Traveling Workout Tips

Let’s get to the reality of the situation, the heart of the matter, working out, wether in your home town or while on the road, starts with discipline.  It’s easy to come home from work and just plop on the couch and not get up for the rest of the night.  The same can be said for jumping onto a hotel room bed.  In this article, I will go over my favorite traveling workout tips and the words I’ve tried to live by for the past 20 or so years.

Hotel Workouts

Let’s start with basics, you don’t even need a gym, although some hotels will have one.  You can do tons of exercises right in your room.  Let’s start by making it easy.  Try to workout for at least 15 minutes, yes just 15 minutes.  It’s way better than nothing.  In fact, a max set of pushups, I’m talking about giving 100% effort, usually gets people more sore than a bunch of sets at the gym with weights.

These workouts can be done anywhere!  It doesn’t matter if you are camping or in the back of a van like my buddy, Brandon from My Body Sings Electric, try to find a way to motivate yourself and start doing some of these exercises.
