Bikini Body Countdown program
Every week on Monday you can expect a new video workout with below all the technical information you need to perform properly. Repeat the video workout of week 5 for 3 times on days your schedule allows it best. For an optimal result, try to perform a 30 min. cardio workout 1-2 times per week next to the video workout to lose fat fast.

Per month you can expect 1 LEG workout, 1 ARM workout, 1 CORE workout and we close in the fourth week with a FULL BODY workout. However, all exercises will always make your work on several muscles at the same time.

During the program we will increase level, frequency and weight, but we offer a distinction between beginners and advanced fit girls. So no excuse, every girl can do this! Just listen to your body and challenge yourself every week. Another big PLUS is that all exercises can be performed at home, outdoor or at the gym! To make it more fun you should find a buddy and do it together ;)

What’s important?
1. Make sure you eat properly 1 hour before you start your workout, click here to see what you should consume and when.
2. Take care of your hydration during the breaks of your workout.
3. Be prepared and make sure you have the required fitness equipment on place (TIP: you can use water bottles for dumbells).
4. Bring a towel, because you are about to sweat ;-)
5. Make yourself an awesome workout tracklist with some upbeat music to boost your motivation.
6. Quality over quantity! Slow down the motions for more effective results instead of ripping through the movement. Keep it explosive and 120% input!
7. Take a BEFORE and AFTER picture!
8. Motivate yourself and others by sharing your journey towards your best bikini body every online on Instagram or the Bikini Body Countdown Facebook event and use the hashtags #bikinibodycountdown #foodie_ness.

Skipping
Start position: Stand up with your feet at hip-width apart and keep your elbows by your side.
Movement: Jump around 10 – 15 cm off the ground, just to give the floor enough space to slip under your feet.  Only the balls of your feet should touch the floor and moving the jump rope comes from the wrists and forearms, not the shoulders.
Finish: Repeat the movement and drop the rope.

GO!:  100 reps.

X jumps
