Beach Body Workouts Summer 2015

Shaping up Your Summer Beach Body

Are you ready to reveal your body at the beach this summer? You may answer, "yes" if you've continued to do the Spring Break Beach Body Workouts, Core Workouts or any variation of the workouts you find in the HGH blog posts. Who knows? Maybe you're already ripped and raring to go because you've faithfully done the Beach Body Workouts we posted last summer. If you're not ready, then there's still time to get into show-off shape and hit the beach this summer.

Whether you're looking to sport a buff beach body or just want to switch up your workout routine a bit, we've found even more beach body workouts for you. We also have some of the hottest bodybuilding supplements to help you achieve the most incredible beach body you've ever had. Check out these YouTube videos we found from Tony Horton and Autumn Calabres. Plus, take a look at the updated Beach Body Workout and Motivation Pinterest board.

Beachbody Live with Tony Horton

Have some fun with Tony Horton and a few of his friends for a fat-blasting workout. To start out the video, Tony and his exercise companions show us how to do several important workout moves. During this workout video you’ll learn about the bottom, middle and top floors, as well as the hook, elbow, sprawl and up. Then, he mixes it up with a little yoga mix for downward dog crunches. He also shows a few of his favorite moves. After that, he’ll take you through a full-body workout using the moves you’ve just experienced and some new ones you’ll learn along the way.

Get a Core Workout with Autumn Fitness

Looking to get some hard core abs? Fitness Trainer Autumn Calabres takes you through some exercises to help you achieve a fit core. As you workout your core muscles, you'll also be strengthening and flattening your abs, while stabilizing your lower back, and improving your balance and coordination. Workout alongside Autumn for 10 reps for each of these five moves.

  • Spiderman
  • 2Knee Drivers
  • Dolphin
  • Single-Leg Teaser
  • Single-Leg Stretch

Beach Body Workout for Buns and Legs

Fitness Trainer Autumn Calabres shares another great beach body workout focusing on the lower body. In this video, she spotlights exercises for your glutes and legs with a fun workout that's even better when you exercise at the beach. By taking on this workout on the beach sand, it'll give you a more stimulating workout that also allows you to easily switch up the intensity level. For a lower impact workout, you can do these exercises in the wet sand. If you want a more intense workout, go into the softer sand. The beach sand also challenges your balance to strengthen your core even more. Autumn will walk you through each of the seven exercises for this beach body workout.

  • Lateral Squats
  • Walking Lunges
  • Side Shuffles
  • Bridges
  • Suicides
  • Line Jumps
  • Side Lunge and Drag

There's no one right answer or a single exercise that can get you to where you want to go, but we've found a series of ab exercises to get you on your way to a washboard stomach.

Whether you choose to focus on core training or want to single out the abs workouts, we've got you covered. You can start with the Strength, Cardio and Ab Workout featuring Jillian Michaels, try the six-pack challenge or you can give some of these other ab workouts we've found. Not only have we gathered together a few abs workout videos to help you along the way, but we've also created a Pinterest board specifically for abs workout videos, exercises and tips.

Core Workout Videos and Tips

Get Fit With Core Workout Training Videos and Tips

Is core training a part of your regular routine? We don’t mean the occasional sit-up or push-up. We mean giving your core muscles a more diversified workout. Strengthening the muscles around your trunk and pelvis, including your abs, obliques, glutes and traps. Your core truly consists of everything except your arms and legs. By working out your core muscles, you can strengthen and flatten your abs, stabilize your lower back, enhance your flexibility, improve your balance and coordination, and even improve your breathing.

The cool thing about core exercises is that you don’t have to go to the gym or have special equipment to get a good workout, but you can if you want to go that route. It’s really just about doing any exercise that involves coordinating your back and abdominal muscles. Whether you’d like to focus on bodyweight exercises or break out the free weights, you can get an incredible core-strengthening workout. We've gathered together some YouTube videos and created a Pinterest board specifically for core workouts to get you on your way to a well-rounded fitness routine.

Get Super Fit with These Avengers Superhero Workouts

Avengers Superhero Workout Videos and Tips

In the spirit of the latest Avengers movie, we're laser focused on training like these superheroes. Although you may never be able to have the amazing powers of Black Widow, Captain America, Hawkeye, Hulk, Iron Man, Thor and the rest of the Avengers, you can workout the way they do. In time, you can even potentially build the incredible strength and fantastic physique they command. It seems like this is the best of both worlds anyway. Kermit the Frog always told us that, “It’s not easy being green.” We bet the Incredible Hulk knows a thing or two about that. But, by training like the Avengers, you can have all of the brawn of these mighty heroes while still getting to enjoy life as a mortal.

There's some superhero in each one of us, so why not workout like one. To get you started, we found some great YouTube videos that feature workouts related to a few of the Avengers: Captain America, Iron Man and Thor.

Exercise Videos and Tips for Arthritis & Aging

Exercise Videos and Tips for Arthritis & Aging

Whether you're trying to control pain or weight, need to lower your blood pressure or just want to feel better, exercise is known to provide these and numerous other health benefits. If you have arthritis or other aches and pains associated with aging, exercise can be instrumental in decreasing joint paint, reducing joint stiffness, improving flexibility, increasing mobility and enhancing overall wellness.

When you have arthritis or other aches and pains that tend to happen as you age, the thought of exercising can be very intimidating. However, the rewards and benefits by doing certain exercises can pay off with huge benefits to your body and quality of life. To give you the encouragement you may need, we have gathered together some great exercise videos and tips to get you started. We've also created a Pinterest board with plenty more tips for exercising as you age or if you have arthritis.

Exercises for People with Hip and Knee Arthritis

A professional physical therapist gives us some non-weight-bearing exercises that can be beneficial for someone who has arthritis in the hip or knee areas. The first exercise is a straight-leg raise, which uses the quadricep muscles and hip flexors. Increasing the intensity is as easy as adding an ankle weight to this exercise. The second exercise we learn about is a bridge, where the gluteus maximus is lifted and works the quadriceps and hamstrings, as well as hip and back extensors. The last exercise demonstrated is a side leg raise, which strengthens the hip abductor. These three exercises target the hip and knee areas, while focusing on strengthening the muscles around the joint, reducing the shock absorption and taking stress off of the joints. Check out this Exercise for Arthritis & Aging: Hip & Knee Arthritis Exercises video for the full presentation of each exercise.

Top 10 Exercises for Osteoarthritis of the Knee&lt

Have osteoarthritis of the knee? The team at the Good Exercise Guide, a group of medical professionals who focus on providing treatment and advice for individuals who need exercise as part of their recovery, created this video. It contains 10 of the best exercises to help individuals with osteoarthritis of the knee. There isn’t any audio, but the visual really says it all as the demonstrator does each exercise. You can follow along in real time for each of these exercises:

  • Long Sitting Calf Stretch
  • Towel Assisted Knee Mobility
  • Short-Arc Quadriceps Exercise
  • Bridging Exercise: Stage 1
  • Prone Knee Bends
  • Sitting Hamstring Stretch
  • Medial Quadriceps Mini Lunge
  • Best Inner-Range Quads Exercise
  • Safe Squats
  • 1Double Heel Raise

Tips for Protecting Your Joints

As you do everyday things like bending or picking up a box, you want to ensure that you are protecting your joints, especially when you have arthritis. This video shows how you can avoid lingering pain by protecting your joints during upper and lower body exercises when you have arthritis. The professional physical therapist and his client demonstrate positioning your body properly, along with the body mechanics of joints, muscles and ligaments to squat or bend to pick up something off of the floor.

Holiday Workouts and Tips

Holiday Workouts and Tips

“Holiday workout” may seem like an oxymoron during this time of year when Halloween treats are still lurking around your house, you’re ready to gobble up some Thanksgiving turkey, and holiday parties and celebrations are right around the corner. If you don’t want to have a jiggly belly like jolly ol’ St. Nick, then we’ve got some holiday workout routines and tips to get you through. We’ve gathered together some rockin’ exercises and helpful hints for keeping your fitness goals on track throughout the holiday season. Plus, we’ve created a Pinterest board focusing on today's topic: Holiday Workouts and Tips.

The Secret to Sticking to Your Diet During the Holidays

How can you keep working toward your fitness goals throughout the holidays? Daniel and Kelly from Fitness Blender answer this question in a way that may surprise you. One of the major keys is to enjoy yourself, and stay away from the worry and guilt. The reality is that if you stick to your usual routine except for the few holidays, you should be fine to indulge on those days. It’s okay to splurge a little here and there, if you keep working out and eating clean the rest of the time. The real secret is to stay away from all of the treats coming into the workplace. If you do have some indulgences, don’t skip meals to try to counteract it. This won’t help at all in the long run. There’s a fun blooper section at the end of this video as well.

Helpful Holiday Hints and a Workout Too

Holiday parties and celebrations can wreak havoc on your healthful eating and workout habits. All of the sweet treats and indulgences that come with these events can be difficult to turn down, and being short on time can sabotage your workouts. Health and fitness consultant, Alycia Kluegl, provides some helpful holiday party tips and also shares a great workout. A few of her top tips are.

Don't got the party hungry. Limit alcoholic drinks. Socialize away from the food and bar.

Plus, the Power Three full-body workout she recommends, includes:

Jump Squats Push ups with Hip Extension Half Sit Ups

Pump up Your Holiday Workout

Vertical from Barstarzz leads us in a high intensity workout that's ideal for burning fat and building muscle. You can ban the bulge with this fast-paced workout that features:

High Knees Mountain Climbers Hardcore Burpees Pull ups Dips Push ups

The More the Merrier

We've put together a vast selection of exercises and tips to help you enjoy the holidays, while maintaining your fitness routine. Check out HGH.com's Holiday Workouts and Tips Pinterest board to stay motivated throughout the holiday season.
