March kicked in, and it’s still kinda cold outside. I don’t mind the cold as long as I don’t have to live in it.This is why I keep daydreaming about when I stayed in Aruba last year. Thinking about how I was running on the beach like a Fit Girl beach babe :D. Of course not just for fun, I also worked my ass off with what I like to call a “workout beach style” . My dear friend and talented photographer Laura was there to capture my workout moves so we can share it with you Fit Girls and hopefully give you FITspiration if you end up on a sunny beach!
BUT FIRST, if you are planning a beach workout be wise about at what time of the day you are going to sweat your cute butt off. So if you decide to do your beach work-out in the middle of the day when it’s like a hundred degrees, wait a little while when it’s not so hot and also make sure you have an extra bottle of water and fresh fruits to keep your sugar level up and don’t get dehydrated! The conditions in which you are working out will influence your workout routine, so be aware of that.
Every work-out starts with a warming up, make sure you don’t completely wire yourself out with the warming up, but don’t just skip it. You need to prepare your body for the work-out and stretch your muscles to prevent injuries. Just because it’s warm doesn’t mean your muscles are.
You can do this by running the beach a few times or run up and down the stairs from the boulevard towards the beach. Or you could stay at one spot and warm up by running in place. Raising your knees above your hip one by one and stay in position is always guaranteed for a good warming up. Take 5 till 8 minutes for this routine by alternating running with jumping jacks or knee raises. Afterwards take the time to stretch your body. Take a sip of water and you are ready to rock your beach workout!
