5 Ways to Get Your Booty Bikini Ready for This Summer

The holidays are officially over and spring is on the way! The groundhog says that warmer weather is on the horizon and that means it is time to stop shoving those discount chocolates in your mouth and get pumped for bikini season! If you need a little motivation, here are 5 ways to get your booty bikini ready for this summer!

1. Water

We started out easy on ya! Start flushing out all that excess salt and sugar from the long cold winter. You will be amazed at how much better your skin, body, and booty will look if you start making water a big part of your day! Try challenging yourself to drink a gallon of water every day. It’s really not hard to do and you can find TONS of breakdowns on Pinterest about how to time it out so you aren’t chugging a half gallon of water at ten o’clock before bed! Water helps not only flush toxins but it also helps keep your muscles hydrated so you can recover more quickly from your workouts!

2. Individual Leg Lifts

These are great for toning and burning your booty and abs at the same time! Lie down on your back and pull your feet up close to your booty with you knees bent. Raise your left leg straight up in the air. Now for the motion: squeeze your booty and lift your hips up off the mat or floor, lower back down and then repeat. Again, try and do 20 of these on each side and get them in 3-4 times per day. The strain of this move should be coming from your butt and not your lower back. Switch legs after 20 and do the other side as well!

3. Lunges

Walking lunges are an awesome way to feel the burn and get your booty bikini ready for this summer! Walking lunges are great because you can add weights, do them anywhere, and even incorporate them into everyday tasks. You step straight out in a long motion, bend at the knee until you’re almost touching the floor, and then stand up ass you pull your rear foot up to meet the front one! Easy as that. Alternate sides as you walk through the house, or pick up that baby and go to town! The extra weight can increase the burn and help you get the most out of your exercise. 20 on each side, 3-4 times a day and you’ll be rocking that bikini bottom in style!

4. Kick Backs

These are about as simple as it gets when trying to tone your booty. On your hands and knees, head up, back straight, and kick one leg back while tightening your abs and butt. Make sure you are kicking that leg up high and keeping your muscles engaged, this should burn after the first few!! Doing 25 on each side for 3-4 sets per day will help get your booty bikini ready for the summer!

We all know how hard it can be to stay motivated. If you struggle with motivation, work some rewards into your system. Another great way to stay motivated and stick to your workout plan is by always seeing your goals. Hang that bikini up next to your mirror every day you’ll have to see it and be reminded of why it is important to make some extra time to work out!

5. Squats

The dreaded squat…the fitness move that everyone hates and almost no one can repeatedly complete properly. Try this: standing with your feet wide apart (wider than your shoulders), arms out in front of your chest, send your hips back, bending at the knees, go low enough to touch your elbows to your knees, then back up again. Do 20-30 of these in a set and try to do 3-4 sets per day! If you can squeeze these moves into your day just 3-4 times you’ll have that booty bikini ready in no time! Remember when doing squats to keep your weight on your heels. Don’t cheat forward and keep your back flat and straight when moving! Squeeze those cheeks for an extra burn!

Squats are definitely no fun and they are especially no fun for me when I have little leaks as I do them.  Did you know that over 65 million Americans experience bladder leakage, and half of them are under the age of 50!

Depend

I recently discovered Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit* Briefs for Women and now leaks are no longer an issue.  It’s nice to know that I can go about my everyday life, whether it’s a gym session or just running errands, without worrying about leaks. Depend® Silhouette® Active Fit* Briefs for Women come in black or beige to stylishly complement your wardrobe, they have a lower rise plus they have a thin design for complete comfort.

  60. Eating right first and foremost because it is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise. Doing a lot of stair climbing and planks

  61. Sounds great to me. Although I don’t think anyone wants to see me in a bikini this summer hehe. Eating right and drinking lots of water is sooo important, I have to remember that! This is a great post Robin and very helpful!

  62. I’m a weird one I actually don’t mind squats I feel the burn more

  63. I’m trying to get more cardio in – in the winter it is hard because we can’t get outside as easily, but it is starting to warm up so I can take the kids out for walks again!

  75. I love this suggestions I’ll definitely be adding these to my excercise routine

  76. My friends and I always say, “summer bodies are made in the winter!” Good reminder on the water…It’s hard for me to remember during the cold weather months!

  77. Squats are actually my FAVORITE! Does that make me weird? Lunges are the worst, but really effective!

  78. I’m getting beach ready with my workouts but after reading your post I have to step up my game!

  79. I forgot about the dreaded lunges. Great tips!

  80. Squats are fun. I would do them all day, if I had time. I am definitely one of these crazy moms who is doing squats in the corner of kids music class and in front of the swing in the park. LOL

  81. Squats are the best way to get a firmer bottom! Since I started at a new club I’ve been doing way more squats, walking lunges, etc and the results have been substantial!

  82. Yea….I should probably start getting my body ready lol I have been so lazy and haven’t done any work out whatsoever since baby. I do drink plenty of water though…is that enough? lol

  83. These sound perfect for those that need them. Thanks so much for sharing.

  84. I have such a love hate relationship with squats. They always make such a difference, but they are such a pain to do! Why can’t my bikini body just magically appear? 😉

  85. I NEED to get back to this kind of workout. I need to get my body ready for spring and summer!

  88. I guess it is time to start getting ready for summer after all! Thanks for the tips.

  89. I am drinking my share of water this season. Must try the other 4 tips.

  90. I just started the 21 Day Fix Challenge by BeachBody… and I despise that yellow container!! LOL That’s the carb one. But I am loving the workouts. It’s just the new challenge that my body needed. But you are so right about the water – I was definitely not drinking enough before and what a difference it makes. I am sure half the time I thought I was hungry — I was actually thirsty.

  91. Love this tips. You make it look easy and doable. Didn’t know how many advantages about drinking a gallon of water everyday.

  92. People definitely underestimate the power of water! I notice a difference when I get enough H2O versus when I don’t, it’s definitely evident!

  93. I’m good at drinking plenty of water, but haven’t had much motivation to exercise lately. That shall change! – HilLesha

  94. I am an exercise person, and as a mother of 4, those silhouettes really could come in handy

  95. I agree with the water thing! Water is one of the most important things you can do to feel healthy, and help you get toned for sure.

  96. These are some great tips to gear up for summer. Both me & my husband have a habit of drinking a lot of water all through the day which helps a lot for sure. The Silhouette Active Fit Briefs are something I would love to have as backup too.

  97. I’m definitely not beach body ready yet but I am working on it. Need to start working out soon and get healthier.

  98. I’m not “beach body” ready either. But I still plan to take this body to the beach. I will be doing some of the exercises you recommend to feel more toned and confident.

    I’m glad so many people have found the Silhouette’s helpful for leaks during workouts.

  99. I really need to drink more water so downloaded the Plant Nanny App to help me track my water intake.

  100. I’m good about exercise and drinking plenty of water. I’m also really good about never missing dessert. Apparently that doesn’t help get you bikini ready.
