Workouts To Take To The Beach
When the sunny days with warmer temperatures has arrived, that is the perfect time to leave your workout room and take the things outdoor. Accept the challenge and go straight to the shore to work on your beach body. Your muscles will have an additional challenge which is to stabilize your body in the sand, despite this the beautiful views and mood boost from spending time in the sun are priceless.
Outdoor workouts are excellent because you don’t need any special equipment to workout and you can do exercises for the whole body. With exercises on the sand, you can improve cardiovascular endurance and build strength at the same time. On a top of all this, your muscles will work overtime which will burn more calories than they will burn with just steady state cardio alone (known as afterburn effect).
Now go to the beach and Tone Up your body.

Repeat on the opposite side. Try to get higher as possible.
