Hotel Room Body Weight Workouts
Right this instant, I’m sitting in a small conference room in the Hard Rock Hotel in Orlando, Florida.
I’m at a meeting with some other fitness pros from around the US and Canada. Crazy Canadians.
We’re learning and having a good time hanging out with one another, but my workouts always suffer when I’m away from home.
My diet really suffers, even though I’m around a small group of fitness pros. It’s not bad, just not as tight as it is when I’m home.
Another reason my workouts suffer is because I refuse to pay to use the gyms in hotels. Most are useless and junky, even if it’s a really nice hotel.
Plus it’s just one of those things I don’t like doing. Weird? Maybe, but it’s turned into one of those things I don’t do on principle. Hotels nickel and dime you to death anymore and it’s annoying.
Do I sound bitter?
Anyway, back to my real reason for talking to you.
Hotel room workouts.
Since I don’t like using the hotel gyms, I do my workouts in the room. Body-weight workouts, obviously since carrying weights with me would probably put me over the weight limit on the flight, plus make me unpopular when the overhead compartment would come tumbling down.
I wasn’t feeling very creative, so I just pulled up my YouTube page and wrote a couple of those body-weight workouts, plus one of the fast abs workouts down and did them each a few times.
Total workout time each day was anywhere from 10-20 minutes, depending on the day and how I was feeling. I also did some stretching afterward because my hips and shoulders are so tight from sitting too much.
The body-weight workout and abs workout are below:
I had to substitute in Mountain Climbers for the Jack Knife in the first video, since I don’t have a stability ball with me here in the hotel.
