Hey, girl, hey!
I feel like it’s been a while since we have talked, and I am ready to share some workout love with ya! I have recently been traveling more than usual, and let me tell you, it can be so tough to get a workout in. Traveling always exhausts me, and I usually want to skip my workouts (amen, amen?!). This is where I tell myself, “Just five minutes okay? You can do that!” and then I end up moving past the five minutes. Have any of you ever tried to trick yourself like that? I know I do all the time!
Okay, Okay — back to the deets. Over the past month, while traveling, I realized I needed to come up with a plan of action to stay the course. I didn’t always have access to weights, so I wrote down this quick but effective workout, and I am going to share it with you! It’s not magic, but rather just a good overall body workout that is guaranteed to work up a sweat.
I find that by having a workout prepared, I am more likely to complete the workout. If I have to come up with it off the cuff, it usually doesn’t happen. Have a few workouts saved in your notes or screenshots so that whenever you’re on the go, you’ll stick to your guns (literally . . . hah!). Without further ado — here it is, lovelies!
- 5 up-downs (half burpees)
- 10 air squats (wide stance)
- 10 tricep chair dips (or hotel bed, etc.)
- 20-second superman hold (back + core)
- 20-second plank
- 20 ab flutter kicks (total)
- 20-second glute bridge hold (you can add pulses)
- 10 jump squats (as HIGH as you can jump)
- 5 up-downs
Repeat 2-4 times w/a minute or two rest in between!
