Ready for spring break? I know I am! Although I do fitness coaching on the side, run live Insanity workouts, etc. I do hold down a full time job as a teacher and band director. And like all of my fellow educators out there, we work hard during the school year and although we love our work in the classroom, when it's time for a break we enjoy ourselves :)
But that doesn't mean we let up too much on our workouts. However, traveling, eating out, family times, etc. sometimes doesn't fit too well with sticking with a certain workout program. So what can you do? Give up completely or just don't workout for that week or two that you are off?
Absolutely not! And that's where the Traveling Workout comes into play. Read on and leave a comment if you are going to try this while traveling!
Our whole goal with this traveling workout is basically to maintain where you are currently without losing any ground as far as your goals.
The good news is we'll keep it simple and give you a routine that you can do with something you'll have easily at hand: luggage (obviously, use what you have to work with here---if your luggage is light, then you might have to do more reps... if you pack like my wife, then you'll be built like Ahh-nold in no time ;)
Warm-up consisting of light jog, twist and pivots, arm circles, step back lunges, and other dynamic movements (2 mins)
1. Bear Crawl Luggage Pushup 1 Minute
2. Bridge Planks with Burpee 1 Minute
3. 4 point jumps around Luggage 1 Min.
4. Front Luggage Squats 1 Min.
1 Min. rest and repeat
1. Luggage Curl 30 sec each Arm
2. Atlas with luggage (30 sec each side)
3. Luggage Press 30 Seconds Each Arm
4. Interval Hop Squats with Luggage (20 sec. easy, med. then intense)
1 min. rest and repeat
The whole workout should take about 20 minutes with warm-up and cool down. If you don't have that kind of time then simply just stick to two rounds of Circuit 1 or 1 Round of both!
Enjoy and happy travels!
