What You Need to Know to Get Swimsuit Ready
By Virginia Laird
Swimsuit season can be both exciting and stressful. The thought of chilling by the pool can offer some stress relief. However, the idea of spending a great deal of time in your swimsuit can cause anxiety. Fitness experts advise there are several ways to help you feel good about the time you spend in your swimsuit this spring, including:
- Use a kettlebell with your workouts
- Know your body type and what looks good on it
- Eat a well-balanced diet
Use a Kettlebell with Your Workouts
Fitness experts recommend adding a kettlebell to your workout to add a little resistance. Research suggests that resistance training can be more beneficial when toning the muscles. It is wise to know that fitness experts suggest that using weights when training can have a longer effect on burning fat. As you prepare for swimsuit season by hitting the gym, make sure you add kettlebells to your workout. If you don't know where to start or what exercises are beneficial with the kettlebell, check with your local gym for help from fitness instructors and personal trainers.
Know Your Body Type and What Looks Good On It
One of the biggest battles in feeling good in your swimsuit, is knowing your body and what looks good on it. As you prepare to sport a swimsuit this spring and summer it is imperative to find one that works well with your body type. No matter how hard you work to get in shape and toning your muscles (for time at the pool) you will have moments of vulnerability. These are the times when you won't feel good enough. Rather than allowing these times to take over and keep you away from all the fun, know what will best suit your body. As long as you are comfortable in what you have on, you shouldn't worry about what others think. Instead you should feel great about the hard work you put into getting ready to wear your swimsuit.
Eat a Well-Balanced Diet
As you prepare yourself for spending plenty of time at the pool you may be ready to shed some pounds. Fitness experts recommend that following a diet that is well-balanced is one sure way to slim up. Most well-balanced diets include plenty of veggies and fruit, as well as lean proteins. Lean proteins are generally defined as chicken and fish. As you stick to a well-balanced diet you may be able to notice your ability to slim up and get more prepared for the impending pool party this spring.
Now is the time to begin making the changes necessary to help give you the confidence you need to enjoy your spring and summer at the pool.
