Friday workout …on holiday/vacation, no gym no worries

Took a picture next to the big chocolate bar!

Went to the gym again today. 35 minute workout. I only did a 10 minute steady state run for warm up. I ended up getting 20,567 steps in at the park yesterday. We are going back again today so was not worried about cardio today.

Ok so you don’t have to have a gym to stay on track. Hah on track! We have been to riding so many roller coasters and some of them have had crazy tracks. But I digress.

In your hotel room all you need is space and time. Try these exercises while on vacation or just a business trip away from home.

No gym needed:

  • Crunches do as many as you can for 1 minute reps- 1 min, 1 min, 1 min
  • Scissors ankle touches do as many as you can for 1 minute reps- 1 min, 1 min, 1 min
  • planks do as many as you can for 1 minute reps- 1 min, 1 min, 1 min
  • plank to palms (from plank one hand at a time go to push up position and back down again) do as many as you can for 1 minute reps- 1 min, 1 min, 1 min
  • Air Squats reps- 30, 30, 30
  • side lunges reps- 30, 30, 30
  • chair dips do as many as you can for 1 minute reps- 1 min, 1 min, 1 min

This is just a small amount of the things you can do. Take a 15 min rest between each and do at least 3 rounds of each.

My workout today was this:

  • 10 min warm run
  • Tripod tricep rows 30 lbs reps- 15, 13, 12
  • Hip thrusts or hip bridges 35 lbs reps- 15, 15, 15
  • bicycle crunches with ankle touches reps- 20, 20, 20
  • pike crunches are reps- 12, 12, 12

I left before everyone in my family was awake so I should get back and go get breakfast with them. Stay hydrated and have a great weekend! We are off to ride more roller coasters and see the animals in the zoo today. Thanks for reading.

Thursday Workout…while on vacation, coming back from sickness

28 minute workout…Well it’s been two weeks. I am still congested and coughing but I could not wait any longer to get into the gym. We are at the Hershey Resort. I almost canceled due to us all being sick. However we all seemed to take a turn for the better. So we decided to go.

So today I decided go work out but to listen to my body. I am still getting rid of the junk in my head. I have finished the antibiotics and other than the congestion feel over all ok.

I started out with a steady state run then did a HIIT weight lifting routine. I did a warm up walk 2 minutes, then ran out 10 minutes steady state till my congestion caught up to me, then cool down for 1 minute. Then followed up with a 15 minute weight lifting routine. Enough gabbing here is the workout.

Workout:

  • 13 minute run, 2 min warm up, 10 min run, 1 min cool down.

Weight lifting: do each exercise I time through. Rest 45 seconds the repeat for a total of 3 times.

  • Press and reverse lunge 2x 20 lb dumbbells held above head. Do this for 1 minute.
  • Rest 15 seconds
  • Bent over standing row 2x 20 lb dumbbells. Do exercises for 1 minute.
  • Rest 15 seconds
  • Lunge with bicep curls 2x 15 lb dumbbells. Do for 1 minute.
  • Side lunge with front lift 1x 10lb dumbbell. Hold one dumbbell with both hands and lunge lift dumbbell as you lunge. Do exercise for 1 minute.
  • Rest for 45 seconds and

So over all today’s workout was great. I loved being back in the gym. I listened to my body and the congestion. My muscles performed as I hoped. Breakfast was great and super healthy. I will write more about food later.

Don’t think you have to stop your workout routine just cause you are on vacation or holiday. Most places have a fantastic gym available. But even if they don’t you can do calisthenics in your hotel and room and core workouts. I will write about a core workout I am going to do in room soon.

Now we are going to go to the amusement park and walk for miles and just enjoy each other’s company. The kids are ready and raring to go ride some rides. I hope you have a great day! Thanks for reading.
