workout wednesday :: travel edition

Anytime I go on vacation or travel, I like to have a few workouts in my back pocket that I don't need a gym for. You never know what the hotel gym is going to look like and sometimes the weather can be unpredictable for a run outside in a new city, even if that is my favorite way to explore. Although, I am horrible with directions, meh. Since I will be outside of Chicago this weekend for a wedding, I am trying to make sure I still get in a few good workouts, so I can enjoy some yummy treats...deep dish pizza?! Maybe Girl & The Goat, pretty nice little Saturday....I don't know if we'll have enough time?! (name that movie) 

I am getting off track. Anyway, this workout is perfect for traveling because it's quick, effective, and is one you can totally do in your hotel room. Maybe just lay a towel down first black lights are not a hotel's best friend.



Δ AMRAP: As Many Rounds As Possible in 20 mins. 
Δ Try not to give yourself too much rest time in between each set. 
Δ Here is an example of a Single Leg Squat or try the Pistol Squat
Δ Here is an article on why you should work on one legged squats. 


Cheers to being active!

This is great! I always love finding new workouts.
Its really easy to think that you have to exert yourself insane amounts to see results. Sometimes its as simple as JUST DOING IT! I'm definitely going to try this tonight !

This is perfect! I always try to work out on vacation, but I'm not always successful. =/ It's a good idea to have a plan for the room!

Dude, I am such a squats beginner. If I lived anywhere near you, I'd hire you to train me. I seriously need to work on my balance.

I always hate how a vacation gets me out if my work out routine. it's like the only downside to vacations. I'll have to bring this for my next trip. although my pushups are off my knees, I'd love to be able to do ten full blown ones.
