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?

Is there a way to get a good work out in the water?

Is that thing about waiting an hour after you eat to swim true or a myth?

What are the best ways of bringing protein snacks to the beach?

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!
The only thing better than chugging beer and getting turnt on St. Patrick’s Day? Chugging beer guilt-free. Guinness, one of the most famous Irish beers, used to put the slogan “Guinness is good for you” on its ads, and it turns out they’re actually kind of right. You know how people claim that pure dark
Working out has its perks, there’s no doubt about it. But I don’t need to talk about the benefits of getting your fitness on, because every damn corner of the internet is bursting with people talking about how working out has changed their life, how it’ll help you find a boyfriend, or even worse — how it’ll
McDonald’s has been making a lot of technologically advanced changes lately, and we’re so here for it. After all, nothing’s worse than thinking you’re just going to roll through the drive-thru for a quick McGriddle before work and then facing a huge-ass line that’s going to make you late. Well, no more long lines —
Some people do it for the ‘gram, and others eat it for the ‘gram. Or, they don’t actually eat it, they take a picture of it and then give it to their friend because they’re on a crazy diet. Just like ridiculous street style and over-the-top highlighter, certain things look better on Instagram than they
