5 Tips for Getting Your Body Ready for Spring Break

We can finally start saying slow goodbye to winter, which means one thing: Spring Break!!! This is one of the most fun things that happen in a year, so you want to look and feel your best. But what do you do with that winter weight? Here’s a little guide that will help you get ready for the craziest time of the year and make you look absolutely banging during those pool parties.




Do some serious cardio
If you want to lose some of that winter chub and get leaner, more toned and looking top-notch in your spring athleisure, cardio is a must. The optimum cardio schedule would be 5 times a week with sessions ranging from 20 to 60 minutes. This sort of schedule will keep your heart rate elevated enough to burn plenty of calories and help you reach your weight goal. In the end, it all boils down to calories-in-calories-out, and cardio will help you with the latter part by boosting the number of calories you burn during the day. However, cardio can also help you uncover existing muscles and even build some new lean muscle, so it’s a win-win situation.

Lift hard, lift heavy 
If your goal is to give your muscles definition, you can forget running and hit the weight rack. No matter if you’re a guy or a girl, weights can do so much good for your body. And girls, don’t be scared to lift heavy—you’ll not get bulky unless you dedicate your entire life to the gym and proper diet. Weights will also improve your fat-burning capability and accelerate fat loss. So, incorporating 15-30 minutes 2-3 times a week of resistance training is a must in order to get that coveted bikini body you’ll want to show off during spring break.




Combine good workouts with supplements 
If you need some additional help with your weight loss and workouts, you can try out some supplementation. However, keep in mind that supplements work only when combined with proper diet and physical activity, so don’t expect any sort of miracle pill. If you have intense and long workouts, intra workout supplements can help you with quicker recovery, less muscle breakdown and more energy and endurance. When you’re serious about getting a six-pack or a sculpted booty, the aforementioned benefits of supplements will come very handy!

Try Chrono diet
Many girls want to look their best during spring break so they turn to fad diets and starve themselves. This is both ineffective and unhealthy so it’s better to ignore the latest dieting trends altogether. One thing you might want to try, though, is Chrono diet. Chrono diet involves eating certain things at certain times of the day when your body is in the best shape to process nutrients. This type of eating is very natural for the human body and very sustainable—it can truly become your lifestyle. Once you get used to the timing and lack of sugar and processed foods, you will feel full of energy and not hungry at all (unlike with some other diet regimes). And most of all, you will reach your weight goal and be able to fit into those sexy shorts you’ve been eyeing!




Improve hydration
Drink more water, probably a lot more than you’re drinking now. You need at least 70 oz or 2 liters of water per day in order to stay fit and healthy. Proper hydration will also keep your belly fuller, prevent you from reaching for snacks and reduce your candy craving. Additionally, water helps muscle recovery and gives you focus and energy to push through your workouts. And, water is almost always available. If you grab a 24 oz water bottle and keep it next to you, you will get to sip throughout the day and reach your hydration goals.

With this sort of workout and diet regime, you will have a blast on spring break and look better than ever. However, don’t return to your old habits once you come back! Use the momentum to make your improved diet and your regular exercise a nice lifestyle you can live by.
