10 Minute Bodyweight AND 4 Minute Abs Workout Done In My Hotel Room

As I write this, I’m sitting at a desk in my hotel room overlooking downtown Toronto.

I’m up here for a couple days for a meeting with some of the best fitness and nutrition experts in the world and we’re all here to learn and teach.  It’s a pretty intense couple of days, but it’s also really fun.

Even though I love coming to these meetings, I hate leaving my wife and daughter at home.  I don’t know how people do it on a regular basis.

It nearly broke me to drive away and hear Maren say “Bye daddy, I love you.”

I suppose you learn to cope.

On a positive note I was able to get to Toronto 3 hours earlier than I was supposed to because I was allowed to get put on an earlier connecting flight!

That about made my day.  It’s very rare anymore that you don’t have issues with flights and airports and whenever anything good happens, it makes for a very good day.

When I got to my hotel I had a bunch of nervous energy to burn off.

Between leaving Andrea and Maren and traveling I had a bunch of anxiety to burn off.

I’m not an easy going traveler.  I’m a ball of nerves.  I blame my mother for this trait, and I don’t think I’ll get any disagreements from my siblings.

Anyway, when I got checked into my room I was starving because there was no way I was going to eat any airport food and I didn’t want to eat another protein bar.

But before I went to eat, I had to burn off this nervous energy so I did a 10 minute workout, followed by a 4 minute abs workout.

Here’s what I did,

10 Minute Workout:

Push-up and Squat Ladder

This is really fun.  The ladder goes up to 10 and you can choose any kind of push-ups you want, but beware that it gets pretty tough.

All you do is do 1 pushup, then stand up and do 1 squat, then get back down on the floor and do 2 push-ups, followed by 2 squats, etc. until you get to 10 push-ups and 10 squats.

Then, without stopping, you go back down to 1 of each.

Make sense?  If you do the math in your head, that turns out to be A LOT of push-ups and bodyweight squats, but it feels so good to get that workout done in around 10 minutes.

My 4 minute abs workout went like this:

Mountain Climbers for 20 seconds

Rest 10 seconds

Burpees for 20 seconds

Rest 10 seconds and repeat until 4 minutes is up.

My abs were screaming and I was breathing very hard.

I actually had to wait about 20 minutes before I headed down for dinner because I didn’t want to look like a weirdo sitting in the restaurant sweating and panting…I think I would’ve been thrown out in a matter of seconds.

So the next time you find yourself in a hotel room give that workout a try.

Actually you don’t have to be in a hotel room, you can be anywhere.  That’s the great thing about that workout.

It’s a bodyweight workout that takes around 15 minutes and it works your entire body.  Do it first thing in the morning, during lunch, whenever.

Just give it a try!

Have a great day!

Ed aka “The Fit Dad”

P.S. – I’m going to be learning a ton of new stuff at this mastermind meeting and I’m sure I’ll have some great new programs coming out.  Between fitness and nutrition gurus Craig Ballantyne, Brad Pilon, Vince Delmonte, Isabelle De Los Rios, etc. there’s going to be a lot of good stuff coming out.

P.P.S. – I think I told you I am in the midst of revamping my 10 Minute Workout bonus to make it much more “metabolic”, which basically means it’ll be turned into a more intense fat burning workout bonus.  So be on the lookout for that.

P.P.P.S. – All my past customers will be getting that new revamped 10 minute workout bonus because that’s one of my promises…if I ever update anything or add new bonuses, my past customers get it first.  So if you’re a customer, be sure to check your inbox in the coming days for the link.  If you’re not a customer grab a copy of my Fat Loss To Go program by going to
