Toss that sarong: We’ve got the ultimate workout to help you slip on a bikini with confidence. “Each of these exercises targets at least three major muscle groups — so you train smarter, not longer,” says Rael Isacowitz, a Pilates specialist and exercise physiologist based in Costa Mesa, California.

The Result: Swimsuit-worthy abs, plus sleeker arms, butt, and thighs. Do this workout three or four days a week for 20 minutes (complete the entire series of exercises twice), then add another 15 minutes of high-intensity cardio.

To boost the challenge, use light weights where indicated. Include two 45- to 60-minute cardio sessions on your off days and follow a healthy diet, and in just four weeks you’ll be sitting poolside with pride.
