Vacation weight is a real problem. You’re eating good food, and skipping your usual gym routine. We all know how it works, you go on vacation and you feel like since you don’t have your gym membership and the equipment, that you should just take the whole week off. WRONG. It is so much harder to get back to the “real world routine” if that includes having to drag yourself back into hitting the gym, too. Take 20 minutes to knock out this circuit 3 times in the hotel room before you hop in the shower, because these exercises don’t require anything except your own bodyweight.
15 Squats- This is an excellent warm-up exercise to get the blood flowing.
15 Burpees- This is a cardiovascular based exercise that works various muscle groups, all in one exercise.
30 Lunges (15 each leg)- These will build muscle in your quads and stretch your hamstrings out.
15 V Ups- This exercise is a variation on sit ups, but a little less difficult.
15 Glute Bridges- Squeeze your glutes, and raise your hips toward the sky.
15 Pushups- This is a classic exercise for a reason, as it builds shoulder and arm strength.
45 Second Plank- Squeeze your core tight and breathe deeply.
15 Squat Jumps- This is a variation of the squat, but in this exercise, you jump up from the squat position.
After you’ve finished, you feel empowered, energized and ready to take on anything! Now go enjoy that vacation food!
