Getting Your Body Summer-Ready: 3 Tips to Help

By Virginia Laird

As spring gets in full swing, people across the nation are trying to prepare themselves for grand vacations and trips to the beach. It is during this time that many begin to figure out how to have that summer-ready body. What is a summer body anyway? Most people want nice looking abs, toned legs and a beautiful tan. Fitness gurus have offered several suggestions on how to get your body ready for your summer outings, including:

  • Make planks part of your daily routine
  • Squats are a summer body’s best friend
  • If you want a tan, sunless is best

Make Planks Part of Your Daily Routine

Planks are one of the best workouts for anyone, at any age, and any fitness level. These are a low stress exercise which can tone the entire core. Chiropractors suggest that planks can improve the posture. Health and wellness experts advise that planks can help manage and prevent back pain as they strengthen the core. Start planking right away to help you get ready for summer.

Squats are a Summer Body’s Best Friend

Squats are one of the best exercises you can do for toning the thighs. This exercise is great as it is easy to make more challenging as needed. If you're a beginner, try squatting with no additional weights. If you're an experienced squatter you may choose to do squats while holding a kettlebell or adding other weights. Squats tone all the way from the knee through the buttocks. Add squatting to your daily routine to help get your legs toned and ready for shorts season.

If You Want a Tan, Sunless is Best

While you may want that fresh looking tan straight from the tanning bed or from laying out for hours, it is probably not the best tan to have. Health and wellness experts advise that tanning beds and too much sun can be the culprit of skin cancer. However, there are multiple sunless tanning options on the market. If you're looking for your perfect tan, it may be time to do a little research and find one that fits you. While some sun can be healthy for the body, it is wise to always wear sunscreen when spending time outdoors.

With this information, you are now armed with the best exercises and tan advice necessary to get that summer beach body ready to go. Now is the time to get started sculpting the body you long to have. Who knows, you may get excited about swimsuit shopping this year!
