HIIT WORKOUTS YOU COULD DO AT THE BEACH!
This September, there are a lot of public holidays lined up and that calls for a vacation! If you are heading to the beach with your family or friends, here are some HIIT workouts that you could do at the beach! Do 20 seconds of each with 10 second breaks in between, for 8 rounds. And no, yoga isn’t the only workout you can get while you’re basking in the sun, sand and sea!
Start on the ground in a low plank position with your hands under your shoulders and your belly touching the sand. Push up from the ground and jump into a squatting position with the right leg in front of the left, as if you’re balancing on a surf board. Don’t forget to squeeze your glutes and engage the core! Return to the starting position and repeat with your left leg in front of the right for the surf stance.
Start with a plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Take two steps to the right while maintaining a plank, and perform a push-up. Repeat the process by moving back to the left. Perform another push-up and repeat.
With the right leg in front of the left, get into a lunge position so your knees are both at 90-degree angles. Use your core and quads to jump straight up, switching your legs in mid-air. Land with your left leg forward, then repeat.
Twisting mountain climbers
In a plank position, bring one knee to the opposite elbow. Quickly switch legs and twist the opposite knee to opposite elbow. Try to have your knee touch your elbow for every rep.
