So you’ve busted your ass all spring, literally, to get the perfect bikini body, and now you’re tempted to lounge on the sand drinking margs and dreaming about those summer nights. But here’s the deal with bodies: they take upkeep. As soon as you start resting on your laurels, all that effort is lost and you have to go back to the start. Thankfully, there are workouts you can do while wearing your bikini to keep up that bikini bod. Work out queen Emma Rose spills on beach fitness: the best classes, snacks, and even how long to eat before you swim!
What’s the best work out to do beachside?
Beach yoga is AMAZING, so good for the soul and releases great endorphins. A HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout or a beach bootcamp are both great ways to burn some extra calories!
When you’re running on the beach, do you go sneakers or barefoot?
I’m a bit of a soak and running in bare feet can kill! I run on the hard sand in my runners.
Is there a way to get a good work out in the water?
SURE! Swimming is a great workout because it works every muscle, but you don’t feel the impact as with running. However, it is mainly upper body. Aqua aerobics is a ton of fun!
Is that thing about waiting an hour after you eat to swim true or a myth?
I don’t really know… Generally, I wait 30 minutes based on what my mum used to tell me when I was little. To avoid a stitch.
What are the best ways of bringing protein snacks to the beach?
Protein balls are great and easy to take anywhere. With protein shakes, remember to mix it up on the beach just before you want to drink it, don’t bring it pre-made. Bring along fresh water and the protein in a shaker, otherwise it’s nasty.
Other than protein shakes, what are some great on the go snacks to keep in your beach bag?
A piece of fruit is a must! Roasted nuts or anything that won’t go bad that needs a fridge. Fresh fruit is my fave, perfect for summer and beach weather!
When she’s not attending Kylie Jenner’s birthday party or doing deadlifts in the gym, she’s busy running a tight ship as the matriarch of her impossibly beautiful family (so still cardio, I guess, in a way). The Australian influencer and IG superstar (actually, f*ck that, she’s real-life superstar if we’ve ever met one) isn’t showing any
MedMen is, undoubtedly, one of the most recognizable names in the cannabis industry in 2018. The brand officially has 18 locations, including a newly opened Abbott Kinney location. This is particularly amazing, due to the fact that Abbot Kinney has long since been a famous shopping district for LA’s finest. MedMen doesn’t just carry all
El Capitan Canyon, located 20 miles north of Santa Barbara, is the glamping retreat you will want to take this summer. A nature resort nestled on the seaside and surrounded by 300 acres of land, it’s the obvious choice for anyone who is dying to unplug, or reconnect with fabulous Mother Earth. The resort describes
As someone who’s never been an avid workout-class attendee, the outfit anxiety is real. Somehow, whenever I decide to try a new class, I always end up being the only person in shorts. Every other attendee is in LuLuLemon leggings at minimum (but likely some trendier, more under-the-radar option), a cute and ridiculously strappy sports
