Aerobics to the rescue
Aerobics is such an amazing type of workout because it costs you nothing. You don’t have to buy any equipment, you don’t need to subscribe to any online workout service and you don’t need to spend too much time doing a good workout session.
Aerobics focuses on fast body movements, increasing your heart rate (which is the key to burning fat) and also, wakes up dormant muscles that are in atrophy. Aerobics is technically cardio, but it can be a mix of bodyweight exercises such as squats, lunges and press-ups, etc. To make your workout sessions better, buy a yoga mat, steps, tension cords and bands, as well as some good workout clothes.
Eating and sleeping
What could be easier than eating and sleeping your way to the ultimate beach body? No seriously, all you need to do is to watch your diet and get adequate sleep to start losing weight. The key is to add more oily and fatty foods, while limiting your complex carb intake. Cut out the junk like cakes, biscuits, ice cream and cookies, etc. You need to eat more vegetables, fish such as sea bass and salmon. As well as, drinking more water and eating more fruit, you should also get enough sleep. Take no chances, get to bed at 9:30 or 10 pm. On average it takes us about 30-minutes to 1-hour to get to sleep. If you wake up at 7 am, which you should have enough time to get a morning workout in before work, then you will just about manage a 7-8-hour sleeping pattern.
You don’t want to do exercise with low reps. That is how you build muscle, not how you tone and define your body. This is how Zac Efron prepared for Baywatch, by doing exercises in the 8-12 rep range. He achieves his ripped body by doing a mixture of weight training and calisthenics i.e. bodyweight exercises. You should focus on full-body calisthenics, such as squats, sit-ups, press-ups. However to achieve more shape, you should do weight training such as barbell curls, machine calf raises and tricep pushdowns. Remember, to keep the reps above 8 so you don’t pack on the muscle, but still achieve those curves and toned physique.
These three recommendations are sound and safe. As always talk to your medical professional for what will work for you if you’ve got other things going. These three tips can help you to get that amazing beach body, so in a couple of weeks you can lay on the beach feeling confident and satisfied.
