Let’s face it, your life is spent on airplanes, living in hotels, eating in some of the most delightful restaurants, but keeping a consistent workout doesn’t seem possible (at least that’s what you think). You’re faced with strict meeting schedules, limited workout equipment or even in some cases no workout facility. This all calls for a reason to deviate from a regular workout routine. All that hard work you put in feels wasted and here begins the cycle of your yo-yo pattern.
Don’t let a travel schedule control the reason you get out of sync with your workouts. If you’ve got the time, we’ve got the answers.
These are scenarios that you can expect when traveling. The first step is scope out the scene- do they have an exercise room? If so what does it offer? Best case scenario, the basic setup includes an elliptical, recumbent bike, a treadmill, stability balls and dumbbells.
Here’s a sample workout utilizing your basic hotel exercise room equipment:
8 alternating presses
8 alternating Ys
8 alternating curls
8 alternating rows
8 front, lateral, transverse
12 squat and curls
Repeat 4 times
Now if they don’t offer a facility or the exercise room is filled with travelers just like you, trying to get in their workout, then we’ve got Plan B.
No equipment, no space, well no problem! You’ve got all that you need… and that’s YOU! So no excuses, you can make it happen.
Check out this great workout that requires no equipment at all:
12 push ups
6 anterior reaches (both sides-12 total)
12 gentle mountain climbers
Repeat 3 times
Had an early start? Long day? Back to back meetings? No energy to leave the room? There’s still an answer. Not only can it be done right in your room, but it can only take you less than 15 minutes. Short and sweet!
