Living on an island is great; we have fun, sun, rum, and parties- not to mention the beach, who would want to be anywhere else?
7 body weight exercises to look beach ready at all times
No gym required
The squat is one of the best exercises we can do; it essentially works your whole body. But what I’m predominantly concerned with is getting a great pair legs and a fabulous glutes. The squat helps to build, lift, tone and tighten, and lets face it, when trying to look sexy in our two piece having sexy legs and a toned rear end is all we need. So make sure you are having squats for breakfast, lunch and dinner, to get the sexy toned legs and ample bottom you desire.
You don’t want the only 6 pack you are carrying around next summer to be the beers you picked up from the gas station. If you want to get those washboard abs (which you do), the only way to realistically achieve this is of course is by training your core. Sit-ups will help strengthen, tone and define your stomach, which will of course have all of the girls’ heads turning when you are posing at the beach. Who has ever said no to a guy with a flat sexy well defined, toned set of abs and a nice smile?
When you say A you have to say B, some ladies love a nice toned flat stomach, but if you’re anything like me, a set of strong, keep me safe hold me tight arms is all I need. And working your triceps is definitely the way to go, adding some triceps dips into the mix will definitely have you looking like beach body perfection. You can’t have a sexy chest, flat stomach and then stick arms to go with it. So start dipping men!
Most men are notorious for skipping leg day, and the smallest muscle on your legs is unquestionably the one that suffers the most. Make sure you work your calves whenever you get the chance!
Cardio, cardio, cardio, I know a lot of us hate it, but it is an important component of fitness. It doesn’t only keep your heart and lungs functioning properly, it also helps keep the fat off. So if you do want to show off that six pack- cardio, if you want to look toned, lean and ripped- cardio. Basically the less body fat you have the more your muscles will be able to show themselves off. So sorry my friend, but cardio is very important.
The Push-up does wonders for upper body conditioning, the primary muscles involved are your chest and triceps, so for a killer set of arms and a sexy looking chest, this is the exercise for you. It can be done anywhere, anytime, with no equipment needed, and you can increase intensity by adding many different variations; incline, decline, diamond. So when it comes to having a nice set of pecs and toned, firm arms the push up is the best way to go.
The burpee is the most hated of all the exercises, but it is an amazing tool to have in your arsenal, you can do them anywhere, with not much space required, and you are sure to get a good sweat on once you start. It’s a great cardio and full body strength exercise, working your arms, chest, quads, glutes, hamstrings, and abs. So if you are really thinking about conditioning your body, losing some weight and increasing your strength for the beach, the bupree is the exercise for you.
Combine all of the above to get a great full body work out and have yourself looking primed for the beach at all times, fitness isn’t just for summer, its for life.
