Only have a couple of weeks left to get in shape before you go back to school? I mean, what if that cute boy you were totally crushing on all last year ends up being in one of your classes? No worries, we’ve got a workout that can get you fit while you cherish these last couple of weeks of fun in the sun. Our answer? Beach volleyball.
3 Reasons Why Beach Volleyball Is a Good Workout
1. It burns calories. Because you’re in the sand, which is an unstable surface that’s harder to move in than on grass or concrete, an hour-long game of beach volleyball burns quite a few calories. From all the running, jumping and diving, you can expect to burn 484 calories an hour.
2. It’s a full-body workout. Beach volleyball uses every part of your body. You use your arms, shoulders and chest to bump, spike and serve the volleyball; you use your legs to run through that sand and squat down to reach the volleyball; and you use your core to stay balanced while you do all that. Beach volleyball is truly a full-body workout!
3. It doesn’t feel like “working out.” This is perhaps the best reason of all! Because you’re so focused on the beach volleyball game and getting to the ball, you forget about how hard you’re working or how many minutes you’ve been playing. It’s a game, and it’s easy to play for more than an hour without even realizing it!
