Are you ready for a heart pumping 20 minute full body workout? Let’s get to it! Trust me, after just twenty minutes you’ll be ready to jump right into the ocean to cool off!
1. WARMUP WITH 5 MINUTE EASY JOG.
When you are all setup and ready to start your workout you’ll want to warm your body up. I like to start with an easy five minute jog on the sand.
Running on the soft sand is a lot harder than running on the paved road or sidewalk, so go even slower than your normal slow pace. The point of this part of the workout isn’t to get your heart pumping super fast, it’s just to prime your body for the rest of the workout!
I know five minutes doesn’t sound long but trust me, when you’re running on the soft sand five minutes will feel like a lifetime!
2. PLANK FOR5 MINUTES
Now it’s time to work on your core with a five minute plank! If you can’t hold a plank for that long you can modify this portion of the workout by doing 5 x 50 second planks or even 10 x 20 second planks (giving yourself a 10 second break in between each rep).
3. FORWARD LUNGES – 3 X 10 (OR FIVE MINUTES)
Once you’re properly warmed up move right into forward lunges and do these for about five minutes. You should be able to get in 3 sets with 10 reps or five sets with 10 reps depending on your current fitness level.
4. BURPEE TIME! (THREE MINUTES)
Grab your phone, set the timer and get ready for the three hardest minutes of your life because we’re doing burpees in the sand! Depending on your fitness level you may do 50 seconds of burpees, take a 10 second breather and then repeat two more times until you reach three minutes.
Yes, burpees are hard and they kind of suck to do, but this workout is only 20 minutes and they will make a real impact on your whole body!
5. CRUNCHES(TWO MINUTES)
To wrap up this quick, heart-pumping workout let’s do two minutes of continuous crunches to get those abs poking out and strengthen the core! If you need to you can modify this portion of the workout and do 2 x 50 seconds with 10 seconds of rest in between sets.
DON’T FORGET TO WEAR YOUR V-BELT!
Whether you’re working out at home, at the gym or on the beach be sure to wear your V-Belt to achieve the best results! Don’t worry, getting a little bit of sand on your V-Belt won’t hurt it – just throw it in the washing machine and allow it to air dry once you get home.
