Bodyweight workout for the beach - No equipment needed | Xcore Nutrition

Vacation season is here and I bet all you think about is lying on the sand, sunbathing for hours, going for a swim from time to time — in short, enjoying your well-deserved rest. And you should rest, of course, but being on vacation must not be an excuse to completely give up your physical activities, and believe me, the context can be pretty useful to boost the effects of your regular workouts, let’s say, a bodyweight workout.

Summer invites to outdoor activities and exercising should be no exception. So to help you achieve a toned and sculpted body without leaving the beach, here is my suggestion for an effective body weight routine — and the perfect workout to do when following my 12 weight loss tips.

Beach bodyweight workout

This full body weight routine follows a superset format for the first 5 exercise combinations, where you perform a set of the first exercise, then go right into a set of the second exercise, then rest; then you repeat this sequence until you complete the prescribed sets. Supersets are one of the best methods to increase intensity when you’re doing body weight exercises.

To finish up this bodyweight workout, you have to do two more exercises for the abs, and you’re done. A simple, but not an easy routine for your vacation days at the beach.

Let’s do this!
