Hotel Room Workout
Four moves, no equipment and using minimal space, stay in shape this holiday with this hotel room workout.
Do these moves one after another without rest, pause for 60 seconds, then repeat the circuit twice more. Aim for 15 reps of each move per circuit.
1/ Single-leg squat, floor reach and press
Stand with feet hip-width apart; arms at your sides. Bend your left knee. Squat, then reach your left hand to the floor outside your right toes (A). Stand as you lift your left hand, lower your right arm and raise your left thigh to hip level (B). Repeat on the other side. That’s one rep.
2/ Push-up crawl
Get into push-up position with your hands wider than shoulder-width apart (A). Lower your chest asclose to the floor as you can. Holding that position, lift your right knee to the outside of your right elbow (B). Reverse the movement to return to start, then repeat on the other side. That’s one rep.
3/ Front lunge floor reach and reverse twist
Stand with feet hip-width apart. Lunge forward with your left leg. Try to touch the floor on either side of your left foot (A). Push off your foot and step forward with your right foot, swinging your left leg behind you. As you sink back into a lunge, rotate your torso to the right (B).
4/ Grand plié squat, reach and jump
Stand with your legs wide apart and toes turned out. Squat until your thighs are parallel to the floor and you’re low enough to touch it with your fingertips (A). Immediately jump up as high as you can, keeping your legs wide and extending your arms straight overhead (B). That’s one rep.
