I get to travel quite a bit and recently learned two very valuable lessons.
The first thing I learned was that there are a lot of refugees from Somalia in Toronto. My cab driver to the hotel was from Somalia and when asked about his homeland he didn’t seem too eager to talk about it.
I took the hint.
The next thing I learned is that when doing your bodyweight workout in your hotel room in the morning you should catch your breath before answering the door to tell housekeeping to go away.
I was near the end of my workout when I got the knock and ran to answer the door to tell her to go away…and I was panting.
She looked at me kind of funny and said she’d come back later.
So that’s where this newsletter has taken me. Hotel room workouts.
My workout only took me about 15 minutes to complete, included nothing but bodyweight exercises, and as the housekeeper found out, left me breathless. 성남룸싸롱
So here’s what I did, and you should try too the next time you find yourself in a hotel but not wanting to head down to the workout facility.
I did a quick warm-up consisting of push-ups and squats. I did 3 sets of 10 each with little to no rest between sets.
I then did 4 sets of the following supersets, only resting 20-30 seconds after the second exercise before returning to the first:
1A) Push-up w/Hand Raise – 12 per hand
1B) 1-Leg Hip Extension – 15 reps per leg
2A) Pike Push-up – 15 reps
2B) Reverse Lunge – 15 reps per leg
3A) “T” Push-up – 16 reps
3B) Overhead Squats – 20 reps
After those exercises, I had a pretty good sweat worked up.
You could even give that workout a try this weekend. Do it first thing in the morning before anything else gets in the way and pushes the workout to the back burner.
