Training away from home

Try to organise your day so you get up 30 minutes earlier and get a quick workout in.

Business trips are often filled with client lunches, rich dinners and late night drinks. If you know this is going to be the case, don’t just accept it and think oh well I’ll write off these 3 days and start next week, do something about it.

Try to organise your day so you get up 30 minutes earlier and get a quick workout in.  Even if there isn’t a gym in your hotel, you can use your hotel room – it all counts and it also means you can enjoy that glass of wine or side of fries later.

My top tips are to stay hydrated by drinking lots of water, keep some healthy snacks with you to have on the go like a handful of nuts or a piece of fruit and remember to try and get a good night sleep.

Returning from a 3 day business trip knowing you have one training session in the bank is better than nothing at all and it won’t leave you struggling with the motivation to start again.

Here are a couple of hotel gym workouts to help you along the way:

Dumbbells

Front squats
Single arm rows
Unsupported shoulder press
Push up close grip & wide grip
Hammer curl, front press, tricep press

Complete 10 reps of each for 3 rounds. 

HIIT

Bike
Burpees
Kettlebell swings
Jumping lunges
Swiss ball rollouts
Controlled bicycles

Complete 30 seconds on then rest for 15 seconds.  Repeat for 5-6 rounds.
