Ultimate Full Body Beach Circuit
Where’s a better place to work out than on the beach? With mother nature surrounding you, palm trees providing that necessary shade and the uneven sand giving your leg muscles that extra punch. Beach workouts are hands down my favourite and this Beach Full Body Circuit is one of my favourite circuits.
This beach full body circuit works the whole body, from your legs to your chest and has lots of cardio moves to get that heart rate pumping. This workout should take between 30-40 minutes. Are you ready?
Let’s start by warming up and getting the heart-rate going. Stand up straight with your legs together. Then take a big hop to your right then to the left, then right and continue. Keep your legs together as you do this. Repeat for 30 reps.
Begin in a standing position, facing forward with your chest up and your feet about shoulder-width apart. Then jump to the right while bending your right leg. At this point, for something a little more advanced, you can bring your left hand to touch your right foot. Then jump to the left and repeat. The exercise should feel like a fluid ice-skating movement. Repeat for 30 reps.
Another exercise to get the heart rate going. Get into a squat position then jump up into the air as high as you can. Come back down into a squat position. Repeat 20 times.
Push up with alternative arm and leg reach
Get into a high plank position. Bend your arms and lower yourself down to the floor when you can’t go any further push yourself back up. Immediately afterwards, with your core engaged, bring your right arm out in front of you and lift your left leg simultaneously. Hold for 2 seconds and bring back to plank position. Push up again this time, bringing out the left arm and right leg. This exercise is a great move that engages and works the entire body. Repeat for 7 reps on each side.

Sit down on the ground with your knees bent. Position your hands behind your torso shoulder-width apart. Straighten your arms, keeping a slight bend in your elbow to avoid joint injury. Then bend your elbows and bring your body down towards the ground. Engage your triceps and try not to use your feet to carry your weight. 15 reps total or even go for 20.
Lie down flat on your back with your elbows bent and your palms interlinked behind your head. Bring your shoulders up off of the ground. Slowly bring in your elbow and the opposite knee in together until they touch. So if you’re working your right elbow, bring in your left leg, so your left knee touches your right elbow. Straighten out and repeat for the other elbow and knee. Repeat for 30 reps.
Side plank with hip tap
Begin in a side plank position. Make sure your elbow, hips and heels are in line with each other. You can place your spare arm on your hips or in the air. Engage your core and pulse your hips upwards. Make sure it’s your abs doing the work and not your hips. Keep them engaged. Repeat for 10 reps each side.
REST and repeat for 3-4 sets.
So that’s another workout done and dusted. Well done!! Leave a comment below, I’d love to know what you thought.
