3 Tips for Vacation Workouts

Getting ready for a vacation or little get away? There is always a way to fit your workout in during a vacation! Here are 3 of my tips for you when going to workout on a vacation.

TIP #1

My biggest thing to start off with would be to find out if your vacation spot has a gym or any training equipment! Look it up on their website or call in and see if they have anything. I like to gather all that information before I leave so I know if I need to pack anything extra. When you can have something such as your workout planned out in advance then you will have a better chance of actually doing it.

TIP #2

This one may be super simple but overlooked as well. This tip is to disinfect any weights you use before & after you use them. Think about it, lets say you go to a resort and want to use their fitness facility. Think about how many people use these weights and never think about cleaning any of it. It could be people from all over the world depending on where you go. I like to put this as a tip for you because I believe it is very important to pay attention to your health and wellness. I count this as also keeping track of your immune system and keeping yourself as healthy as possible. The healthier you are, the better you feel and more time you can spend on a fun vacation without a sore throat and being sick.

TIP #3

Don’t be afraid to bang out a 15 minute workout at the hotel room with just bodyweight. It may seem like you won’t have a good workout because you have no free weights. There is a lot of different things you can do in a hotel room to get your workout in. Some easy bodyweight exercises can be :

  • Push ups
  • Air squats
  • Crunches and planks
  • Glute ham raises
  • Box jumps
  • Squat jumps
  • Wall sits
  • Calf raises
  • Bench dips

Here is my workout I did while I was at my resort:

Warm up – hiked for about an hour which was more of a cardio session.

SUPERSET- warm up of 25 reps each then 4×10 each 
-Dumbbell twist curls
-Rope cable extensions

-Incline dumbbell curl –

2 sets of 10 each arm then 1 giant set. do 3-4 drop sets back to back. example 35s, 25s, 15s without a break.

SUPERSET- 4×10 each
-Bent over dumbbell iso curls
-Bent over dumbbell tricep kickbacks
