May 19, 2015

As summer approaches, you might find yourself looking to switch up your workout routine. Maybe you want to move your workouts outside, have new fitness goals, or you need to trim a bit more winter fat than you thought. Whatever your reason you have plenty of options. Here are five of the most effective summer workout routines.

Take a Swim
Swimming is a favorite summer workout for many reasons. You can do it outside, and it is a full body workout. In addition to burning a lot of calories, you’ll be able to cool down in the water.

Go for a Ride
If you are looking for a great leg workout, try to include cycling in your summer workout routine. It's great for cardio, legs, and your lower belly. If you can, ride your bike everywhere possible.

Along with a great physical workout, yoga is an excellent way to improve the balance between your mind and your body. It can also help relax your mind and stretch your muscles. In the summer, it’s even more relaxing when you find a beautiful, peaceful spot outdoors.

Running is one of the most common summer workouts. It is cheap, and you can do it almost anywhere. Whether you are sprinting, walking or on a good jog, it is an incredible cardio workout that gets your heart rate up and your blood pumping. Which all works together to increase metabolism and burn that winter fat.

High-Intensity Cardio
If you want to ramp your summer workout, try some high-intensity cardio training. Whether you do it by yourself or seek expert help from a personal trainer, high-intensity training will get your heart rate pumping, and you’ll be burning calories faster.
