When traveling, you want to embrace everything around you - new places, new customs, new people, new smells, but also new foods and delicious treats.
Nobody wants to keep counting calories when staying in a hotel and have to restrain from trying local food. It is why many people often come back from a trip gaining four or five pounds.
But, luckily, there are some tips on how to stay fit while traveling.
Get ready and take notes for your next trip!
#1 - Do a Morning HIIT Workout
HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts are designed to get you the most out of your workout in the shortest time.
It will include quick, but effective exercises, such as burpees, push-ups, high knees, crunches, scissor leg lifts, etc.
In only ten minutes, you can complete one HIIT workout before breakfast.
An easy routine would be max burpees in 1 minute, rest 15 seconds, max push-ups in 1 minute, rest 15 seconds, and keep repeating with the other exercises.
#2 - Do Water Sports
If you are on a holiday that includes the beach, don't just indulge in sweet cocktails and tanning. Take a morning swim or jog on the beach.
Water and sand will provide resistance, so you'll get a more intense workout you can complete in a shorter time.
For those without warm water access, try other body weight exercises....planks are a personal favorite!
#3 - Plan & Balance Your Meals
Research the national cuisine of the place you are visiting. Find what some good restaurants are and check their menus online.
That way you can choose the food you want to try, so you can plan the rest of the meals to stay within your recommended daily calorie intake.
You don't have to give up on trying local specialties. But, stay away from fast food for on-the-go meals.
Relax and enjoy your vacation. Do short workouts and plan your meals and exercises before you get on the plane. Even if you skip a workout one day, it won't make you lose all of your gains. Instead, make the most out of your vacation. But, make sure it is an active.
