Beach Workout

Fashion Inspiration for a Beach Workout

Tons of new and remarkable beach workout fashionable pieces are popping up everywhere!  And by bringing the gym to the beach with oceanic blues, palm prints, and a dash of tropical flowers, you will feel more positive and motivated, and your body will thank you for it. Hayati’s Tooba Baig shares a few beach workouts to get you going. 

There are some really great workouts for you that can be done while you take in the sand, sun and beauty around. You don’t need weights and heavy equipment because these exercises are mainly based on body weight and are fun to do. There are variety of things you can do at a beach as exercise.

Swim it off. Swimming is a unique and effective alternative to other types of cardio workouts like running or biking. The point is water offers heavy resistance, which makes it equal to cardio workouts. That means your moves engage more muscle fibres and burn more calories in a shorter amount of time. It works all the major muscle groups so targets every area of your body.

Walking is always good for you; walk whenever and wherever it is possible. Rather than lying on the beach all day, take a walk along the shoreline. It contributes to overall fat burning effect. It helps in burning calories and puts a little stress on your body. You can also try running along the coast for a cardio workout.

Yoga is the fantastic way to maintain the body weight you want. All you need is a yoga mat or a beach towel and you are good to go. Yoga is great for calming the mind and it helps tone your butt, thighs, abs, and upper body.

With access to water, kayaking is an expanding sport that is capturing the imagination of Dubai’s fun-seekers. It is a fun way to maintain the body that you have achieved through hard work. Placing the paddle in the water and executing a good stroke is going to incorporate every muscle in the upper body and some lower body muscles as well.  This means that in one hour at 3 mph you are going to do about 1500 repetitions of low impact upper body movements, which no matter what your fitness goals are, you are going to tone up almost every muscle in your body.

Volleyball burns calories effectively. It uses every part of your body. You get to use your arms, shoulders and chest to bump, spike and serve the ball; you use your legs to run through that sand and squat down to reach the volleyball; and your core to stay balanced while at it.

These fun activities are excellent to try out on the beach even when you don’t feel like working out. All you have to remember is to keep yourself hydrated, lather up on a wide spectrum sunscreen to avoid any skin damage, and wear a hat or a cap for sun protection.
