Spring Break & Travel Workout Day 1

It’s here, Spring Break, Easter, the ol’ spring vacation! For many of us, this is the first test of our New Years Resolutions to get our bodies tight and ready for summer. We are about four months in now from the beginning of the year and things should be firing on all cylinders.

But now we are faced with a new problem, how do we keep it together on this trip?

Behold a simple, yet brutally efficient plan to keep things tight while in the hotel, camping or where ever our travels take us. No equipment required, I promise ­čÖé

Warmup

A quick and dynamic warmup is in order.

Take 2 minutes and do the following combination

  • 10 walking lunges
  • 10 pushups (if you can’t do regular pushups then by all means do them from your knees)
  • 10 Arm rotations forward
  • 10 Arm rotations backward
  • 30 High Knee’s

If you need more time to get loose go for it, but at least do the 2 minutes to get started.

Workout

The following exercise is to be done as one continuous set, that is, do all exercises without stopping and then rest. 

3 rounds of:

  • 10 Lunges (alternating legs)
  • 1-Pushup
  • 1-Left Side Plank :10┬áseconds
  • 1-Pushup
  • Right Side Plank :10 seconds
  • 10 Lunges (alternating legs)
  • 1-Pushup
  • Left Side Plank :10┬áseconds
  • 1-Pushup
  • Right Side Plank :10 seconds
  • Plank :30 seconds
  • 10 Squats
  • Rest 1:00

Then 10:00-30:00 minutes of cardio activity of your choice:

Run, Swim, Bike or Hike

Or if you are stuck in a hotel room or you are just feeling pretty rambunctious you can swap out the slow relaxed cardio for 5:00 of burpees! 

Stay tuned for travel workout #2
