Practicing sports at the beach is trendy
When summer arrives, what we most want is to go to our favorite beaches, sunbathe and swim in the sea. It is a time to go out, enjoy the good weather and have fun. And it is also the perfect period to practice sport at the beach. In both water and sand, sports activities at sea have multiple health benefits, and it’s super fun!
Exercising helps us improve our fitness and our overall health. It is also one of the most recommended pastimes. The atmosphere that is breathed on the shore, next to salt water and outdoors, is the most suitable for physical exercises. When we exercise on the beach, we work the muscles of the body in a more intense way. That is because the surface of the sand is very unstable. In addition, we perform a very high aerobic work and increase our resistance.
Outdoor sports also benefit us psychologically. Sport on the beach is an escape, a relaxing and funny way to have a perfect vacation.
Of course, it is necessary to take some precautions. Always hydrate yourself properly by drinking lots of water or some soda, and protect yourself from the sun with sunscreen. Temperatures in July and August in the Mediterranean Sea can exceed 35 degrees. Therefore, the protector will prevent the skin from burning and from having bigger problems.
It is also advisable to wear a cap and, when we have finished playing, running or walking, to get in the water to refresh ourselves.
The most fashionable sports on the Costa Blanca are paddle, football, running, volleyball and windsurfing. Of course, water activities such as swimming and diving are a classic of summer. And we can not forget the walks along the shore, which are very beneficial especially for the elderly.
