If getting a bikini body is your goal, you have come to the right place! Not only will these tips help you get a bikini body fast if you are on your last weeks before summer, but these bikini body tips will help you stay in bikini-shape all year!
Getting a bikini ready body will always require some amount of hard work and dedication, but my job is to make that process as simple as possible for you. Therefore, I have designed this article to have tips that will help you get the aesthetic body you want, but without forcing you to change your entire lifestyle.
How to Get a Bikini Body Fast
Take a look at my tips that can help you maintain a bikini body all year:
Step 1: Alter Your Diet the Right Way
Whether you’re trying to slightly improve your current bikini body, lose weight, or increase your muscle definition, you need to understand that your diet is the most crucial aspect. You can work out all you want, exercise each day, and push your body to the limit, but if you don’t clean up your diet, you won’t make the progress you are looking for.
However, that doesn’t mean you need to stick to some ridiculously strict diet. Instead, focus on some basic diet goals.
For starters, make sure you eat the right carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are an essential macronutrient for your body and they provide the energy for all the activities you are going to be doing. Additionally, research has indicated that low carb diets for weight loss do not promote weight loss any better than balanced diets if your goal is to lose weight.
Try to consume your carbohydrates in the form of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and legumes.
Additionally, you are going to consume plenty of healthy protein sources. Protein has the highest thermogenic effect of any food, and it is vital for maintaining healthy lean muscle mass. My advice is to consume vegan protein sources as much as possible because animal protein, specifically red meat, is high in saturated fat which leads to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
Lastly, make sure you are consuming adequate amounts of unsaturated fat. This can be as simple as adding plenty of olive oil onto a salad, or consuming seeds, nuts, and fatty fish during your meals or snacks.
Lastly, make sure you are monitoring your caloric intake. If necessary review food labels and make sure that you’re not eating more than your daily caloric needs.
Even vegan foods come with calories, and it’s possible to go over your calorie threshold by eating calorie-dense vegan snacks like brownies and cookies that sometimes come with as much as 750-calories per serving.
If you are trying to lose weight to get your bikini body, I suggest you aim to maintain a 500-700 calorie deficit per day, so you will lose 2 pounds per week or less. This is a healthy amount of weight loss for those trying to get a bikini ready body.
If you are trying to gain muscle mass, you should consume about 500 calories more per day than you are burning.
Step 2: Exercise!
The popular saying in the fitness industry “abs are made in the kitchen” might be true, but that doesn’t mean that regular exercise doesn’t play a crucial role in getting a bikini-ready body.
Depending on whether you prefer to go to a fitness center and do weight training or do some other type of activities, there are tons of ways you can exercise.
If you don’t like going to the fitness center, there’s plenty of indoor activities that are fun and creative. Rock climbing, badminton, and aerobic classes are good examples.
You can also do outdoor activities, such as getting one of the best weighted vests and going on hikes (if the weather permits it).
Trapeze, pole fitness, and martial arts are all unusual ways of staying fit, but really challenge your stamina, core, and upper body strength.
If you want to workout at home, an awesome bikini body workout program you can follow is Ali Holman’s 20-Minute Fit program. This is a 6-week program of 20-minute workouts that will definitely have you ready for bikini season!
Whatever the type of exercise you choose, organize your day, and try to fit a daily workout in each day, in some form.
If you’re finding it hard to push yourself as your mood and incentive dip, why not get someone to give you a boost? Trainers such as London personal fitness trainers will ensure that you stick to your fitness and diet goals. They will also provide you with support when you need it, and cater your plan to your schedule.
Getting a personal trainer is a guaranteed way to get that bikini body, stay in shape, or stay healthy with exercise. The best thing about getting a personal trainer is all you need to do is follow the plan.
Whatever your solution is, make sure you are exercising frequently!
Step 3: If You Have Cellulite, Don’t Worry About It!
I had to add this to the article because I know that cellulite can be a concern when you are getting ready to show off your bikini body.
However, only Instagram fitness models don’t have it, and that’s only because Photoshop has become too easy to use over the years.
Cellulite shouldn’t cause you any image issues or cause you to worry too much at all!
Cellulite is a difficult concept because contrary to what you might have been told, cellulite is not just caused by fat. Cellulite is a condition that affects the appearance of the skin, mainly being caused by fat deposits in certain areas.
It doesn’t matter if you’re an avid fitness freak with sub 10% body fat, you can still have cellulite.
Although you should not care about the appearance of cellulite, if you do, there are options.
While cellulite cannot be banished completely no matter what popular media outlets want you to believe, certain methods can help you remove cellulite from your bikini body.
In Australia, AKA the land of the bikini, effective body sculpting in Sydney is very popular for removing cellulite. Likewise, you can also try DIY coolsculpting at home as well, but it is often less effective.
Furthermore, one of the most useful ways to reduce cellulite is by foam rolling the affected area.
Foam rolling is a form of self-massage which is highly effective at improving circulation, oxygenating your blood, improving the condition of your muscles, and much more. Foam rolling can restore and improve elasticity and youth in your skin, maintaining its health overall.
Since cellulite can predominately affect the areas of the pelvic region and lower body, foam rolling is a perfect option. Foam rolling certainly can be painful, but it is effective!
You could also try using a percussive massage therapy gun.
Finally, proper hydration can help you cleanse your system of toxins and speed up your metabolism for faster cellular regeneration. Drinking green tea before or after exercise is one of the best decisions you can make for hydration and detoxing toxins.
Additionally, you can aid the battle against cellulite by sticking to a day and nighttime skincare routine. Use only natural oils, crèmes, and compounds devoid of harmful chemicals.
While skincare products might not have a significant effect overall, they can help you reach your goals faster.
If you use these tips, you can reduce the appearance of cellulite on your bikini-ready body!
