Working Out For Bikini Season

Have You Started Working Out For Bikini Season?

With Summer just a few months away, many women have already cranked their workouts into high gear to attain a bikini-ready body, or at least tone up for all the tanks, shorts, and sundresses they'll be wearing. Health and fitness magazines are on it too; almost every subscription I've received in the mail this month has a four- to eight-week program on how to sculpt yourself beach-body-ready.

Now that sunnier skies are on the horizon, I want to know if you are ramping up your diet and workout regimen in time for the season . . .

For this year, I'm just trying to look decent in a one-piece.

There's no way I'm getting into a bikini this year... Maybe next year! I still have far too much weight to lose before I will go out in public with only tiny pieces of fabric covering me...

I started working out 2 years ago for bikini season 2010. I'm almost ready...

I started to work out in December, and it was mainly because I had a shirt on for X-mas that did not flatter me at all (lower belly). I saw that I needed to lose weight, and bikini season was defiantly in the back of my mind. I recently tried on a new bikini and I am LOVING the results so far! =)

I'm not doing anything different for bikini season because I work out pretty religiously as it is.

I exercise regularly throughout the year but my eating style is what changes. Winter time-pig out mode. My motivation is a Las Vegas trip in July. I'm trying to ramp up with some P90X but the diet part, alas, is the hardest. I'm my bikini early as more motivation!

I always work out but I have to buckle down to a level I don't maintain year round if I'm going to be in a swimsuit so yeah, I will probably be extra hardcore come swimsuit season. I'm not afraid to admit that I fluctuate a bit.

I stay in bikini-ready shape year round, but I'm doing some extra strength training so I look extremely good in my suit when I'm out on the beach in Mexico next month.

Yes! I'm having a pool party for my birthday so I want to look my best. I've upped my strength training and reduced my caloric intake, although my cardio is pretty much the same as before.

No, I still have the same routine. I don't want to stress myself over this right now. My final exams are much more important to me.

I'm not doing it for the bikini, but for the wedding dress :) That and to also prepare myself for all the outdoor activities I'm going to be doing for the honeymoon. Being in proper shape is more my concern.

I've been trying to get in shape for years, the last few months have been the best I've ever done. I'm not doing it for bikini season, I'm doing it for my health and self esteem. I never stay in a bikini long if at all, I'm really fair and burn in minutes.

Ehh... I'd say I'm certainly using all the bikini-ready articles as inspiration, but seeing as I'm not planning on going anywhere hot enough this year, let alone anywhere with a pool, I'd say that the motivation of an ACTUAL bikini body is far from my mind!
