which defeats the purpose of a good workout. When you overtrain, your body will not produce the lean muscle mass you want, which in the end burns off muscle; you don’t want that to happen.

4. Get plenty of sleep

Many of my posts have been geared toward the importance of sleep because it’s essential to your fitness transformation. Regardless if you think you can get by with a few hours of sleep each night, you need the right amount to be able to function throughout the day.

5. Buy swimsuits for your body type

Last, but not least buy swimsuits that flatter your body. According to Shape magazine women with an athletic build should buy swimsuits with cutouts because it allows you to still look sexy with a muscular frame. In addition, women who are want to hide their stomachs should buy one-piece swimsuits with a  waist band. This type of swimsuit provides the illusion of a flat tummy and who wouldn’t want that?

You are the key to having your body swimsuit ready for the summer, so hit the gym or the track today and make it happen.
