Many people associate the beach exclusively with recreation, ice cocktails and tanned athletes. Meanwhile, it is also an ideal place for training: a functional exercise here will help to work out the muscles better (since you will most likely have to do the exercises on an unstable surface - sand, pebbles, etc.) and more effectively break down fat cells (due to good oxygen supply). in this process).
Such training allows you to vary the load. “Add exercises with weights to the lesson: on the beach they can become bottles of water if you are a neophyte, or with sand if you train for about a month or two,” advises Pavel Fedorov, personal trainer, instructor of group programs at Fitlab. Doing fitness for more than three months? Take a bottle of 2 liters versus a liter for beginners.
Exercising on the beach is also good because in this case you have the opportunity to complete your swimming lesson. This will help relieve tension in the muscles, make the skin more elastic and resilient, and can also be an excellent cardiovascular option.
