When the sun is shining and the weather is sweet, take your next workout session into the sand and feel the intense burn (not of the sun though – make sure you wear sunscreen!)
Here’s a question for you: What’s the quickest way to ramp up the intensity of a workout? Add some instability! If you’ve ever tried doing anything on a yoga or Bosu ball, you’ll know that the minute things are a little unstable, your muscles need to work much harder. Well, folks, sand is the perfect unstable foundation for a killer session. Your ordinary, everyday moves will be harder, your heart rate will spike sooner and your muscles will have to overcompensate (think gains in the long run). Gosh, who needs weights and a treadmill?
