Sculpt Your Summer Body: A Refreshing Summer Workout Routine

Posted by We Sell Mats on

With the sun shining bright and the days growing longer, summer provides the perfect backdrop for getting outdoors and breaking a sweat. Whether you're aiming to tone up, boost your endurance, or simply stay active, a well-rounded summer workout routine can help you achieve your fitness goals with a little help from We Sell Mats. Here's a refreshing workout plan designed to keep you moving, motivated, and feeling your best all summer long.

Warm-Up (5-10 minutes)

Before diving into your workout, it's essential to prepare your body with a dynamic warm-up. Start with a brisk walk or light jog to get your heart rate up and increase blood flow to your muscles. Then, incorporate dynamic stretches like arm circles, leg swings, and torso twists to loosen up your joints and improve flexibility. Perform these stretches on a comfortable surface, like the Folding Exercise Mat from We Sell Mats. 

Cardio Blast (20-30 minutes)

Embrace the summer vibes with a heart-pumping cardio session that gets your blood pumping and your endorphins flowing. Choose activities that you enjoy and that can be done outdoors, such as running, cycling, swimming, or jumping rope. Alternate between high-intensity intervals and moderate-paced segments to challenge your cardiovascular system and burn calories effectively.

Strength Training Circuit (20-30 minutes)

Next, focus on building strength and sculpting lean muscle with a full-body strength training circuit. You can perform this circuit using bodyweight exercises or incorporate resistance bands, dumbbells, or kettlebells for an added challenge. Include exercises targeting major muscle groups such as squats, lunges, push-ups, rows, planks, and overhead presses to ensure a well-rounded workout. When completing the circuit in your home gym, consider the Multipurpose Foam Mats from We Sell Mats. Available in ⅜” thick, ½” thick, ¾” thick or 1” thick and a variety of colors, these mats provide the perfect base for your home gym area.

Core Conditioning (10-15 minutes)

A strong core is essential for stability, balance, and functional movement, so dedicate some time to strengthening your abdominal and back muscles. Incorporate a variety of core exercises such as crunches, bicycles, Russian twists, leg raises, and plank variations into your routine. Get the right amount of support for your core training with the Folding Exercise Mats from We Sell Mats. They are easy to fold up and store when you’re done!

Cool Down and Stretch (5-10 minutes)

After completing your workout, take time to cool down and stretch your muscles to promote recovery and flexibility. Focus on areas that feel tight or tense, paying special attention to your legs, hips, chest, shoulders, and back. Incorporating yoga poses or foam rolling can also help release tension and improve mobility.

With this refreshing summer workout routine, you can stay active, energized, and motivated to reach your fitness goals throughout the sunny season. Remember to listen to your body, stay hydrated, and adjust the intensity of your workouts as needed to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
