In this article I’ll share with you a hotel workout routine that you can do on your next vacation to burn fat and maintain muscle mass. I’ll also share a video of a fitness coach named John Romaniello showing another hotel workout that he recently did.
Being on vacation does not mean that you need to get out of shape. While being far from the gym or your home fitness equipment may seem like the perfect excuse to “slack off”, there really is no reason why you can’t exercise in your hotel room.
There are plenty of bodyweight exercises that you can do in practically any hotel room to train your body from head to toe. You don’t need any equipment whatsoever.
Here is a bodyweight workout circuit that you can do during your next vacation:
This is a great bodyweight cardio exercise that will get you warmed up and in the workout spirit in less than a minute.
Stand with your feet apart. Place your hands on your head. Go into a squat. During your rise to the starting position, jump high. Land and go straight into another squat. Do this 10 times.
To do the split squat is simple: Take a step forward with your right leg. Place your hands at your hips for balance. Bend your right knee while lifting your left heel from the floor. Keep your back straight as you lower your body down straight. Don’t let your left knee touch the floor. Rise back to the starting position.
Complete 10 reps with each leg. This is a great exercise to tone your butt and burn a lot of calories.
Decline/Incline Push Ups
Use your hotel room bed to do either decline or incline push ups. Incline push-ups is the easier exercise so do that if you feel tired.
To do an incline push-up, place your palms on the bed, keep your feet on the floor and do a push-up. For a decline push-up reverse the position of your hands and feet.
This is a great lower back exercise. To do the superman exercise, lie down on your belly while keeping your legs straight and close together and your arms outstretched over your head.
Lift both legs and both arms while keeping your balance on the floor on your hips and torso. Hold this position for 7 – 10 seconds and return to the starting position.
You can also do alternating superman exercises by lifting your left hand and right leg and then your right hand and left leg.
This is one of the best core exercise that should be part of any hotel workout. I’ll teach you how to do the easier version of the hand walkout exercise and you can watch the video at the end of this article to view the harder version.
Get down on all fours with your hands and knees about shoulder width apart. Hold your belly in tight. Start walking with your hands forward. Keep your knees on the same position on the floor and slowly lower your hips to the floor.
Stop “walking” forward when your abs are just about to touch the floor. Hold this position for a second. Start walking backward with your hands until you’re at the starting position.
Hotel Room Workout Conclusion
Combine these exercises into a complete workout. I believe that you can do all of these exercise one after another without rest in between. Then, rest between each circuit. Do a number of them until you feel that you’ve gotten a complete fat burning workout. The number of circuits depends on your current fitness levels.
Here is a video of another hotel workout routine presented by John Romaniello, creator of the Final Phase Fat Loss program. John has an acidic sense of humor, so be warned. However, he does give a number of other exercises that you can do in your hotel room:
