One of the most common questions we get from our members is what to do while they are traveling, either on vacation or a busy work travel schedule. We chose a question from Tyler Kimble who asks...
"A busy work schedule leaves me little time for workouts and my nutrtition poor, what tips do you have for keeping a routine while on the road."
When you are faced with limited time and limited equipment one of the single best things you can do to still get a great workout are complexes. A complex is a series of exercises performed with one piece of equipment, with no rest and without putting the equipment down. Assuming you are doing these workouts at a hotel your best choice would be to do a dumbbell complex. The benefit here is that you don't need a heavy pair of dumbbells to get the job done and most hotels will have at least up to 3olbs.
Here's a great complex that hits all of the components of a great workout. In each training session we'd hope hit each of our major movement patterns. Squat, Hinge, Push, Pull, Single Leg and Core.
The complex we chose to demonstrate hits all of these in 3 simple movements. Perform each of these exercises with for anywhere from 6-12 each exercise depending on the dumbbells you have available. If possible time how long it takes you to complete the first round and then set your rest period to match it. Shoot for 4-7 rounds depending on time.
