It’s almost Spring Break here in Minnesota, so we thought we’d share three workouts that travel well.
This is an easy time of year to fall off your exercise routine while you travel. Maybe your hotel doesn’t have a gym, or maybe you’re stuck at home in a snow storm.
Whatever the case, doing an at-home workout isn’t out of reach! Here are a few spring break travel workouts to get you through the week:
Workout 1: Push-up / Squat Ladder
Note: Push-up regressions could include high planks or plank shoulder taps. Squat alternatives could include step-ups, glute bridges, or even a switch to hip hinges.
There are two ways to approach this ladder workout:
…and so on until you can’t complete the next increment of 5 push-ups. You could also choose a different number of reps based on your fitness level.
Then, if you have time and you’re not totally fried, go back down the ladder.
1 push-up. 1 squat.
2 push-ups. 2 squats.
3 push-up. 3 squats.
…and so on until you can’t complete the next increment of push-ups.
Workout 2: 10-exercise Movement Ladder
Perform exercise 1 for 30 seconds. Then rest for 30 seconds.
Perform exercise 1 for 30 seconds, followed by exercise 2 for 30 seconds, and then rest for 30 seconds.
Add an exercise each round until the last round is all 10 exercises.
NOTE: You can use a rep count (e.g., 15) instead of time if you prefer!
Here’s an example workout that you can do with resistance bands (perfect for travel).
Exercise 1: Bent-over Rows
Exercise 2: High Pulls
Exercise 3: Romanian Deadlifts (RDLs)
Exercise 4: Split-Stance Incline Chest Press
Exercise 5: Pull-aparts
Exercise 6: Front Squats
Exercise 7: Overhead Press or Front Raise
Exercise 8: Overhead Triceps Extensions
Exercise 9: Hammer Curls
Exercise 10: Chest Press
