That first outing in a bikini is a painful process at the best of times, let alone after seeing the torturous images of those lithe super-toned bodies from the women’s volley ball team at the Olympics. We’ve made you your very own special bootcamp to get you looking toned and gorgeous on the beach in no time. We called in the experts: Lee Mullins and Nathalie Bomgren, personal trainers from Bodyism, who have worked with ELLE cover girl Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Bodyism founder James Duigan who counts Elle Macpherson and Hugh Grant among his gorgeous clients (as well as me of course!). Just follow this foolproof program for the next four weeks and you’ll be leaping onto the beach in that bikini.
Perform each exercise once as a circuit, making sure you rest for 15 seconds between each exercise. Repeat the circuit 2 or 3 times.
