The holidays are finally here and it's time to drop what you're doing and get away for a bit… So how does your dream body fit into these plans? This summer, take care of your figure with Domyos! We have concocted a programme of 4 exercises to do on the beach or in the water.


Exercise 1: walking along the edge of the water

  • What to do:: take a large stride with your right leg and bend your knee as you place your foot on the ground. Gently lift your left heel. Your chest should remain upright. Repeat on the left.


  • The advantages: this exercise uses your quadriceps and the resistance of the water. Walking on the sand also make you less stable which calls on your deep muscles.


  • Repetitions: ideally, walk for 30 minutes with the water halfway up your shin.


Exercise 2: building up your glutes

  • What to do: lie on your stomach with your hands to the side of your head under your forehead. Extend your legs and point your toes towards the floor. Raise your legs slightly. Squeeze your glutes, lift your knees and part of your thighs off your towel. Lift your legs and move them apart slightly, then put them back down, making sure that your toes are still pointing towards the floor.


  • The advantages: this exercise mainly uses your gluteus maximus and hamstrings.


  • Repetitions: ideally, do 3 sets of about 20 reps.


Exercise 3: strengthening your abdominals

  • What to do: lie on your stomach with your hands under your forehead and your head in line with your spine. Squeeze your legs and abs then raise your torso, keeping your hips on the floor. Count to five then lower your body back onto the floor, without collapsing. The movement should only be small.


  • The advantages: this exercise uses the major stomach muscles, particularly your internal and external obliques.


  • Repetitions: ideally, do 3 sets of about 20 reps.


Exercise 4: toning your upper body

  • What to do: stand with the water at shoulder height. Extend your arms to the side and keep your thumbs raised. Bring them to the front then to the back. Make sure you keep your feet flat and look straight ahead.


  • The advantages: this simple exercise works your shoulders as well as your back, chest and arm muscles.


  • Repetitions: ideally, do 3 sets of about 20 reps.
