3 stellar workouts to put on your must-try list


Tired of the endless array of crunches and bicep curls? Ditch the usual sweat sesh! We’re digging these alternative options that give your bod a major workout while being a total blast—yes, really. Use these to mix up your routine every once in a while, but be careful. They just might become your new go-tos!

 

Rock wall climbing

Even though your legs propel ya up the wall, that doesn’t mean your arms aren’t getting a workout, too. You’ll feel this one all over—in your biceps and shoulders, your thighs and calves, your bum and transverse abdominals. Grab a bud who can help belay (or race ya to the top), pop on a helmet and harness and get to it, girl.

 

Paddle boarding

If you have a warm-weather, water-bound vacation coming up this year—or are lucky enough to live in a location that gives ya water sport options—paddle boarding is our latest obsession. You plus a surfboard and a paddle equals an afternoon of cruising around rivers, creeks and lakes, taking in the sights and scoring a seriously toned body. As little ripples head your way, the paddle board will act more like a balance board, forcing you to use all your muscles to stay afloat.

 

CrossFit (for kids)

CrossFit has gotten a lot of flak over the years because the program can push people too fast and hard. But we’re digging the kids program at crossfitkids.com. Each day, the site posts a new workout for all sorts of different levels, from varsity to preteen to preschool. The workout includes a 5 minutes warm up followed by 10 to 20 minutes of AMRAP (as many reps as possible) exercises and then a cool down. The great thing about this subset of CrossFit is that it doesn’t include any weights, so you won’t be stressing your body. Yesss!
