Summer Body Shape-Up Tone Your Trouble Spots
Hi! I am Selene Yeager, Contributing Fitness Editor to Prevention Magazine. This summer wear your swimsuit with confidence. We have got a total body toning routine that targets all those trouble spot areas. So you can get your body beach ready in no time.
This move is called the Sit-Up Fly Bridge. It tones those trouble spots in the front of your torso as well as those in the back in your lower body. To do it, you just need an exercise mat and a pair of dumbbells 3-5 pounds. Position yourself on the mat, your feet are close together and your legs are bent. Lie back and open your arms out wide, keeping your elbows bent.
Squeeze your chest muscles to bring the weights over your chest then come up into a crunch, pause, bring it back down. As soon as your arms are on the ground, squeeze your glutes to raise up into a bridge. Hold the bridge for five seconds, lower back down and go into your next rep.
You want to do 20 reps, total, and you should see results in as little as 2-3 weeks.
For even faster results, combine these toning moves with the diet and cardio workout so you will find at prevention.com/summerbody.
