Get a Better Workout on the Beach

The Sand Between Your Toes 1 of 8

Do you love to work out, but you're looking for a new challenge? Are you trying to get past a plateau so you can finally drop those last few pounds? Have you been lazy for a while and are trying to get back in shape? Just find a reason why you should move your exercise routine to the beach. You'll get a better workout than ever before!

First and foremost, sand will become your best friend and your worst enemy. This soft substance that makes up the beach will make your routine much more intense, especially if you do some running or walking. Running on the sand burns more calories than other surfaces and heavily uses all these different muscles:

  • Quadriceps
  • Hamstrings
  • Calves
  • Glutes

In addition to getting a more intense workout, sand also great reduces the impact of running and jumping on your feet. Your bones and joints will thank you later for switching!
