Workout, Without Venturing Out

Every January 1st, we start off the year with a fresh perspective on how we are going to improve our eating habits, workout more frequently and become an overall healthier individual. However, sometimes life (cold weather, travel, date night, etc.) gets in the way of our optimistic New Year's resolutions. But what if getting a workout in didn't require you to leave the comfort of your own home or purchase expensive equipment? Below is a workout routine that I bring with me when I'm traveling. Even if there's no hotel gym, I am able to complete the workout in my room, leaving me feeling accomplished and a little bit stronger.

  • 100 jumping jacks
  • 50 crunches
  • 20 tricep dips (if a bench is not accessible, use the side of a desk, chair or bed)
  • 20 lunges (each leg)
  • 60 Russian twists with dumbbell (optional)
  • 20 calf raises
  • 15 kneeling push-ups
  • 30 second plank
