Get Fit for Summer: The Bikini Body Boot Camp

Get ready for the beach with this calorie-scorching workout with butt-boosting, core-strengthening, and shoulder-sculpting exercises.
Speed Up Your Slim-Down

To maximize results in minimum time, do 30 minutes of your favorite form of cardio -- biking, hiking, running, swimming, walking -- twice a week. To really get your rear in gear, make trainer Cari Shoemate's butt-kicking walk-jog hill workout, below, one of your sessions. "Running on an incline is a hybrid strength-and-cardio workout," she says. "You'll engage your calves, hamstrings, and butt." The upshot: long, lean legs and a high, firm backside.
