As you read in my previous blog ‘Taking A Vacation", you understand the importance of recognizing what your body needs to feel good. Whether it is taking a break physically AND emotionally, or one of the two, it is important to listen to your body and unwind from time to time.
If you are like me and like to get in a workout while on vacation, or at home, here are 3 circuit workouts you can do. If you have a gym available, add weights to increase intensity! Also, feel free to add anything you would like. Make it fun!
Circuit 1: Repeat all 4 Exercises 10 times!
Circuit 2: Repeat all 7 Exercises 4 times!
If your vacation spot isn’t lucky enough to have The Abs Company equipment to use to target your abs and get a quick functional training circuit in, no fear! Here is a great ab workout that you don’t need any equipment for. If you do have access to equipment (i.e roman chair) or weights, feel free to add in some extra sets and variations!
|Flutter Kicks||20 seconds|
|Six Inches||Hold for 20 seconds|
|Butt Kicks||60 seconds|
|Russian Twists||20 seconds|
|Reverse Crunches||20 reps|
|Mountain Climbers||20 seconds|
Circuit 3: 5 exercises, 5 rotations- Approximately 15-20 Minutes of work.
Take 60 seconds to rest after completing all 5 exercises, and then repeat 5 times!
|Forward Alternating Lunges||10 Reps on Each leg|
|High Knees||30 Seconds|
|Air Squats||15 Reps|
|Mountain Climbers||30 Seconds|
Depending on your goals, you might want to add weight or just stick to bodyweight exercises. Always make sure you are paying attention to form and knowing how the movement is supposed to work to avoid injury.
