Working out in Spring: Our Top Exercises

While the saying goes ‘summer bodies are made in winter’, as spring approaches, you may want to ramp things up a bit when it comes to exercises. Though not a general rule, we always think the more we workout now, the more we can eat and drink when on Holibobs. That’s how it works, right? Well, maybe it’s not the best mindset, but the thought of a nice cold one on the beach will certainly give you the motivation to get your hiney to the gym.

Wondering what exercises will help you meet your summer body goals? If so, below are a few you may wish to get on board with.


When talking with our amazing/sweaty members, the consensus is that losing weight (or ‘stripping fat’ if you are a real gym bunny) is one of the biggest objectives for summer.

If this is the case for you, then it is time to get your sweat on with a bit of cardio. Whether using cardio to get the heart rate up in the form of a warm-up or making cardio the main event of your workout; it’s essential that you get cardio in there somewhere. Exercises that can make for the best results include:

  • Running
  • Cycling
  • Rowing
  • Skipping.

Booty Booty Booty!

Big booties are well and truly in season this year. So, if you want to keep up with the Kardashians, try out these cheeky, booty-popping workouts.

  • Squat Jumps
  • Barbell Hip Thrusts
  • Walking Lunges
  • Barbell Deadlifts
  • Single Leg Deadlifts.

Blitz the belly

Whether opting for a crop top, bikini, speedos or a mankini (whatever floats your boat), you will find yourself bearing your torso at some point this summer. In order to get those abs looking fab, why not give the below excises a go?

  • Glute Bridge
  • Bicycle Crunch
  • High Knees
  • Reverse Crunch
  • Mountain Climber
  • Windshield Wiper.

All targeting different parts of your belly, doing just a few minutes of each every day will encourage pretty quick results.
