Countdown to Bikini Ready: Top 5 Workouts to Get that Beach Bod
Be proud of your body as you're soaking up the sun with these simple workouts that will tone, strengthen, and sculpt
Start by lying on your back. Then prop yourself up on your elbows and engage your abs. Straighten your back so you can lift your legs up at an angle (about 45 degrees from the mat). Circle your legs in a clockwise direction, then go counter clockwise, trying five circles each way. For an easier modification, bend your legs instead of keeping them straight.
Teaser with Circle Arms
Sit on your tailbone with arms straight out in front of you, engage your abs and lift your chest so your torso is at a 45-degree angle from the mat. Then lift up bent legs so your shins are parallel to the mat (with toes pointed) and balance on your tailbone in this modified "V" position. While you're balancing, circle your arms in a clockwise direction, and then go counter clockwise. Repeat 20 times in each direction while keeping the rest of your body still.
Start by lying on your back, with your hands behind your head, and your bent elbows facing out. Make sure you press your lower back into the mat as you lift the right leg up towards the sky and keep the left leg low and parallel to the floor. Keeping your upper body lifted a few inches off the floor (while also keeping your abs engaged and drawn down into the mat), switch your legs up and down 20 times.
