Bikini Ready Body: 3 Exercises To Get You Set For Summer

Spring is here, and that means summer is right around the corner, and THAT means bathing suits! If you’re looking to get your body bikini ready we’ve got the exercises just for you. Fitness expert, Lacey Stone (that’s me), takes us through three exercises to get in shape in time for summer.

Bikini- Ready Exercises

1) Elevated Single Leg Squat: Great exercise to get that booty in shape! Do 15 reps of one leg then switch and do 15 of the other. By the end you will be feeling the burn. Great for your glutes, hamstrings and inner thighs.

2) Tricep Dip: Make sure hands are securely gripping the bench. Keep feet at a 45 angle on the floor, and dip down until your bottom almost touches the floor. Do 15 reps and feel the burn! To make this exercise even more intense, lift one leg. Great for sculpting those arms for summer.

3) Push Up/ Star Jump!: Bring out your inner star with this fun and challenging exercise. Do a full push-up and then bring it to the next level by boosting off the ground into a star-jump. This hits all the major spots on the body (arms-core-legs), and gives a good kick of cardio to take it all to the next level!
All of these Exercises can be done in or outside of a gym. If not in a gym, make sure to use a sturdy bench when doing the squat and tricep dips. Each exercise should be done for 10- 15 reps (depending on your level). They should be done in a circuit (squat-tricep-star jump) and the circuit should be done 3 times!
Get that body bikini ready!

*INSPIRATION – “DREAMERS”

I’m a dreamer. I can’t help it. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t because BIG dreams can bring BIG drama… Lots of hard work, rejection, majoooorrr checks on patience, and the dreaded word … failure. If you want to be amazing, to be the BEST at something, failure is part of the equation.

I had a big “a’ha moment” about a week ago… I realized I was so afraid of failing that I wasn’t taking any chances. I wasn’t really going for it because I didn’t want to mess up. I was caught up in being so perfect that I wasn’t taking the risks necessary to differentiate myself from the pack. I forgot what had gotten me where I am in the first place, me. I’m different, I’m a little bonkers, a risk taker, yes a little crazy at times but that’s what makes me, me. We all have our inner core of who we are. The thing that no one else can copy or take away from us because it’s our essence.

Why am I telling you this… Because I feel free. I realized my fear of failing or making mistakes was getting in the way of my true potential. To be great, to be unstoppable is to fail. There can be no light without darkness, just as there can be no wins without losses. Making mistakes is what we learn from, what makes us grow into the people we were born to be.

This month I’m going to focus on not just staying in the game… I’m focusing on dominating the game, maybe losing sometimes but knowing in my heart that I SWUNG for the rafters… Because I’m a home run hitter, I’m a dreamer. Do you hear me, do you get what I’m saying? Are you a dreamer? Then DOMINATE… Play to win.

*Lacey & Jessica Talk LOVE

* QUOTE-tastic

“Strive to be of value rather than success.”  This famous quote comes from Mr. Albert Einstein. What is success any way… Money, Fame? If you strive to be of value you win every time.

Thank YOU,
Lacey
