One of the great things about living in Thailand is the ability to easily escape to the beach for the weekend, something that I think should be done at least once every two months. However, it had been over a year since my last beach visit, which is criminal given how easy it is to get to paradise!
It’s amazing how being surrounded by nature and fresh air can help clear and refresh your mind. I always have positive thoughts and ideas on work and life when I’m at the beach or countryside, and with all the fresh fish and fruit around it’s pretty easy to compliment the break with a delicious paleo diet to truly revitalize the body and mind.
Don’t get me wrong – Bangkok is a fantastic, lively place to live, but sometimes you have to remove the smoke, concrete and distractions to fully think clearly.
So, on the beach and with my phone switched off for two days I decided to squeeze in a quick TRX bodyweight circuit on the beach. Here I work through a few basic upper body exercises that most people should be able to do – body position can be adjusted easily with the TRX to make an exercise harder or easier through all ability levels.
If you’re trying out this circuit I’d recommend doing 3-4 rounds with a minute’s rest between circuits – which should bring your workout to about 20-30 minutes overall.
