Brutal Ab Workout for Travellers

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Traveling forces you to be creative. Particularly, as I am traveling through a country like Romania, it would my travel experience would suffer greatly if I was to seek out a gym in every new city I went to. That’s why for this trip (and for all other trips in general), I am solely relying on exercises involving bodyweight and exercises that require minimal equipment.

Over the past few months I have become a big believer that you don’t need fancy and expensive fitness equipment of a gym to get into phenomenal shape. To prove my point, check out the video below where I show how I used a regular hotel towel and pillow to get an ab workout that I am still sore from 2 days later:

Next time you find yourself trapped in a hotel room, go grab a towel and a pillow and get those abs burning.

If you have discovered any other exercises that require minimal equipment and that are great for travellers, please share them in the comments!

    Great exercise ! When I was travelling (backpacking) in Indonesia, most mornings I did bodyweight circuits :
    – Push-ups (many variations, weighted with backpack on the back)
    – Tricep Dips using the two beds
    – Squats (Jump, Bulgarian Split, …)
    – Plank/Moutain Climber
    – Bicep Curls using my backpack

    With imagination you can stay in shape pretty easily while travelling!

      and Pull-Ups wherever I could find a bar!

        Your list sounds cool.

        I have also found it useful to use holidays to focus on just one specific movement. For this holiday I was doing handstand almost daily and that did a lot in me coming closer to my freestanding handstand.
