No matter where you go or what you do, vacations are a time for relaxing, indulging and escaping. So it ends up being pretty easy to lose sight of your fitness routines or anything that resembles it, for that matter. But that doesn’t mean all your hard work has to go to waste. Taking steps to stay fit and healthy while you’re gone can fit (see what we did there?) right into your vacay plans.
Walking through a foreign city can not only be better for your health, but you’ll be able to see parts that would flash by you in a car. Just make sure to stick to safer neighborhoods.
Once you’re in your room, you can do even more with less. Exercises like the plank glute kick back don’t need a lot of space to get a lot of results from a few rounds.
And remember, they might be made of fruit, but those coladas and daiquiris can pack a caloric punch!!
PLANK GLUTE KICK BACK STEP BY STEP
For and exercise you can do just about anywhere, try several sets of plants with leg raises.
Step 1: Get your body in a plank position with your weight resting on your forearms and toes.
Step 2: From that position, engage your core raising one foot off the floor.
Step 3: Lower your foot back to the ground and raise the other.
Step 4: Continue to alternate raising your feet for 60-90 seconds to complete 1 set.
