Vacation workout...made simple

Hi All,

I know the topic might raise some eyebrows...working out while I am on vacation..hell NO! but I say WHY NOT!...we eat more...drink more and are less active so why not deserve those things while burning out some calories. I know that I am much more relaxed while I am on vacation...I take my time in doing things cause I am always on the clock otherwise....so its a good change for me but I don't feel good after 1 or 2 days if I don't burn some of those calories that I am eating...so for me its a necessity to workout a little on those relaxed days. I bet you will also feel much better if you do the same...

I am in Maui (Hawaii) right now and I will outline a workout routine that I did this morning which is simple to use and you can do it anywhere and will burn max. calories......

One thing I will suggest is that get it done early (first thing whenever you get up - get it out of the way). It's so much easy cause then you can carry on with your day.

Here is the workout....

1. Start with walking easy (let those muscles get ready) 2-3 minutes
2. Jog at a very mild pace for 5-10 minutes
3. Stop and stretch your hamstrings, Lower back, quads etc
4. Jump rope (of course without a rope) for 30 sec.
5. Continue jogging for another 5 min.
6. Spot a raise platform and do some push-ups and turn around and do some dips (triceps)
7. Do some step-up at the same raise platform (I just picked a step and did all these things on step)
8. Continue jogging and for another 5 minutes...(turn around otherwise you will go too far)
9. Stop and do another set of jump rope and this time go for 150 jumps
10. Stretch and do some vacuum (suck all the air into your stomach and hold as long as you can. Very good yoga and ab exercise..repeat 2 -3 times)
11. Continue walking fast to your destination....

That's it ...this 30 minute workout will burn anywhere 200-300 calories.....I did a little to running on the rocks at the beach so I was sweating a little hard at the end...

Try it next time when you are traveling...you will love it...

KEEP WORKING
