We understand that staying fit and getting your workout in is still a top priority for you when on vacation. And there are also benefits of constant workouts that can’t be overlooked. If you are caught up in a hotel that lacks a fitness room or you aren’t pleased with what’s available, then read on. The following are workouts that don’t require equipment and are space friendly.

Arm exercises which also strengthen the shoulder and chest

For an amazing range of workouts for your arms, try out the following workouts:

  • Plank ups (10)
  • Lateral plank walk (10)
  • Burpees and push-ups (10)
  • Mountain climber turns (10)
  • Diamond push-ups (10)
  • Planks and shoulder taps (10)

Start your day with a full-body workout:

These workouts help maintain a balanced fitness level. You shouldn’t really be aiming to work any part of your body in particular, but for the general wellbeing of the body to prepare you for the day. The following are workouts that can help achieve this:

  • Squat jumps
  • Planks with shoulder taps
  • Burpees with push-up
  • Jumping lunges

These workouts are meant to stretch out every muscle in the body. For adequate and effective changes, they should be completed within a period of 10 minutes. Check out Valkyrie experts to learn more.

While you are at it, feel free to vary the intensity of your workout. This can range from beginner to advanced levels. The following are distinctive characteristics of each intensity:

  • Beginner: 30 seconds of workout; 30 seconds of rest
  • Intermediate: 40 seconds of workout; 20 seconds of rest
  • Advanced: 50 seconds of workout; 10 seconds of rest.

If you usually exercise at a beginner intensity level, why not take up the challenge of moving up to an intermediate intensity?

If there is time available, try this workout that shouldn’t last more than 20 minutes:

During your vacation, try out the following cardio workouts:
