Hotel workout plan

Posted Jan 11 2013 12:38am

I must confess, and tell you that travel is the one thing that definitely throws me off track when it comes to keeping up my fitness. It’s my Achilles heel.  Since 2013 is clearly going to be a travel year for me, I have decided to be well prepared and come up with a hotel workout plan!

Despite the fact that I have uber light luggage , I will not be able to take any weights with me, so my workouts will be based purely on body weight. All I’ll have with me are my workout clothes and light trainers. I won’t be going to the hotel gym either as I doubt I will have time for it,  so my workouts will be restricted to a hotel room.

Hotel-Workouts with no equipment

The first trip I am taking this year is a conference in the US.  It is 3 days long. I know from experience that I’m going to be really busy between meetings, educational sessions as well as the evening social events, I expect my days to be 10 hour plus. So I need a short workout that I can do in my hotel room, first thing in the morning, so I can then shower head to breakfast. It is really important that my workout doesn’t exhaust me completely but leaves me charged up and ready to mingle all day long! I do not want anything too complicated either since I am not sure how much room I will have for my hotel workout.

I decided that the easiest way to come up with  a 4 simple hotel workout plans that I can use throughout my trip.

*Note I just the gymboss app for iPhone as a timer

Hotel room Warm up:  (3 minutes: 30 minutes per exercise)

  • Jumping on the spot
  • Jogging on the spot
  • Alternating high knees
  • Alternating Side stretches
  • Mountain Climbers
  • Jumping Jacks

 

Hotel workout plan #1

1 minute per exercise . Repeat exercises 4 times . Total time of workout 16 minutes

  • Push ups
  • Squats
  • Alternating lunges with front kick
  • Sumo lunges

 

Hotel workout plan #2

1 minute per exercise . Repeat exercises 4 times . Total time of workout 16 minutes

  • Reverse push ups
  • Chair step up
  • Bicycle

 

Hotel workout plan #3

1 minute per exercise . Repeat exercises 4 times . Total time of workout 16 minutes

  • Burpees
  • Lunges
  • Push ups
  • Bicycle

 

Hotel workout plan #4

1 minute per exercise . Repeat exercises 4 times . Total time of workout 16 minutes

  • Reverse push up
  • Donkey kicks
  • Sumo lunges
  • Crunches with punches at the top

 

I set my timer to 16 rounds of 1 minute each with no rest in between. Obviously if you are tired you should stop, catch your breath before you can continue. This method of exercise is based on that of ME Spark Metabolic Effect workouts  - Push til you cant, Rest til you can. Just keep on going right through the workout until you feel tired, then stop, until you can continue again. If you are tired, that is great, that is the Metabolic effect!
