Staying motivated to keep with your fitness routine while traveling is beyond hard. There are so many distractions, things to do and people to see, who has time to work out? Admittedly, sometimes there aren’t enough hours in the day and you either can’t get in a gym sesh or don’t want to because you are too busy exploring. Believe me I get it! But there is balance to be found even when on the road.
Dumbell Tricep Extension
Target Areas: Triceps, Upper Back,
To do an overhead tricep extension, stand with your feet hip-width apart or sit on a high-back weight bench. Grasp a dumbbell with both hands and extend your arms overhead. Bend your elbows to lower the weight behind you, stopping just before the weight hits the back of the head. Repeat for 12 reps x 4 sets
Dumbell Pushup + Row
Target Areas: Chest, Upper Back, Abs
Place a pair of dumbbells, slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Set yourself in a pushup position with hands on dumbbells. Lower your body to the floor, pause, then complete 1 push up. Once you’re back in the starting position, row the dumbbell on one side to the side of your chest by pulling the dumbbell upwards. Pause, then lower the dumbbell back down, and repeat the same movement with your other arm. Repeat for 10 reps X 3 sets.
Target Muscles: Back, Shoulders, Arms
Hang on a bar with your hands more than shoulder width apart. Pull until the bar reaches chin level and then pause. Repeat for as many as you can do x 3 sets. If you are still working on your pull up, stand on a box and hang with your chin above the bar. Lower yourself down slowly for 5 seconds each time. This will target the same muscles and if you stick with this movement, it will help you achieve your first pull up! Max pull ups x 3 sets.
Target Muscles: Abs and Hip Flexors
Position your body on the vertical leg raise bench so that your forearms are resting on the pads next to the torso and holding on to the handles. Lift your knees up to your chest and back down for one rep. Repeat for 12 reps x 3 sets.
