It's beach season. Enjoy it.
And utilize it.
A routine activity can become a brand new experience when you change your location. It can be refreshing. It can kickstart a rebirth of sorts through achieving a new perspective. It can be damn fun, even if you are doing a grueling workout.
A change of environment introduces unique challenges, too. Many of the elements found in beach training can combine to give you an incredible workout you can't get anywhere else. Sand and water combine to work you in ways you aren't experiencing in your local park or regular gym.
So, let's combine a change of location with the ultimate beach workout.
There are many benefits of working out on the sand. These include:
- Burning more calories
- Building stabilizing muscles
- Decreasing impact on your joints
We've put together a workout that will maximize your time on the beach this summer.
