Your next beach vacation is just around the corner, and you bikini just won’t fit? Here are last minute tips so it works with the bikini figure – even last minute. So your imagination of a beach body can quickly become reality!
All beginnings are … easy!
If you want to achieve the perfect bikini figure, you need one thing above all: Motivation and stamina. So that you don’t run out of breath right at the beginning, you should create a training plan. This way you will challeng your body step by step with new training stimuli, but doesn’t overtax it. To get started, it is sufficient to train three times a week and to include specific rest days where your muscles can recover. Your body needs to replenish its energy reserves after a workout. If you take targeted breaks, this is particularly effective. Because: The energy stores are more than filled up in anticipation of upcoming stress. This “supercompensation” gives you power for the following workout!

The best exercises for your bikini figure
If you want to do a lot for your beach body in a short time, you should rely on a mix of cardio and strength training for the whole body. This way you burn a lot of calories and strengthen your entire muscular system. The result: fewer pounds and a beautifully defined, toned silhouette. You can do classic BBP workouts (don’t forget your arms!) to make your problem inches disappear. Combined with challenging High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), which burns a lot of fat quickly and pushes your endurance, you’ll get closer to your bikini figure in leaps and bounds.
The dream team: Sports and healthy nutrition
To make sure your bikini fits like a glove, exercise is only half the battle. You can reach your goal even faster with the right diet. Don’t go for short-term crash diets (yo-yo effect!), but rather for a permanent change of diet. Three healthy meals a day, with a break of around 5 hours between them. Drink at least 2 liters of water or unsweetened tea every day, and more if you are exercising or in hot weather. To lose weight effectively, you should also take a detox day every now and then. Reduce fattening foods such as chocolate, potato chips and alcohol.
Beware of carbohydrates
Especially in the evening, low-carbohydrate meals help you lose weight. Carbohydrates are different lengths of sugar, which are converted into glucose and drive up your blood sugar level. Your body produces insulin to bring it back down. This signals “hunger” to your brain, even if it is no longer in “active mode” in the evening and burns fewer calories. That’s why it’s better to enjoy low carb dishes at a late hour, such as zucchini topped with feta cheese or a colorful salad with chicken strips.
Stay on the ball
The best exercises don’t help much if your inner pig gets in the way. In order to keep it at bay, you should not set your goals too high, but rather enjoy your workout. Maybe a friend of yours would also like to train for her next beach vacation? Then just start jogging together or work out with the Best Friends Workout. Small rewards that you should treat yourself to when you have climbed the next stage, such as when your bikini fits better, will also help you overcome any lack of motivation. For example, go to the movies, take a sauna, buy a lavish bouquet of flowers or relax with a good book. If the workout doesn’t work out at all, just take a break from training. You will see: One day later it works much better again – and in the end, so it works with your bikini figure!
