One week to a bikini bod!


 

Get tank top-ready arms
“Arm muscles can tone up fast,” says New York City-based personal trainer Shannon Sodano. Grab some small weights and do three sets of 15 reps of your fave arm exercises (like bicep curls and tricep extensions). Even old-fashioned push-ups will work.

Run stairs for your booty
Talk about a challenge. Running stairs is sooo good for you and tough beyond words. Plus, it automatically works your glutes more than runnin’ on flat land. Head to a local stadium and aim to jog up and down the stairs for at least 20 minutes.

Act like you have a trainer
Trainers get paid to kick your butt into shape. That’s why we asked trainer Jenny Skoog to share her ideal workouts for a week. The truth? It’s super tough, but it also gets you lean. If you’re just starting to work out, cut the Sunday, Monday and Friday sessions in half.

Sunday: 60 minutes of running
Monday: Strength training for 45 minutes, yoga for 45 minutes
Tuesday: High-intensity interval training. Think: 10 all-out 1-minute sprints with 1 minute recovery
Wednesday: 45 minutes low-intensity cardio, like the elliptical or hiking
Thursday: 30 minutes moderate to heavy strength training
Friday: 60 minutes high-intensity interval training, like kickboxing with jump rope intervals
Saturday: 30 minutes of yoga

Eat right trick: Curb salt 
“If you cut the salt from your diet, you will look much better in just a few days,” says trainer and health expert Scott Malin, who works with celebs in L.A. Salt makes your bod retain water, which can make you look bloated.

Phew! The holidays can be mega stressful. How do you unwind?


 
 

Muscle weighs more than fat, so that’s why you gain weight instead of losing it when you workout regularly.
