Get Your Body Bikini Ready

Posted:

It's almost time to pull out those swim suits, summer dresses, and shorts. So, if you want to have a "swim suit ready" body, here are some workout tips that may surprise you.

We're myth busting here.

Myth #1: Crunches lead to that sought after six pack.

Crunches aren't the best way to tone your abs because they only tone a small portion of that area. Planks are a better way to engage your entire core.

Myth #2: running is hard on your knees.

A Stanford University study found that the knees of older runners were no less healthy than those of people who didn't run. Experts recommend a total body workout, in addition to regular running. That will help build up muscles to support your knees during your runs.

Myth #3: The more days in the gym, the better.

It's not about the hours you clock at the gym, it's about the way you train. If you work out hard every single day, it prevents your muscles from rebounding and prevents you from improving. Scheduling a day of rest between workouts is essential.

Myth #4: Your workout must be at least an hour.

It's not about the length of the workout but the intensity. Experts say shorter work outs are better if you keep the energy up.
