10 Tips To Get Your Body Summer Ready. Summer is just around the corner. This though doesn’t need to put you in a panic mode. There is still time to get that summer body. The following tips can help you get ready to show off what you have been hiding under layers of cothes.
1. Work Out
If you are looking to tone up your body, don’t just improvise and expect great results. Create an effective workout routine and stick to it on daily basis. Exercise is one of the best ways to shed some kilos, relieve stress, fight fatigue and anxiety. Walking, jogging, running, swimming, and yoga are all great exercises to try.
2. Find The Right Diet
Abs are made in the kitchen. Your approach to your diet is perhaps the most important of all the things you do and as with your training you need to know what your % of muscle to fat is, because this will define what, how much and when you eat.
3. Eat More Fruits and Veggies
Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables to detox your body, improve your health and keep your weight under control. From asparagus to strawberries, there are many spring fruits and vegetables that you can use in your meals and drinks each day. Fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins and minerals and they are super versatile.
4. Drink Extra Water
Skimping on water can reduce the effectiveness of your workouts because even mild dehydration can affect your performance and fat-burning potential. If you need another reason to drink up, swallow this: the best way to rid yourself of excess water weight is to flush your body with water.
5. Reduce Your Alcohol Intake
If you’re used to having a glass of wine or pint of beer every night, try cutting back to two or three nights a week. You’ll reduce your total calorie intake and set yourself up for a better night’s sleep to energize you for your workout the next day.
6. Stand Up Taller
Tuck your hips underneath and tightening up your stomach as if you were going to be punched. Improving your posture will instantly make you look thinner, even if you haven’t lost a pound yet. Training your body to hold everything in once you’re in a swimsuit is a great trick.
7. Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliate your skin twice a week to remove dead skin cells and ensure silky skin. The bikini season is almost here so you want to make sure your body looks awesome. When exfoliating, pay more attention to your elbows, knees and soles which tend to be drier no matter the season.
Low temperatures and inside heating make our skin really dry and dehydrated. Make sure to always moisturize your skin so it looks smooth and healthy when you wear skirts, dresses, and shorts. If you don’t already have a favorite lotion, coconut oil is a great natural moisturizer.
Make time for rest and recovery; chances are as panic sets in you will try and exercise more and eat less. In principal this isn’t bad. Make sure you have one full day off exercising, catch up on sleep, go out with friends, whatever you like to do that isn’t diet and exercise related.
10. Remain Positive
Stay focused but don’t stress about getting the perfect beach body. It is better to focus on achieving all-around health and fitness than a ‘perfect’ body. High levels of stress can drastically reduce the amount of hormones in your system that aid fat loss and boost muscle recovery after training.
