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.
