Great travel workout in under 30 minutes!

Hey everyone,

Tannys was recently travelling for work.  As she did not have a lot of time to complete a workout, she put together a density workout, comprised of just four sets (eight exercises in total), that she completed in her hotel room.

Each set of two exercises is performed for 5 minutes, alternating between the two exercises as needed. Take 2 minutes of rest between each set.  The entire workout can be completed in less than 30 minutes!

The only equipment needed is a chair or surface that you can rest your shoulders on for hip thrusts and a sturdy desk or table that you can suspend from underneath for reverse pushups. 

Here is what she did:
1. Jumping lunges + Pushups

2. Shoulder-elevated hip thrusts + Sleeping crabs

Completed with shoulders elevated on a couch or bed

3. Speed squats + Reverse pushups

4. Bulgarian split squats + Mountain climbers

Although the exercises are all body weight, you can really break a sweat by pushing the pace with the jumping exercises.  Give it a try next time you are travelling, or just need a quick workout at home!
