Working out while traveling isn’t just tough, sometimes it just sucks. Well, get inspired by this hotel-gym workout from HUMANFITPROJECT contributor Tim McComsey.
Complete the circuit for 3-5 rounds. Take 30-60 seconds rest in between rounds.
Exercise 1: Dumbbell Row to Shoulder Press
With two dumbbells at your side, slightly bend forward at the hips. Pull the dumbbells up while squeezing your shoulder blades together. Lift the dumbbells up to your shoulders and press overhead.
Exercise 2: Dumbbell Squat to Lateral Raise
While holding two dumbbells at your side with your feet slightly wider than shoulders-width, sit back into a squat position. When your quads/thighs are nearly parallel with the ground, drive upwards while raising the dumbbells to your sides.
Exercise 3: Rear Delt Row to Deadlift
Hold two dumbbells at your side with your palms facing inward. Bent forward at the hips, raise your elbows up, then return to the start position while keeping your back straight and head forward. After completion of the delt row, stand up straight (deadlift) then return back to the row position.
Exercise 4: Push Ups
Place your hands at shoulder width with your back straight and core braced. Lower yourself slowly and explode upwards.
Exercise 5: Mountain Climbers
While in the push up position with your core braced, alternate bringing each knee towards your chest as rapidly as possible.
