Only one more day left on our honeymoon, which means that Brian and I come home tomorrow! I cant’ wait to get back and give you all a full recap of the wedding AND honeymoon, but until then Jen from Peanut Butter Runner is going to help tide you over 🙂 I love reading Jen’s blog for her tasty recipes and awesome workout routines. You all are lucky, because Jen is sharing one of her amazing workouts with all of you today! Let me know if you give it a shot!
Hi Treble in the Kitchen readers! I’m Jen from Peanut Butter Runner and I’m here with you today while Tara enjoys her Italian honeymoon. (I’m a little jealous!)
I am a yoga teacher, personal trainer, CrossFit coach, group exercise instructor and I manage a fitness club and CrossFit box as my full-time job. Needless to say my days are full of planning workouts for my clients and classes.
Tara asked if I would share some travel workouts that can be done with limited space and no equipment so I’ve put together two workouts for you. One is a 10-1 ladder where the reps decrease each round until you work down to one. The other is a tabata-style workout where you work at maximum effort for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 for 8 rounds of each exercise. I love both of these workout styles because they keep you constantly moving so you tackle cardio and strength at the same time.
I am a big fan of bodyweight exercises and commonly program them in my own workouts and for my clients. Moving your own bodyweight is one of the fastest ways to increase core strength and overall strength. Bodyweight training also helps in developing flexibility, power and increased body control and awareness.
The biggest benefit of bodyweight workouts is that they can be done anywhere. I don’t know about y’all but I love to fit in exercise when I’m traveling but I don’t want to spend a long time doing it. These workouts are perfect for giving you a quick, total body, high intensity exercise solution no matter where you may be. Enjoy!
What are your favorite bodyweight exercises?
