This season more than ever it’s likely you’re going to be traveling somewhere. If sitting long hours on planes, trains, and automobiles gets your back cranky or the rest of you in need of some focused movement I’ve got two solutions.
This is part of a series of blogs providing you with workout solutions. You’ll find both of these tied to a video you can watch too.
If you’re connected to our Facebook community, today I’m in a hotel room in Orlando where I’m presenting for the International Council on Active Aging and the Athletic Business Conference in a whirlwind couple of days. I’m going to have to fit in a very early morning workout to wake up before my presentations first thing both Thursday and Friday. I’m going to do them live. Even if you miss the workouts… you’ll find the videos there for you.
First things first! Take care of your back if you’re sitting or even standing long periods of time! If the extension exercises seem like too much, modify with a pillow under your hips, or leave these out and focus on the mobility and stretching exercises instead. To watch this video click here.
If you can’t find time to fit in that workout at the gym and you’ve got some weights to use, here’s a quick metabolism boost. Major muscles are the focus. There’s also core engagement in each move. You’ll get done what’s most important, stay consistent, and get on with your day.
Warning: this one is a bit advanced. If you’ve got good core strength and have been exercising consistently, try it.
I happen to show use of a Kettle Bell. You don’t need one. A dumbbell will do just fine.
Don’t forget to join the Facebook community and me in a live workout fit for a hotel room or the guest bedroom if you’re away from home this holiday season!
