Hotel Room Workout

There is nothing worse than coming back from a holiday and feeling “blurgh & blah” because you have slightly overindulged and now the looming prospect of returning to the gym is overwhelming. When I travel or go on holiday I do enjoy myself (at time probably more than I should) but I also want to make sure that my body stays in good condition so I like to do 2-3 mini workouts just to “maintain” all the hard work I do when back at home in my routine lifestyle. The problem however is not finding the motivation while in that chilled, relaxed holiday vibe (ok, sometimes that is a problem…) but the main issue is the hotel gyms themselves – often located in the basement in a 2m x 2m concrete box with a faulty treadmill, only 2 or 3 dumbbells (many of which are missing their pair) and if you are really lucky maybe bench. It’s gyms like this that don’t inspire that somewhat already lacking motivation. So what’s a fit gal to do? I often do a short workout in my own hotel room, it’s easier than you think and very convenient – normally I do mine when I first get up, that way I can really enjoy the hotel breakfast and have the rest of the day to relax.

Below is my super easy hotel room workout. It works your whole body & the only equipment you need is a tiny bit of space and a chair.

  • 15 x push ups                          *beginners complete on knees
  • 15 x tricep dips
  • 15 x jump squats                    *beginners do normal squats
  • 16 x side lunges with leg on chair (8 per leg)
  • 40 mountain climbers (opposite knee to elbow)
  • 40 bicycle crunches

Complete the above exercises for 5 rounds, stopping/having as little rest as possible.

Now you can enjoy your afternoon cocktails just that little bit more!

    Well just in time for all that chicken tikka I am about to consume! How long before my legs grow long and my arms ripple just like you Goddess of Sweat? x

      Note sure about the growing of limbs (although I hear there are now surgeries for that…) However as for rippling arms sticking to a 3 sessions x week program for a total 12 weeks can produce great results!
