From the same starting position as the tricep dip exercise, I immediately go into leg raises, which target my lower abdominals. Balancing on the metal bars with my arm muscles holding me up, and my shoulders back and down, I keep myself in that hoisted position. From there, I tighten my abs, put my feet together and raise my legs to 90 degrees. My legs are parallel with the sand. I like to vary the exercise by alternating sets where my legs are straight out and sets where my legs are bent as you can see in the photo. I do 3 to 4 sets of 10 to 12 repetitions.

BOOKMARK:

Things You’ll Need

1. A lovely beach

2. Sunscreen

3. A towel (maybe one small for exercising and one large for after workout swim)

4. Water (you’ve got to stay hydrated)

5. Workout gloves (the metal might be hot and the gloves can serve as a barrier as well as padded comfort)

And remember, like all Get Me Body posts, these workout routines are suggested exercises that have worked for me. I am not a trainer or a physician, so please consult either of those two professionals before attempting to do any vigorous workout regiment, especially if you are new to exercising. Stay active and stay inspired.
