3 Helpful Tips for Getting Swimsuit Ready
By Virginia Laird
Spring is in the air, or at least the excitement of the warmth it will bring. And, as always, this invites the dream of spending hours on end at the pool. While this can be a dream, putting your swimsuit on may be quite a different story. Before turning your nose up at this thought, fitness experts have offered a few suggestions to help you get your body ready to rock your swimsuit. A few of these tips include:
- Give up soda now
- Make planks part of your workout routine
- Give up your snacking habit
Give Up Soda Now
Although soda may be a tasty beverage, it is not helpful when trying to get ready for swimsuit season. Research suggests that consuming too much can bloat the body which can be painful as well as cause weight gain. As you prepare yourself for spring, and all things swimsuit season, it is time to give up soda and start consuming more water. It is suggested that you should drink at least half of your body weight in ounces each day of water to maintain proper hydration. As you drink plenty of water your body will be able to flush out toxins, help curb your appetite, and help you shed a few pounds.
Make Planks Part of Your Workout Routine
With swimsuit season around the corner, toning your abs may be a top priority. Fitness experts recommend planking as one of the best exercises for shaping up your stomach muscles. Planking is also known to strengthen the entire core, therefore your body will be toned throughout this entire midsection, including the abdomen. With a variety of ways to plank, it can stay fun and exciting. Check here for the proper form of planking.
Give Up Your Snacking Habit
Most who feel the need to spend a little extra time in the gym to get ready for their swimsuit feel as though they should shed some weight. Rather than letting this be an uphill battle, health and wellness experts suggest that watching what you eat each day can help you reduce your calories and make some progress. For millions across the nation, snacking has become a habit rather than a necessity. When there is a lack of something to do, many reach for a snack. However, as you prepare yourself for swimsuit season, cutting out the snacks should be a priority. Start today limiting your snacks and sticking to only the best food to help keep you healthy and on your way to a slimmer you.
Now you are ready to begin your path to a more toned and slim body, which you are ready to show off during swimsuit season.
