It’s summertime and the beach is calling so most people don’t want to stay in the gym all day. That’s why I came up with a lift of popular activities that you can do with your friends or on your own:
Of course! It’s hot out so why not go for a swim? Swimming is low impact activity that you can do at the beach or at your pool. You are required to use your full range of motion, so it will help increase your flexibility and ease pain within your joints.
Head down to your local aquatic center and learn how to surf. Surfing is a great way to increase your overall body strength. Your upper back and shoulders will be worked through paddling. Your legs and core will take a beating from standing up and staying up. Not only is it challenging at first, but its also fun.
3. Stand up paddle board
If you thing this is way too easy, think again. Similar to surfing stand up paddle board is a fun and great way to get out in the middle of the ocean and get a great workout. Your core will be screaming after your first session.
4. Bike riding
It’s nice to actually get out and use a real bike, instead of that stationary one in the gym. You get to feel the wind in your hair and the nice summer sun. Be sure to wear sunblock if you burn easily. If you don’t have a bike, there are plenty of shops that would be happy to rent you one for the day.
5. Beach Volleyball
Want something more competitive? Try beach volleyball. Get some friends to go out and have a beach day and have a little competition. If you don’t have friends, challenge some of the people already playing.
There you have it! Five activities that you can do this summer!
