If you've ever tried beach volleyball you know it's a tough workout. Jumping and landing in sand gives leg muscles a serious toning session and burns tons of calories, helping uncover your toned abs.
There's even science to prove the amazing power of sand workouts: A new study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found greater fitness benefits when athletes trained on sand versus grass. The researchers also note that working out on sand reduces stress on bones and results in less muscle soreness afterward.
You don't need to be an experienced volleyball athlete to reap the rewards. Grab some friends and hit the ball around! The goal is for one person to pass the ball, another to set, and then a third person to hit the ball over the net. Try to keep the ball in play as long as possible (games are played to 21). You should feel your heart pumping and muscles shaking by the time there's a winner.
Score a strong, sexy stomach without ever doing a boring "abs workout" again!
