Beachin’ Band Workout

image

You would rather just workout at home, you want to be outside, or maybe you are sick of the stalker at the gym who always wants to spot you and needs to cut a wider neck on his shirt just to make room for his chest hair. Whatever the reason, here’s a fun yet challenging 36-40 minute total body workout (mainly using resistance bands) you can do at home, on the beach, in a park, or even the gym. Just name the place and bring a band.

Tools: A Resistance band, a pole, palm tree, or post to wrap it around, a stopwatch and some energy.

I did this one afternoon on the beach in a bikini, got some weird looks from a fisherman, and was ecstatic to jump in the ocean when I was done.

Enjoy.
