Your Bathing Suit Survival Guide: Super-Speedy Toning Tricks
If You Have 1 Minute
You Can: Stand taller and look thinner!
What to Do: "The warrior pose makes me feel like a strong, confident woman," says Adrienne Reed, an award- winning yoga instructor and creator of the Power Yoga for Athletes DVD. "It works your shoulders -- an instant way to feel taller." Hold the pose for 1 minute.
- Warrior pose: Stand with feet hip-width apart and lunge forward with left leg. Turn right foot out so left heel aligns with arch of right foot. Raise arms over your head, palms facing each other, shoulders relaxed, away from ears. Hold position and take three deep breaths. Repeat on the other side.
What to Eat: Whip up a creamy strawberry protein shake in an instant. It'll fill you up now and even help you burn fat while you relax at the beach, says Daniella Chace, author of More Smoothies for Life.
- To make: Blend 1 cup fat-free milk, 1 cup frozen strawberries, and 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese until smooth.
