Lazy Girl Hacks: Fitness Edition – 5 Exercises To Get You Ready For Summer4:30 PM
Let's be real–finding an excuse to skip the gym is basically the easiest thing to do everyday. To keep the excuses to a minimum, we've got some tips to keep you on track + a great and quick at home workout that will get you ready for bikini season!
Tip 1: Keep your workouts short. You can always do a short and intense workout, which can ultimately be better for you instead of a long drawn out workout where you don't push yourself! We are talking a 10 minute max workout..that's it!
Tip 2: Start your day with a workout! That way you get it out of the way and then you don't have a chance to skip it later. :)
Tip 3: Kill two birds with one stone by combining strength and cardio training in one workout. You can do abs, squats, lunges and push-ups all with a mix of cardio!
Tip 4: Schedule a fitness date with your friends. That way, you are held accountable and have to stick to the game plan. :)
Tip 5: Get your gym bag ready the night before. Then there is no rush (which can ultimately lead you to skip)!
Tip 6: Have a routine! If your workout schedule feels like second nature, you won't be so tempted to skip it.
Tip 7: Do you often find yourself too tired to hit the gym? Make sure you stay caffeinated! A few sips of coffee or green tea will make sure you get your energy back on track.
Tip 8: Follow fitness stars on social media to find some inspiration and set some goals!
Tip 9: Our favorite..Reward yourself! :) When you reach a certain goal, it's important to treat yourself. Whether it's a meal of your choice, new clothes or workout gear (like this cute monogrammed tank top), it's important to give yourself some credit after putting in the work. :)
Tip 10: Make sure you are getting enough rest every night. And let's be honest, it's a great excuse to be lazy a little longer!
Don't have time for the gym today? This at home workout is quick and sure to give you a summer body (as long as your consistent)! :)
