so we all know hitting the pool is a great way to get toned without
breaking a sweat. But, uh, we know everyone doesn’t have an all-access
pass to a pool (we don’t!). Here are a couple other ways to tone up,
without sweating buckets.
Get awesome abs in the AC
Sure it might be a million degrees outside, but you’re about to put down
some roots in your living room. Doing a yoga or Pilates DVD in the AC
(or with a few fans set up around you) is an awesome way to get yoru bod
moving and stay chill. We’re currently digging Exhale: Core Fusion
Cardio Pure Intensity
The workouts are broken into chunks, so you can take water breaks or wipe your brow in between 10-minute sessions.
Hold a nighttime captain’s practice
Scour your town to find a soccer or softball field that’s lit up at
night (make sure it’s in a safe neighborhood!). Then, get a bunch of
your teammates together to work on your skills. Or, vow to become champs
at something totally new to you, like Ultimate Frisbee or rugby.
Get your run on in the a.m.
Don’t groan! Sure, it can be a challenge to roll outta bed early, but
then you’ll have your sweat sesh outta the way before the sun is
blazing. Take new routes, join a running club or set up a schedule with a
bud to ensure you two hit the road (or trails!) on a regular basis. Why
not sign up for a July 4th 5K today? Get training, girl!
