Sculpt your body / Regenerate your muscles / Lose fat mass

If it's been a while since you stopped moving, it's in your best interest to turn to aquatic physical activities if you want to return to sport at the start of the school year. Aquabiking, in particular, is the ideal practice for those who want to rediscover the taste for gentle effort.

In water, your joints are protected and venous return is encouraged 1 . Your body becomes toned. By pedaling underwater, you work your abdominals in depth and promote better fat burning. Your figure thanks you.

If you don't like cycling, you can always just swim or choose to swim with fins. These two sports are complete and make all of your muscles work in harmony. They also allow you to relax intensely and can be used in all seasons.

Indoor sports: for the most homebodies

Do you have little time to devote to sport at the start of the school year but you really want to practice physical activity in order to maintain or regain your shape? Why not get moving without leaving your house?

The skipping rope is a great companion. With it, you take overall care of your body. The heart becomes invigorated, venous return improves and you burn many calories because jumping rope is an intense activity. It is not without reason that boxers practice it regularly. They know that ten minutes of rope is equivalent to thirty minutes of running. 2

The exercise bike – or home trainer – is also a good idea for an activity to put on the back-to-school menu. This fitness machine is great for maintaining your muscle mass. You can control the intensity of your work by increasing the resistance of the bike.

Outdoor sports: for adventurers

Adventurers and those who need some fresh air often prefer to escape for running or trail sessions. These activities are excellent for the cardio-respiratory and promote better self-esteem, because they offer the opportunity to constantly push one's limits.

Running and trail running are easily done alone but it is recommended to do them in a group. For what ? It can be difficult to go for a solo run in the middle of winter or in the rain. Having a group of friends allows you to motivate yourself and improve your performance. You might as well not deprive yourself of it!
