We live in a fast moving environment. Everything is on the go. We all have busy lives, careers, and family that makes going into the gym hard at times.
I get asked this question a lot by our members who live a busy -on the go lifestyle. They travel for work or are just traveling for fun but want to stay on top of their fitness.
What workouts can I do on the road? Most of the time my answer is body weight workouts.
Here is a small guide to help you out on your next getaway.
Always be sure you can do these workouts with proper form for optimum results. And always make sure you do a quick warm up to get blood pumping through your muscles.
-warm up; I recommend a heart racer of 15 secs of quick mountain climbers, running in place, jumping jacks and butt kicks.
Workout 1: Just like we do during our sessions set your timer at 6 minutes. Do as many rounds as you can during the 6 minutes until time runs out.
Lunges/ Jump Lunges 10-12 reps without resting in between reps (each side)
-Pushups 10-12 reps no rest period.
-Quick quats/Jump squats no rest.
-Back lunge side to side 10-12 rest no rest (each side)
-Plank to toe touch ( opposite hand opposite foot)
Workout 2: Four exercises do them for 30 seconds, take a quick 15 second breather and continue to next exercise. 8 sets in total each exercise will be done twice.
-Jumping jacks/ squat jack
-Plank to shoulder touch(alternating sides)
Workout 3: each exercise should be done by reps, meaning 10 reps on each moment will equal one set. Do a total of 3 set of each exercise, rest 60 seconds in between sets.
-Pushups (12 reps)
-Jump squat(12 reps)
-Bear crawl(12 reps)
-Burpees (12 reps)
-Walking lunges(12 reps each side)
-Shoulder taps (alternating sides)
-Planks (elbows to hands)(12 reps)
-Mountain climbers(12 reps)
Workout 4: Each moment to be performed for 30 seconds and resting for 10 seconds. Quick breather for 30 seconds between sets.
-Mountain climbers (30 secs rest 10 secs)
-Situps (30 secs rest 10 secs)
-Plank (30 secs rest 10 secs)
-Russian twist (30 secs rest 10 secs)
Workout 5: This last workout should get your heart rate through the roof. Moving at a fast moving pace only resting between sets (if needed). Move as quickly as you can but don’t sacrifice form.
