Not up for a jog in the heat and humidity? We don’t blame ya. There’s an easier way to stay slim in the summer. Below, we rounded up fun ways to sneak in a workout without feeling like it’s work.
The saying “shopping is my cardio” is so true. Zipping from
store to store while lugging around heavy bags gives you a mini workout. Skip
the escalator and take the stairs. You’ll burn more cals that way.
Walk the Dog
Next time Mom tells you to taken Roscoe for a walk, don’t
pass the chore off to your li’l bro. Walking your dog can get in some serious
cardio. Take your pooch to a nearby park or even take him on a run to change it
up. It’s a treat you’ll both heart.
Your bare backyard is the perf place for a low-key workout. Planting flowers and lifting mulch will def tone your arms. Bonus: It’s outdoors in the fresh air. Sure beats being cooped up in the sweaty gym.
Take a Walk on the Beach
Even on your beach vacay you can get trim while having fun. Stroll
along the breaking waves to find cool seashells or watch the sunset. The sand
gives more resistance than other surfaces, so you’ll tone your calves while getting
a tan at the same time.
Sure, the pool is a fab place to cool off and splash around.
But it’s also a great place to sneak a workout in. No, we’re not saying pull a
Michael Phelps and master the backstroke. Take it easy and start a game of
Marco Polo with friends. Burning cals and having fun? Done and done!
