Tommy Bahama & SELF Magazine #3

Hey friends!  I’m back with more Tommy Bahama/Self Magazine goodness today in part three of my four post series where I share some Spring/Summer beachy fashion inspiration and exercises to get you in shape for my new favorite sport-stand up paddle boarding!  {Play catch up here and here if you missed}

Ok, let’s start with these pants.  Crazy good, RIGHT?!  I’m pretty much wearing them non-stop.  High waisted, comfortable, adorable- they check all my boxes.  And on beach days, with this top, I’m just thinking it doesn’t get much cuter (except those two girls running into the ocean with their floaties!)  Click through for the second part of the post- exercises to work that upper body!  Hope you love!  xx- Sarah    {Photos: Lou Mora}

Paddle Shoulder Raises-  Begin with legs wide, back knee slightly bent and heel pushing strongly back.  Hold paddle directly in front of body, arms shoulder distance apart.  Raise and lower 10 times.  Repeat with legs in opposite position.


Tricep (Chataranga) Push-up-  Starting from a high plank position, shoulders over wrists, take a deep breath in and begin to bend your elbows, lowering your body as you breath out.  Keep abs engaged, shoulders strong and chest open.  Raise and lower ten times.  If you struggle to maintain position lower to your knees to modify.


Modified Side Plank-  Begin on your hands and knees, hands shoulder-width apart.   Straighten one leg and raise your arm to the sky.  Engage your abs, keep your shoulders strong and look up.  Hold for 5-10 breaths and repeat on the other side.


Side Plank- Begin in plank position, feet together and hands shoulder width apart.  Roll to one side, lift arm to sky and look up.  Engage abs, lift with hips and keep shoulders strong.  Hold for 5-10 breaths and repeat on the other side.


Downward Facing Dog- Begin on hands and knees with arms shoulder’s width apart and knees hip’s width distance.  Lift knees off the floor, drawing your naval into your back.  Gently straighten your legs, reaching your heels to the ground.  Take 5-10 slow, deep breaths.


Forward Bend Shoulder Stretch-  Start with feet hip’s width distance apart.  Lock fingers behind back and slowly bend forward.  Stretch arms over-head and press face towards your knees.  Keep knees from locking and stretch to the point that feels best to you!
