The 5 Moves You NEED For Summer

The beach isn't just for lounging, sipping a beer, and keeping track of when it's time to roll over and re-apply. It's also the perfect setting for your next workout. The soft, dry sand helps sculpt summer muscles quicker by adding instability and resistance. That means, more muscles are engaged (including your abs) to keep your body balanced on the constantly shifting surface. So, if your idea of a vacation workout involves walking from your towel to the shoreline, you’re missing the opportunity to sneak in a quick and effective routine.
Fitness expert Neghar Fonooni developed this vacation-approved plan that brings together the five best moves to try next time you're at the beach. That nap in the sun can wait.
