We don’t want you to let your fab abs go to flab just because you’re on the road for a few days. Here’s some ideas we have for making sure you get your move on while you’re gone.
We’re keeping it to bodyweight exercises so you won’t have to pack anything extra!
- Plank sit-throughs — Start in a “bulldog” pose with your shoulders over your hands and your hips over your knees, which are kept an inch off the ground. Jump your feet back to put yourself into plank position, then back. Then, kick one leg under and through while lifting your opposite hand off the ground until you could “sit” on the ground with one straight leg. Bring your leg back into the original position and repeat with the other leg.
Move rapidly and try to get at least 10 reps in.
- Curtsy lunge — Stand with your feet under your hips, then step one leg back and cross over in the other direction, then bend both legs until your front thigh is parallel to the ground, keeping your core engaged and your chest lifted. Push yourself up mostly from your front leg and bring your rear leg back under your hip, before repeating on the other side.
Do at least 10 reps.
- Shadow boxing — It is what it sounds like: Stand with your knees slightly bent and resting on the balls of your feet and begin making sharp yet controlled punching motions into the air, practicing jabs, uppercuts and crosscuts to get rid of all the stress that traveling involves!
