It’s that time of year, when shorts get shorter, christmas parties are in full swing and bikinis are classed as acceptable street wear. Well, ok, maybe not the last, but if you’re anything like me – my bikini collection sure is giving my active wear a run for it’s money. To help you feel a little more comfortable showing off your gorgeous bods’ this summer, I’m spilling my “at home bootylicious workout”  for a tight toosh in under 10 minutes! No equipment needed, just some space on your floor, a chair, and away you go.

See you in 10, I’ll have your virgin mojito waiting, trust me you will have earnt it.

The workout

 20 Squats

Stand with feet a little wider than shoulder-width apart, hips stacked over knees, and knees over ankles. Extend arms out straight so they are parallel with the ground or on hips if desired. Send hips backward like you are about to sit. As your knees start to bend. Push your hips down and back, descend as far as you can whilst keeping a straight spine and your chest open.
