Bodyweight exercises that will kick your butt during holiday travel

I don’t know about you, but for me, the holidays require lots of travel and bring uncertainty to my workout routine. While I’m traveling, I try to give myself the grace to skip a workout here and there in the name of making memories with my loved ones. That said, I definitely don’t fall ALL the way off the wagon :)

Here are my go-to KB Fitt exercises when I’m in a pinch, have zero gym equipment and minimal time to break a sweat:

  • Squat jumps

  • Burpees

  • Push-ups

  • Walking lunges

  • Shoulder taps

  • Crunches

  • Decline push-up (on a bench or couch)

  • Tricep dips (on a bench or couch)

  • Hip bridges

  • Mountain climbers

  • Downdog push-ups

  • Wall sits

  • Bicycle crunches

  • Speed skaters

  • High knees

  • Wide arm push-ups

  • Bear crawls

  • Planks/Side planks(forearm and on hands)

  • Flutter kicks

  • Swimmers

  • Butterfly crunches

  • Reverse lunge knee ups

To create a workout of your own, pick seven exercises (a good mix of upper body, lower body, HIIT, and core.) Repeat each exercise 10-12 times, and repeat the circuit 3-5 times -- you’ll definitely FEEL. THE. BURN!

An example of a bodyweight workout is listed below (you can also find the video on my Instagram): Squat jumps x 12

  • Downdog push-ups x 12

  • Reverse lung knee ups x 12

  • Mountain climbers x 24 (12 each side)

  • Shoulder taps x 24 (12 each side)

  • Russian twists x 24 (12 each side)

  • Donkey kicks to fire hydrants x 24 (12 each side)
