Travel Workouts

*While traveling try to do your workout in the morning. It will help you adjust to different time zones more quickly and will give you the flexibility of doing whatever you want in the evening.  Not to mention that it will give you a fresh, clear mind for the day ahead.

Travel Workout #1

5min Burn & Stretch

This is the morning routine I do on my more active vacations where Im on my feet a lot.  It helps me to engage my core, keep my upper body strong and stretch my lower back spine (which become SO tight while traveling) so that I feel strong and connected to my body throughout the day.

1. 10 push ups

2. 5 squats then 90degree jump to Rt., jump Lt. on next round

    (5 squats, 90degree jump to Rt., repeat 3 more x’s until facing forward then move on to next exercise)

3. plank hold, 45sec.

repeat

standing head to knee (from yoga for travel)

standing bow (from yoga for travel)

do 30 alt. hip dips

run down, back up
