3 Travel Workouts for Spring Break

It’s Spring Break here in Chanhassen so I thought I’d share three workouts that travel well…

Workout 1:  Push-up / Squat Ladder

Note: Push-up regressions could include high planks or plank shoulder taps.  Squat alternatives could include step-ups, glute bridges, or even a switch to hip hinges.

There are two ways to approach this ladder workout:

Option 1:

5 push-ups

5 squats

10 push-ups

10 squats

15 push-ups

15 squats

…and so on until you can’t complete the next increment of 5 push-ups.  BTW, you could choose a different number of reps based on your fitness level.

Then, if you have time and you’re not totally fried, go back down the ladder.

Option 2:

1 push-up.  1 squat.

2 push-ups.  2 squats.

3 push-up.  3 squats.

…and so on until you can’t complete the next increment of push-ups.

Workout 2:  10-exercise Movement Ladder

Perform exercise 1 for 30 seconds.  Then rest for 30 seconds.

Perform exercise 1 for 30 seconds, followed by exercise 2 for 30 seconds, and then rest for 30 seconds.

Add an exercise each round until the last round is all 10 exercises.

NOTE:  You can use a rep count (e.g., 15) instead of time.  

Here’s an example workout that you can do with resistance bands (perfect for travel).

Exercise 1:  Bent-over Rows

Exercise 2:  High Pulls

Exercise 3:  Romanian Deadlifts (RDLs)

Exercise 4:  Split-Stance Incline Chest Press

Exercise 5:  Pull-aparts

Exercise 6:  Front Squats

Exercise 7:  Overhead Press or Front Raise

Exercise 8:  Overhead Triceps Extensions

Exercise 9:  Hammer Curls

Exercise 10:  Chest Press

Workout 3:  Body-weight Circuit

If you give any of these a try please report back and let me know what you think.
