Move It Monday: Traveling Workout

by tinareale on February 25, 2013

Why, hello! Bet you didn’t expect to see me here this morning as I sail off into the deep blue. Yet, here I am! Don’t worry, I’m enjoying cruise time fully, but I didn’t want to say good-bye completely while away. I have some good stuff prepped for you this week. Plus, I thought while I travel the Caribbean you all could do a little traveling of your own. In a workout, of course!!!

move it monday

In today’s Move It Monday workout, you have a circuit of body weight exercises that you complete while moving across around 20 feet of space.

To get started, find a space where you can move around a bit for your travel workout. A yard, a park, a larger room in your home. Pick a Point A and Point B. I suggest around 20 feet of space between the two, but if you don’t have that sort of room feel free to shorten it. You will just need to either complete more circuits or do moves out and back instead of just one way. We good on set-up now?

Moving on to the workout and moves…

You will complete each of the following 10 exercises in circuit format. You will do Exercise 1 from Point A to Point B, then return with Exercise 2. Continue traveling from Point A to Point B alternating through the ten exercises.

  1. Walking Lunge 
  2. Traveling Push-Ups (moving RIGHT arm out every time)
  3. High Knee Bounds
  4. Crab Walk 
  5. Tube Walking Squats (side walking squats with band – can be done no band just holding squat)
  6. Traveling Push-Ups (moving LEFT arm out every time)
  7. Butt Kicks 
  8. Inchworm 
  9. Leapfrogs 
  10. Alligator Walk

After finishing a full round of all exercises, rest before going through them again. Complete 2-4 rounds.

There you have it! Get some traveling in today. When you work up a sweat you can pretend it’s from sitting on the beach in the hot sunshine, right? Winking smile

Ever done a “traveling” type workout? What would be a drill/exercise you would include in yours?

I hope you’re enjoying the cruise!! I don’t do many traveling workouts, but they’re usually circuits like this when I do!

My step kids love working out with me. I can TOTALLY see them getting excited about this workout due to the animal names! I think we will give it a go this weekend when I see them again. Thanks Tina!

You should! I think kids would love it because of all the movement in it.

Love the traveling workout but I’m having a hard time envisioning warm sunshine and sand while it’s 30 degrees and snowing here. :)
