3 Travel Workouts in 30 Minutes or less

Hey everybody,

One thing that happens in life for anybody that I work with is travel. People go places. They get caught up in work. Or vacation. Or just need to get away for a little while. And it’s amazing!!!

Looking for your next adventure? Take part in an obstacle course! Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, GoRuck…

I am a huge advocate of adventure, seeing new places and travelling to far away lands. Which is why I always do my best to program for people movements and exercises they can do without too much equipment. If your biggest barrier to exercise is not having a gym – you need to find yourself a new program! You can move, exercise AND  find fun/active things to do no matter where you are!

With that said, a bunch of people have been clamoring for the best ways to continue with health progress while abstaining from completely giving in to the temptations of eating out, having one too many brews and getting into trouble with your trainer.

The basic movements we perform in a well rounded exercise program include activities that you should be performing as living, breathing, functioning human beans: Push, pull, squat, hinging and being a machine.

Without further ado,

WORKOUT 1 – Death March

Rep scheme is rounds of 10 reps, then 9 reps, then 8 reps and so on until you finish 1 rep of each exercise!

Pushups
Squat Jumps
