Bathing Suit Bottom Workout

Bathing Suit Bottom Workout featured

For the past four days I’ve been snorkeling with sea turtles, munching on fresh island pineapple, and sporting my bikinis on the beautiful Hawaiian island, Maui! Which brings me straight to the focus of today’s workout.

I get it, putting on a swimsuit can be nerve-racking. You’re practically naked… in public! On a day-to-day basis, the parts of our bodies we feel insecure about are easily hidden underneath clothes. Put on a swimsuit and they’re bared for all to see.

Ladies, it doesn’t have to be this way! So let me start by saying, this is not your typical “Bikini Body Workout.” Oh no no no! Did you forget you’re reading a post on Life in Spandex?! Here, all body shapes and sizes are celebrated. What I want you to focus on is being the best YOU you can be – both inside and out.

One of the easiest ways to feel confident is to feel strong! That is why I put such an emphasis on strength training. The best part… by focusing on building muscle and eating nutritious food, you’ll improve your metabolism, even out your hormone levels, burn fat, and reduce your risk for chronic disease!

I have my own body insecurities. Who doesn’t?! But there’s one part of my body I love showing off in my bikini. Yup, it’s my butt! It’s one of the most toned parts of my body from years of dance, running, Stair Master intervals, squats, barre, and isolated strength exercises. I work hard for it, so, yes, I feel proud! But you don’t need years of dance to create a rounder, firmer derriere. One of the quickest ways to sculpt your backside is through isolated strength exercises focused on all parts of your booty – gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus. I put together a workout for you that does just that!

  2. Yep I definitely need to start doing this workout. My behind is my weakness and the hardest part of my body to get toned. Hopefully this workout will help to firm it up just a but 😉

  3. You know, if I scroll through your pictures really quickly, it looks like you’re dancing! lol My cardio boxing trainer incorporates some of these moves into our workout.

  4. I love this, and I also love how motivating it is. There is definitely no shaming in this article (which I feel is particularly hard to do when it comes to work-out blogs) so thank you for that! And I can’t wait to integrate some of these tonight during my workout!

  5. This is a great workout! I have to admit I’ve been spending more time working on my glutes and I’m happy to see some results. These moves will probably have me in pain, but they really do work! I pinned this workout for future reference 🙂

  6. I need to try your workout! I’m trying to add some more strength in, but no overdo it. I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself and then burn out too quickly. Ugh! Anyway, you look absolutely fabulous! I would say my favorite part of my body is my stomach. While it’s not where I want it to be right now, I know it can change and shape how I want it to because I’ve done it before. I remember when I was at my heaviest, I thought my stomach would never go flat and I was wrong, it did! So, that is why it’s my favorite. We let our minds control what the outcome will be and our bodies surprise us!
