Beach Workout!

0 88

One of the most beautiful places to relax is on the beach, on a hot sunny day! The sound of the waves crashing against the rocks, the smell of sea salt in the air and the warmth of the sun heated sand on the soles of your feet are all very calming. OK, enough of that nonsense, the point is that the beach can be a great place to workout if the gym isn’t your kind of place!

Most beaches have masses of space therefore you can exercise in complete peace and quiet, without worrying if there are people watching you or getting in the way. There is something about the beach which makes it a nice environment to be in, which will certainly enhance your mood towards exercise if you find it hard to get motivated! You can also get a sun tan whilst training, what could be better? So whether you don’t like gyms, or you are going away on holiday this summer here is a ‘beach workout’ guide for you to stay in shape!

Beach Workout Circuit –

Perform each of the following exercises for 60 seconds flat out, getting as many full repetitions as possible done in that time! Take 30 seconds rest between exercises. Complete 3 circuits of these exercises! These circuits can be performed 3 times a week if it is going to be your main point of exercise.

Wide stance press ups

Bench dips (on a rock, bench etc)


Explosive squats

Lying hyperextensions

Close stance press ups

These exercises are not just thrown together for the sake of it; instead they have been chosen to help target different areas of the body. By following this exercise plan you will be giving your core a great workout and you will also be burning a lot of calories, keeping your heart rate elevated. This workout only takes 27 minutes, yet it is extremely intense. Therefore it is ideal for the summer, perhaps whilst you are on holiday and you just need to stimulate your muscles and keep the body levels down.

I was always the small kid since I can remember and it was always the same when I started football when I was just 8 years old. This didnt change until I was 16, where for all of my sporting life until that point I hadn't had the luxury of being strong on the field or powerful. I remember I always wanted to have a '6 pack' so I would do around 2,000 sit ups a night (no that is not a typo) but apart from being seriously fit I didn't get many gains in the form of aesthetics. So in the summer of 2006 when I was 16 I bought a 50kg weight set from Argos where I trained my heart out in my bedroom 3 times a week completing a full body circuit and yes, I did grow! As soon I lifted my first weight my arms always seemed to grow well and my chest didn't and that is the same today! Then at the start of 2007 I was fortunate enough to meet for the first time I guy some of you may of heard of, Kris Gethin. It is by no coincidence we share the same sir name, he is my bigger cousin (older as well :)). Kris took me under his wing, gave me a training programme and a diet and said follow this, so I did. Kris probably got 10-20 emails a DAY asking questions because I wanted to learn and wanted to know everything right away! Over the years since then Kris always guided me and put me in touch with Neil Hill who I am blessed enough to call a very close friend today. Neil now guides me with my nutrition and training and that basically explains my background to date. In the last year I have also written masses of articles for various companies and magazines in the industry and I am also the editor in chief of my own magazine which came out January of 2011, Elite Physique Magazine! My future aspirations as an athlete is to achieve a very aesthetic 'beach body', my ideal would be a mini version of Arnie, that classic shape is unbeatable in my opinion. As an individual I strive to always better myself and my knowledge and to help others who are starting out like I was 5 years ago! Above all else, it is an absolutely huge honour to be the online editor of MonsterSupplements.com!
