Vacation Workout tips
Cardio – 5-minute warm up
Before you start your workout, it’s important that you warm up. That literally means warming up your muscles for the real work. For example, 5 minutes’ running, cycling or swimming. Tip: perform the exercises at a low tempo – after all, it is a warm-up!
The push-up is an exercise that works your chest muscles and arms. Place your hands on the ground and make sure your shoulders are directly above them. Let your shoulders sink down until they are slightly above the ground, with your face forwards and your back straight, and then push your body back up. Tip: if this is too hard for you, place your knees on the ground and do the push-ups from this position.
Time to train your buttocks! The lunge is the way of working your legs and buttocks. How? Stand up straight and take a large step forwards with one leg. Lower your body, so to speak. Then return your body to position 1 and change legs. Note: always place your heel on the ground first and never let your knee extend beyond your toes.
Along with lunges, squats are good exercises for tight legs and buttocks. Stand with your legs parallel, shoulders-width apart. Push your pelvis backwards and your chest forwards. From this position, bend your knees so that your buttocks move towards the floor. Tip: keep a hollow back and push those buttocks as far back as possible girls, this helps to prevent injuries!
- Drink plenty of water so you have enough strength for the exercises. Water also gives you a feeling of being sated, meaning you’ll have less of an urge to snack.
