It takes just four weeks to get bikini ready. Here’s how to tone up your wobbly bits in a hurry.
Before You Begin The Plan:
• You’ll need to get: A fitness ball and a pair of 3kg and 4kg dumb-bells (or two two-litre bottles of water if you don’t have the kit).
• Warm up well: Make sure you jog and stretch for five minutes, both before and after your exercise session.
A month is plenty of time to get in shape, says personal trainer Joe Fournier, author of The Red Carpet Workout (Headline Book Publishing) ‘If I’m working on a film set, I rarely have longer to tone up the stars. Your muscles react well to exercise if you’re consistent, so keep it up through the month.’

• Bicep Curl: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent and arms at your sides, holding 4kg dumb-bells, with palms facing forwards and elbows straight. Curl your arms up towards your shoulders, keeping your back straight. Slowly lower your arms to your sides.
