Summertime means many things to many people but to us women, we work hard most of the Winter months to get bikini ready. Seeing as though strong is the new sexy or as Nike Master Trainer Eva Redpath would say, “Fit is It!”, we recently hooked up to go through the “Beach Ready” workout from Nike’s NTC+app – and trust me, it’s a lot tougher than it sounds! Unlike most of exercises you will find in the app, which are usually done alone, this specific workout was designed for you to team up with a training partner to help motivate while you strengthen and tone both your core and legs. This quick and dirty workout is only 15 minutes…you can combine it with 30 minutes of cardio to maximize your workout!
The “Beach Ready” workout and behind-the-scenes video below features Brazilian Beach Volleyball players (and sisters) Maria Clara and Carolina Salgado and has 5 drills including overhead tricep extensions, russian twist ball tosses, single leg deadlifts…and of course, Eva threw in some bonus exercises at the end!
