6 Moves to Get You Beach Bod Ready
06 March 2017
It's March which means Spring Break is upon us and days spent at the beach and pool are coming soon. We enlisted the help of Kellie from The Classy Artist to walk us through her go-to fitness routine to get in beach body shape for the spring and summer months.
Hey beauties! My name is Kellie and today I'm sharing my all-time favorite workout routine with you to get you "beach body" ready!
Kellie's Daily Workout
Feel free to switch out moves as needed. This doesn't get every muscle group so you'll want to add in your own moves as well.
Sit with your legs out in front of you, tighten your abs, reach your arms out like wings, then keep one hand in place as you bring the other to it. Make sure that after each "clap" you put both arms out like wings again. Repeat rep 10-12 times for each side.
Be the Board
Think your basic plank. Then, move a leg up and outward, away from your center, bring the leg back to the middle and start again. The key to this move is speed and muscle control. Repeat 10-12 times per leg, while holding a continuous plank.
Lay on your back with your arms and legs in the air. Move legs and arms outward simultaneously, then bring together. Rapidly repeat 10-12 times.
Start in a side plank position. With muscles tightened, move hips up and down from the ground 10-12 times. Repeat set 5 times.
These are regular lunges, but you're going to do 40 of them quickly.
Jumps for the Lumps
This move is literally just you jumping like a kid. Try to switch it up sometimes too. Maybe some days you try to get your feet high, the next you see how high you can get your knees, and the next you stoop way low after landing and jump again. See which is harder and work on that. Do 10-12 jumps really fast without stopping.
You know the routine. As fast as you can you will lurch down toward the ground, plant your hands, jump your legs back so you're in a plank, bring your knees back in toward your chest, squat, and then jump in the air as hard and high as you can. This is where the real magic is. Once you do 10-15 of these, you should have no energy left. That's how you know you're done!
I hope this inspires your daily workouts! Join me next Motivation Monday for more inspo!
