Fitness Friday: September 26, 2014

Recently one of my clients asked me for workouts he could do while traveling with little to no equipment.  Easy peasy!  The idea is to minimize time spent exercising and maximize the number of muscles you use, because most people don’t want to be as efficient as they can when traveling.  You want to see the sights, right?  Ideally,  I thought these suggestions might come in handy for you, my loyal blog readers, too.  So here they are:

Workouts for Travel

Warm-up Ideas:

  • Run stairs.
  • Perform air squats, jumping lunges and mountain climbers in a circuit.
  • March in place.
  • Kick it old school with jumping jacks!

Workout 1: No Equipment Needed

  • 25 squats
  • 10 push ups
  • 25 crunches
  • 10 dips

Repeat as many rounds as you can in 15 minutes.

Workout 2: Using Dumbbells

  • Curl with over-head press
  • Front squat with dumbbells (wider stance, weights resting on your collar bone)
  • Alternating lateral then front raises
  • Bent over rows, followed immediately by triceps kickbacks
  • Push ups

Complete each exercise for 10-12 reps.  Complete the circuit 3 times.

Cool Down Ideas:

  • Take a walk and enjoy the view.
  • Stretch.

As usual, if you have questions, hit me up!  Hope it’s a great weekend!
