In one of my recent travels, the hotel I stayed at did not have a work out facility. To start my day, I typically do a variation of weights and cardio. Through some trial and error, I found a routine that would cover the following in less than 30 minutes:
- Front and Back of Legs
- Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
- Abs and Lower Back
The work out consisted of a warm up and then circuit training of a series of four different exercises. The warm up consists of the following and are done one right after another without breaks:
Next, complete a 15-20 minute circuit of a series of four workout routines. Continue to repeat the four workouts until the time is up. The following was the routine I used:
- 20 body weight squats using a chair
- 15 incline push ups using the edge of a desk
- 10 one arm row utilizing luggage as weight
- 10 reverse crunches
Repeat for 15-20 minutes.
I found this routine to create a great workout to start the day off. It is also portable for travels. Posting out on the blog to share with others and have as a quick reference point.
