Hotel Workout – Yes You Can!

Hotel Workout | Fit Travel | 20 Minute Workout | Move Your Body | Enjoy Every Day

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s well …. it’s not Superman ….  it’s a frustrated traveler who just wants to get to get her hotel and get her workout in! Can you relate?  Travel can be exhausting but not in the good-kind of way. Standing in airport lines. Sitting on teeny tiny airline seats. Waiting around for luggage. And in the midst of it all, you don’t even have your regular workout to energize your tired mind and body.

Don’t fret …  you can get it done in 20 minutes in your hotel room.  This five-move, full-body workout will take you less than 20 minutes but will give you the energy to enjoy your trip.  You can even work off some of those delicious business dinners or vacation treats.  All you need is a little space and something to time seconds with.

 

Here is the plan:

  • You will perform each exercise for 20 seconds hard, then rest for 10 seconds.
  • Repeat for 4 times through, and then move to the next exercise.

 

There is cardio, upper body, lower body and core, so fasten your seatbelt and get ready to burn off some serious calories!

 

Skaters

Start with your legs slightly wider than shoulder distance apart and arms at the sides.

Bring one leg behind at a slight angle into a reverse lunge. The front knee will come to a 90-degree angle.

Swing the arms in front of that bent knee and leap the back leg forward to switch sides in a skating motion. Arms alternate as you switch sides like a speed skater.

Leap far and fast for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 second. Repeat for a total of 4 rounds.

 

Push-ups with a Punch

Begin in a plank position with your shoulders over your wrists, your feet together, and your body in a straight line.

Keeping your body straight, bend your arms to lower your body toward the floor.

Straighten your arms to push your body back up into plank position as you punch your right arm forward.  Return your hand to the floor, lower back to the bottom of your push-up and repeat on the opposite side.

Perform as many as you can for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat for a total of 4 rounds.

 

High Knees

Start standing with feet hip distance apart.

Lift up one knee as high as it will go and raise the opposite arm, then switch quickly. Continue alternating arms and legs.

 Run fast for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat for a total of four rounds.

 

Squats on Toes

Start standing and lift heels high. Keeping your abs engaged slowly drop into a squat bringing your hips to knee height.

Squeeze your glutes and return to you starting position.

Do as many as you can for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat for a total of 4 rounds.

 

Plank Jacks

Begin in a plank position with your shoulders over your wrists, your feet together, and your body in a straight line.

Similar to a jumping jack, jump your feet wide keeping your buttocks down. Jump your feet back together.

Jack fast but controlled for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds. Repeat for a total of four rounds.

 

Move your body, put good things in and ENJOY every day!
