I make no bones about the fact that I prefer to exercise outside. But I’m in Kansas City for a few days and I’m not comfortable running along the frontage roads near the hotel.
The hotel has a gym but the thought of dragging myself onto a treadmill seems, well dreadful.
So what’s a gal to do?
Body weight circuits in the hotel room, that’s what!
Here’s how my circuit went. For each exercise below I did 4 sets of 20 seconds on/10 seconds. Then I moved to the next exercise until I finished all of the exercises.
- Mountain climbers
- Rear alternating lunges
- Happy feet
- High knees
- Tricep dips
- Jumping jacks
- Stairs ( I ran down the hall to the stairwell)
- Goblet Squats
- Side plank (each side)
The only modification I did was take off my shoes for the explosive moves. I was trying to be courteous to the people on the floor below me!
It got my heart rate up and I got a good sweat in under 25 minutes.
Now go run!
