LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Summer is upon us, but if the thought of slipping into a swimsuit puts your stomach in knots, you may want to try a workout to tighten and tone.

Celebrity fitness trainer Danny Musico, whose roster of A-list clients includes Leonardo DiCaprio and Sylvester Stallone, designed a regimen to get his clients that beach body, even when they don’t have access to equipment. Exercises can be done individually or combined together for a more advanced circuit training workout:

1. Plank: Hold plank for 30 sec to as long as possible to tone your abs, shoulders and thighs.

4. 180-degree Touchdowns: From the squatting position, with your hands placed on the ground between your knees like a frog, jump up turning 180 degrees so you will be facing the opposite way then repeat for either reps of 12 to 15 or 30 sec intervals. You can segway that into…

5. Burpee: From the squatting position of your 180 touchdowns, extend your arms out in front of you, palms on the ground, then thrusting your hips back extending your legs out into a straight position on your toes.

Then return to the squatting position.

Repeat from the start, doing 12 to 15 reps or 30-second intervals of each move.
