STAY FIT WITH ME
One of the hardest things to do when you are traveling is make time to stay fit. Sure hotels have gyms and almost every city has a few too, but sometimes finding the time can be difficult. When I left for my roadtrip five months ago I wasn’t sure what my schedule would be like so I packed my resistance bands. They took up little space and allowed me an alternative to hitting the gym and pavement. If you’re like me and cannot always find time for the gym, try my quick hotel exercises that burn calories while toning simultaneously. They are easy to use anywhere.
Stand with your right leg in front and left leg behind. Place the resistance band under your left arch and squat to a 90 degree angel. Holding one end of the resistance band in each hand pulling to shoulder level. Hold position for 3 seconds then repeat 12 reps of 3 sets. Switch legs at completion.
Start with your feet shoulders width apart. Place the middle of the resistance band under both of your arches. Push back to a 90 degree angle positioning your knees directly over your toes. Push arms directly overhead toward the ceiling keeping both arms positioned nearest your ears. Come back to starting position and repeat 12 reps of 3 sets.
Start with your feet shoulders width apart. Place the middle of the resistance band under both of your arches. Pull right foot to the center of your inner thigh reaching resistance bands overhead. Hold for 3 seconds then bring right leg back to squat position arms following to both sides. Repeat 12 reps of 3 sets alternating legs.
Sit on a mat with both legs directly in front of you. Place resistance band around arches of both feet. Raise legs and arms, hold for 3 seconds and release to starting position. Complete 12 reps of 3 sets.
