Working out while traveling – from New York

Hey guys I just arrived in NY a few days ago. I’ll be here for just over a week and am loving it already.

One of the tough things about traveling is staying in shape while you’re on the road. I’ve got no access to a gym and I honestly don’t really want to get to one.

Here I am right in front of the plaza. This was taken on my last trip to NY, haven't brought out the camera yet on this one.

I’m just coming off the tail end of my last 3 week section of a program I put together and my body could use some rest, however, I know I’m going to get restless at some point so for both yours and my benefit I’ll put up a quick body weight routine.

This is mainly meant to get your heart rate up, it’s great for fat loss as well.

I’m staying in Soho a couple blocks away from Little Italy and I looove cannoli’s so a quick little routine won’t hurt.

Body Weight Routine

All of the exercises will be timed, so if you have a stop watch or a clock to look at that’ll help big time.

Each exercise goes for 60 seconds. Do the routine 1x, if you can keep on going, do it again and then rest for 60 seconds at the end.

Squats

Push-ups

Chin-ups – or some kind of pull

Burpees – good luck doing these for a minute but do your best!

Crunches

One arm push up or clap push-ups

Side plank – each side done for 60 seconds each

Lunge jumps

Squat jumps

Doing workouts that go from lower body muscle groups to upper body muscle groups burn more calories than simply doing a whole upper body routine.

This’ll hopefully help burn a few of the cannoli’s I’m about to have!

Give this a shot. I might post another body weight routine up here again in a few days. This one’s tough though,especially with the timed exercises instead of going for reps.

There's a place in Little Italy that claims to have the best cannoli's on earth, and yes they're pretty good :)
