Set The Bar

Set yourself up for success with this routine from our Beach Babe 2 collection. This workout shows you where you’re starting and how to track your progress. We know this workout is so important for your fitness journey that we’re sharing it with you for free! It’ll help keep you focused on your goals while seeing the amazing improvement you’re achieving. We suggest doing this routine every 2 weeks to see your fitness evolution. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your body responds to the Tone It Up lifestyle! We even have a super handy chart to keep track of your progress, too! Grab it HERE!

Total Body Tone Up

Your body has these things called proprioceptors that help keep you stable during tricky moves. Activating these by doing balancing moves prepares you for more difficult exercises later on. Plus, these moves sculpt your core and sexy waistline! This workout has tons of balancing components added to toning moves, so you’ll work those proprioceptors while strengthening your gorgeous muscles! Do this workout up to 3 times a week.

Bikini Abs Workout

Having a strong core is essential to maintaining perfect form during all other moves. This routine sculpts your abs from every angle to strengthen your core and give you that sleek waistline of your dreams. Just remember to keep your abs engaged by bringing your belly button to your spine for maximum toning. Go through this routine up to 3 times a week.

Want to bump it up?

Feeling strong and rocking these workouts?! Congrats, girl! Now, it’s time to bump up the intensity. Once you’ve been doing these routines for a few weeks or months, you can push yourself a little harder by using slightly heavier weights. If you were using 5 pounds, try bumping it up to 8. And if this gets too difficult, you can always drop back down to the lower set for the remaining reps (aka a drop set). As you get stronger, you’ll be able to use the heavier weights for more of the workout to maximize your toning and speed up your metabolism even more.

Now that you’ve gotten started on your workouts, it’s time to get your nutrition on point! We always say, abs are made with your Tone It Up workouts (like the ones above!), and REVEALED with the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan! Join HERE for thousands of delish, nutrient-packed recipes that help you reach your fitness goals!



  1. I didn’t workout for a long time and I now want to start with TIU!
    Can you please give me an example week how to incorporate these workouts?
    For example:
    Sunday: Set the bar
    Monday: Total Body Tone Up
    Tuesday: Bikini Abs Workout
    Wednesday: Total Body Tone Up
    Thursday: Bikini Abs Workout
    Friday: Total Body Tone Up
    Saturday: Bikini Abs Workout
    Sunday: ??
    And should we also do the 5 Daily Moves?
    It would be so helpful!!

    1. Hey girl! I would try doing Set the Bar every other Sunday, as the recommend every two weeks. Check out the weekly schedule to see what workouts are planned for everyday! If you want to incorporate these routines, try switching them out with what’s on the daily workout. So if Monday was arms, you might try Bikini Arms and if Tuesday was total body, you might try Total Body Tone Up! Tone It Up has tons of awesome (free and premium) workouts that you should definitely check out! Hope this helps!

        1. The best thing about all of this (there are endless amazing things about this program) is that they do your workout schedule for you daily… as I say, ” they dummy it down for me”

  2. Oh! I love this!! So glad you posted this. I started printing a lot of stuff out from your website. I’m making a journal & fitness planner. So excited. :) I am seriously thinking about the membership to join. Gotta talk to the hubby $ lol :)

  3. Thank you so much for sharing the set the bar routine. I am a tu girl for fews years now and this video is really a must. I’m so happy that I’ll be able to share it with girl friend as a go to tool too for them. Love you K&K team!

  4. Hi ladies! I am so grateful for this post. Having fallen off the horse last fall (I know it’s embarrassing, but I have learned that the TIU community never hates, but shows love so I feel OK admitting it). I still incorporate walks with friends when I can, but I want to get back to really working it now. Since small lifestyle changes and the inspiration and guidance from K+K and the TIU community, I have lost 18 pounds since last March!!! I have also finally reached my goal of waking up early enough for an am booty call. My question is this: do I eat before or after breakfast, and if it’s before, how do I wait to start my work out? Xoxo

    1. I think their guidance is to eat something small before IF you’ll be working out for more than 30 minutes. I personally don’t usually eat before my morning workout, but have something with protein in it directly after. Just listen to your body and decide what works best for you :). I’d say if you have something small like a half a banana before your workout, you probably don’t need to wait very long to start working out. But I wouldn’t recommend having something heavy before hand.

  5. Don’t forget hitty bitty bikini!! That workout is BEASTLY! In a good way, haha. 😊

  6. Thanks so much for posting this! I filled out your survey recently and this was one of my chief concerns. It felt quite intimidating to get back into the work-outs after a hiatus so this is just the perfect way to ease into the TIU lifestyle again. Thank you, thank you! Very grateful for this. x

  7. I have been a member of the TIU family for awhile but have never stuck to a series :( THIS TIME is going to be different. I have a question I am hoping you all can help me with… they are advertising Beach Babe 5 and say that is the only video you need for the Bikini Series, but do you have to buy the video? Or are those workouts included for Free for being a member?

  8. Any tips on how to moderate these for someone who has exercised-induced asthma? I’m already talking to my doctor, so I’m not looking for medical help but would you say maybe cut the reps in half or do them slower?

    1. Hi Ashley! Take it slow, try lighter weights or fewer reps, and above all, listen to your body. Also talk to your doc about exercise to make sure you’re safe and healthy. xxo

  9. I wish I’d seen this when I first started trying to figure out where to start with TIU and definitely before the bikini series this year. I had been doing some of the daily toning moves here and there for a small time period (& while still trying to figure out how to navigate the TIU website etc) before the bikini series started, but before that I had gotten to a point where I hadn’t been able to work out AT ALL for essentially years due to medical reasons (when I had previously been very dedicated to exercise)…long story. It would’ve been great to know this was on here for me to do before the bikini series this year in order to know how to better track progress (which I did somehow actually complete despite my still very low energy level…you ladies are miracle workers 🙌🏼 and I’m so thankful for your program)! I hope I am able continue making progress with this community! ❤️

    1. Hi babe! We’re so happy you’re a part of this community and that you did the Bikini Series with us! We always want you to listen to your body and go at your own pace. You can always modify workouts and we’re here if you have questions! We know you’re going to continue making progress and rocking it 💕
