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!
