If you don’t like the idea of working out – because, seriously, I’m not a huge fan either – all you have to do is to put on your swimsuit and goggles and head to the nearest pool or beach. Swimming is one of the best full body workouts out there! It builds the muscles in the arms and legs while strengthening your core (a.ka. abs). It also makes your limbs flexible and reduces injuries and pain to the joints. Studies show it can decrease your risk of preventable diseases including hypertension and cardiovascular disorders. If you have a back problem, swimming is the exercise to keep you fit and healthy. It is low-impact it is even recommended to moms-to-be!

One of my favorite full body workouts is planking. For one, it doesn’t force me to do anything else, meaning I just try to hold the position for as long as I could, and yet I get awesome results. Second, it has many benefits as it works the muscles of the back, abs, glutes, legs, and, depending on, the actual plank you’re doing, your arms. Mentally, it improves discipline and even helps reduce the signs of depression. Want to bet? The try this 28-day planking challenge! Once you’ve mastered planking, you can now proceed to push-up, which is a classic full-body workout, or even yoga postures like sun salutations.
