QUICK TRAVEL WORKOUT Runners and other recreational athletes-in-training who hit the road for work might hope to book places to stay at destinations that have fitness centers. High-end hotels have such amenities and oftentimes also offer spa, pool, or even running track facilities. But if this level of comfort is not what is available for your trip, an affordable inn with a treadmill in a small room would be a welcome, if low end luxury. After working diligently to achieve a certain level of fitness or training, an upcoming 3-5 night stay away from home can appear to be a setback in the making if travelers must rely on themselves to secure needed exercise opportunities.
If new to strength training, overcoming uncertainty and inertia to start could have been the most difficult part of the process. A pause in schedule could slow precious momentum. Valetmag.com offers a solution to this problem with an in-room bodyweight workout consisting of a warm-up and 4 exercises: Burpees, triceps dips, decline push-ups, and overhead squats.
Since it’s Saturday, if you’re on a trip, check out the demonstrations if you aren’t familiar with these moves. Perform the quick workout, and go exploring and sightseeing if possible!
RUN AND MOVE HAPPY!
