Another Full Body Hotel Workout

Posted: September 15, 2011 in travel, workouts

Working out when traveling is hard.  It’s hard to find motivation, it’s hard to work with different equipment….well… GET OVER IT!  Nobody said being fit and healthy was easy! 🙂

I’ve written several posts on eating and staying fit while traveling.  Check out this one on healthy travel food.

This week I traveled with instant oatmeal, Mila, Goji berries, apples, a Go Picnic Gluten Free snack box, tuna, Think Thin protein bars, and chocolate soy milk.  Thank goodness I packed so much.  My company is AMAZING and feeds us well and frequent, however gluten free and clean eating choices are slim.  I’m happier with the healthy foods I usually eat.

I did enjoy an ice cream sundae tonight.  Oh man it was good!  Vanilla with hot fudge, oreos, and sprinkles.  See ya cake, I want a sundae on my birthday!

Between training and our team dinner tonight I got in a full body workout and a 1 mile jog.  Here’s what it looked like:
SuperSet 1:

  • Leg extension 2×15
  • Heavy DB squat – 50lbs – 2×10
  • Stationary jump lunge 2×10 each leg
  • Straight arm pulldown on cable machine (for lats) – 2×18
SuperSet 2:
  • Standing heavy DB press 2×12
  • Split lunge with DB isometric hold overhead 2×12 each leg
  • Bicep cable straight bar curl 2×8
  • Burpees 2×8
SuperSet 3:
  • Plank hold with DB tricep extension 2×10 each arm
  • DB squat swing 2×10 each side
  • V-ups 2×15
1 mile run at 9min pace to burn a few extra calories.  It was hard on my tired legs!
A few other coworkers of mine hit the gym and one girl ran sprints up the parking garage which I thought was a good idea.  When traveling, you’ve got to be creative.

How do you stay fit when you travel?

Love and jet lag,

  1. That sundae just made my mouth water and now I want one and it's not even 11!

  2. Great Superset workout! I'm definitely going to try this one. Thanks! 😀

  3. Good luck with the workout! If you need any clarification let me know! sometimes I write workouts but don't explain all the moves or have a partner to take pics!

  4. Thank you so much for those awesome arm workouts! The cover picture of her is kind of funky. It's a great picture but doesn't really look like her!
