6 moves for a beach bod


 
Sara Haley, master trainer and creative consultant for Reebok, developed a fun plan just for GL. Repeat the entire series two to six times. Check out her website for even more tips.

1. Beach bunny hops with arm circles
“Hop from one foot to the other, as if you were on the beach, standing in sand that’s too hot,” Sara says. As you’re  hopping, make giant circles with your arms to warm up your body. Repeat 10 to 15 times.

2. Watermelon press
Hold a 5- to 10-pound weight between your hands, with your feet shoulder-distance apart. Squat down then stand up, extending your arms and lifting your weight to the ceiling. Repeat 12 times.

3. Short shorts side splits
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart with your right leg slightly in front of the left. Lunge down by bending both knees (be sure not to let your knee go past your toes). Return to start and repeat 16 times.

4. Tank top tricep pulses
Start with your feet shoulder-width apart while holding a 5- to 10-pound weight behind your back with both hands. “Hinge over from the hips, working to maintain a flat back by squeezing your shoulder blades together,” she tells us. Slowly pulse the weight up and down 20 times.

5. Bikini abs
Start on your back with your legs up in the air and your knees bent. Cradle your hands behind your head. Lift your shoulders up and pull your knees into your chest. Lower your upper body and straighten your legs on an angle. “Try your best to keep your feet together,” Sara reminds us. Repeat 16 times.

6. So-fly flutter kicks
Lie down on your stomach with your arms in front of you and your legs straight. Tighten your core. Lift your arms and legs off the floor. Pump your arms and flutter your legs simultaneously (when your left leg is up, your right arm should be up). Repeat 10 times.
