Feel free, light and natural!
Before getting everything started, these workout clothes will make the perfect additions to your brisk cool ocean, blistering weather, sun-bleached sands, and blue-green salt waters.
To achieve a meticulous session, your sports bras should not be leaving discomfort and irritations on your body or anywhere. In particular, on a beach vacation, you definitely need a bra top that makes you feel free and light!
Take sloggi’s revolutionary ZERO Feel with you!
Not only it is perfectly seamless, but it also naturally moves with you due to dot bonding technology and super smooth, Japanese-designed 360° stretch fabric.
Despite the heat, the super soft, seamfree, and stretchable sloggi ZERO Feel absolutely provides the comfort and support that we need. Wearing it under the golden sun and sandy beach, its cotton-like natural feel certainly goes better with the whole workout.
High knees works your calves, quads, hamstrings, shins, and your abdominal muscles. Stand tall, hold hands out in front of you, and bring your knees up to meet them, alternating quickly like running in place but bringing your knees up.
This looks very simple yet challenging. Go into a squat position and jump up as high as you can. You can even imagine throwing a basketball. Land softly into a squat position again and repeat up to 20 reps.
It is said to be the mother of all abs exercise because it targets all areas of abdominals. Lying on the ground, imagine cycling and having your elbow reached to the opposite knee and keep cycling with the opposite elbow reached the opposite knee. Repeat as many times or for a start about 15 repetitions. Avoid pulling your head while holding it.
Having your body in a push-up position with a straight back. With your head looking up a little, bring one knee to your chest and then back to straight. Change to the opposite leg and repeat the same. Be careful not to slouch or bring your butt up too high. Try to do 10 repetitions with left and right leg movement as one rep.
With your elbows sideways as shown in the picture, balance yourself for as long as you can. Then, do the other side too. It may help to put your feet against a wall if you’re not comfortable.
