Bodyweight-Based Beach Workout

Hi Fitness Enthusiasts,

How is the week going so far? I hope you are all kicking butt with your health and fitness goals and achieving those things that matter most in your life.

Today we have another Bodyweight Based training video for you with one additional tool besides your bodyweight, bands. Bands are such an effective and travel savvy tool to supplement all of your workouts. You can buy bands in all sorts of locations but some tend to be made of poor quality material. The bands that we are using in the video are from our friends at Perform Better! They provide nothing but quality fitness equipment. If you are interested in buying yourself a great tool to include in your training then bands are a great addition. Click on the following link to get yourself some great bands, mini and super bands, from Perform Better's affiliate in the UK, BANDS GALORE, and here is the link for their offices in the U.S., I LOVE BANDS!

On to the video!

Like with our last Bodyweight Based video be sure to get a good warm up using a jump rope, jumping jacks, high knees, bum kickers, side shuffles and some press ups.

Stick to the same format in terms of the interval training, 50 seconds of work with 10 seconds of rest and change exercises. Aim for the 4-5 rounds and no rest between the supersets but if you are just starting out limit your number of rounds and rest 1-2 minutes between each round.

Remember the other option is to perform each exercise for 3 sets of 12 repetitions in a superset format, i.e. complete prescribed repetitions for exercise one and immediately continue to next exercise until all the exercises in superset have been completed, then rest for 60-90 seconds before starting on the next set.

Here is the next in the series of bodyweight based workouts to get you blasting fat and packing on lean muscle. Alternate this workout with Workout A that I posted a couple of weeks ago with a rest day in between the workout or you can use the Cardio Core session as a metabolic booster in between Workouts A and B!

For example, Wk1 Monday-(Workout A), Tuesday - (Cardio Core), Wednesday - (Workout B), Thursday- Rest, Friday - (Workout A), Saturday - (Cardio/Core), Sunday-Rest

On the following week start Monday with Workout B and continue in the same format as above for three weeks.

Enjoy and let us know in the comment section what you think of the workout, preferably after the soreness disappears:)

Achieve It,

  1. Excellent topics. I really like this. After long searching I found this online that, Fitness Concepts Personal Training GUARANTEE you'll reach your fitness and weight loss goals with their program or they will give you ALL your money back… cuz' if you don't reach your goals with them they don't want your money.
