Getting a beach body is hard, and most people don’t feel motivated enough to start making changes to their daily regimen, eat clean, and set up a workout routine on a regular basis. If you’re completely out of shape and have gained a few pounds over the years, it will take you longer to shed fat and start getting leaner and stronger. This is the reason it’s crucial to set achievable goals. If you want to lose as much as 100 pounds but it is the middle of July and you’ll be going on vacation to Mexico in mid-August, it’s very likely that you’re unable to lose that much weight in a month’s time. What you can do, however, is make small but effective changes that can help you keep working out even when you’re on vacation.
Aerobic and fitness might not be enough if what you’re focused on is looking the best in your swimsuit. Since not all people have enough money to go to the gym every day, we suggest creating a workout routine at home. While most individuals like to say that they do not have enough time to fit any sort of exercise in their schedule, we feel compelled to disagree. Anyone can find just one hour per day that they can use to watch TV or perform any other activity that might be undertaken by a couch potato. If you’re so set on the idea of watching the news for one to two hours every evening, what’s stopping you from making some exercised while you do this?
We’ve seen that the most efficient way of getting your summer body is focusing both on cardio and strength training. For example, you could dance for thirty minutes or watch some Zumba or aerobic lessons online for just as much time while you work out. Take a short break after half an hour and continue with your strength training, which in this case could be lifting weights or performing a series of body-resistance exercises. If you also want to tone up your legs, you can get a pair of weights that can be attached to your ankle with the help of Velcro straps. Finally, there’s nothing like six-pack abs, so just do some crunches, but be sure to take it easy in the beginning and start with as many as twenty to thirty per day. Gradually increase this number as your resistance enhances.
Be sure to correlate all this exercise with small changes in your diet. If you’re not a vegetarian or vegan, have your fill with egg whites, lean meats such as fish and poultry and eat as many fruits and vegetables as you can. Grains are excellent sources of fiber, so perhaps you’d also like to add some brown rice. To avoid getting vitamin E-deficient, eat nuts and seeds, at least once in a while. Stay away from fizzy, sugary drinks as often as possible and order your food judiciously, especially when you are at a restaurant with the rest of your family.
