Hotel Room Workout.

A simple routine for working out in your hotel room or bedroom with no equipment

Building off the popularity of the Mix & Match Travel Workout I’ve created the Total-body Hotel Room Workout Program that can be done without any equipment at all.

If you missed the previous workout Johnny requested, have a look here. It’s an easy to follow mix & match travel workout that uses any equipment you might find at a park or on your back. I also give some easy to follow tips on how to eat while traveling and not blow your diet!

The Total-body Hotel Workout Program

There are three workouts in this program. The first two are strength focused and the third one is a HIIT circuit focused on burning fat. Each one will take 30-40 minutes and can be done anywhere. I recommend alternating the strength workouts every other day two or three days per week. You can do the HIIT circuit on any non-strength training day. It’s really up to how you feel and what your body is capable of handling.

Trained individuals will have no problem doing the strength workouts daily. Others may want to limit the strength workouts to 2x per week. Listen to your body and act accordingly!

The HIIT circuit is based on timed sets. You’ll be doing 40 seconds of work followed by 20 seconds of rest. HIIT stands for High-Intensity Interval Training. That means you need to put in the maximum effort possible when performing these exercise. This will really kick the fat burners into overdrive which will keep you burning calories for hours after the workout. If you’re swimming in a pool of sweat after this one, you’re not doing it right ;).


Warmup!


The warmup is essential to making sure you get an effective workout and more importantly, prevent injury. Spend about 3-5 minutes minimum warming up with this simple routine.

8-12 reps for each of the following exercises will be plenty.

1. Shoulder circles

2. Hip circles

3. Spidermans

4. Thoracic rotations

5. Walkout Pushups

6. Bodyweight Squats


Hotel Strength Workout 1:


This workout contains three supersets. Supersets are two exercises performed one after the other for the prescribed number of sets. You can rest about 30-45 seconds between each exercise or just enough to catch your breath.

 

You will start with Bulgarian Split Squat and T-Pushups for the first superset. Do 8-15 reps per side per exercise depending on strength and ability. You will go back and forth between these two exercises for three sets then move on to the next superset.

The next superset is Glute Bridges and Alternating Feet and Arm plank. Again, do 8-15 reps and repeat for three sets before moving on to the next superset.

Finally, you will finish with Side Plank and Floor Raises. Hold the side plank for 30-60 seconds per side. There are three positions for the floor raises. Do 8 reps in each position. Three rounds on this superset as well.


Hotel Strength Workout 2


Just like our previous workout, this one also contains three supersets. You can rest about 30-45 seconds between each exercise or just enough to catch your breath.

For the first superset, you will start with Squat Jumps and Plyo Pushups. Do 8-12 reps per exercise depending on strength and ability. You will go back and forth between these two exercises for four sets then move on to the next superset.

The next superset is Single-leg Glute Bridges and Hollow Body Rocker. Again, do 8-12 reps and repeat for three sets before moving on to the next superset.

Finally, you will finish with Pike Press and Supermans. Again, do 8-12 reps and repeat for three sets.


Hotel Room Fat-Blaster Circuit


This is a nine exercise circuit. You will perform each exercise 40 seconds and complete as many reps as possible. After the 40 seconds, you will rest for 20 seconds and then move on to the next exercise.

Once you have completed all nine exercises that’s one round. Repeat for a total of three or four rounds depending on time and ability. Rest one minute between each round. Each round should take exactly 10 minutes.

1. Jumping Jacks

2. Air Squats

3. Pushups

4. Alternating Lunge

5. Mountain Climber

6. Single-Leg Romanian Deadlift (Left Leg)

7. Single-Leg Romanian Deadlift (Right Leg)

SEE ABOVE

8. T-Pushup

9. High-Knee Run


Let’s recap:

Alternate the two strength workouts every other day 2-3x per week and the circuit routine can be done on non-strength days. I always recommend at least one rest day per week. You can always throw in a run or another type of cardio exercise to change it up as well.


An example week might look like this:

Monday: Strength 1

Tuesday: Fat-Blaster Circuit

Wednesday: Strength 2

Thursday: Fat-Blaster Circuit

Friday: Strength 1

Saturday: Fat-Blaster Circuit

Sunday: Chill 🙂


Some might want to do a week like this:

Monday: Fat-Blaster Circuit

Tuesday: Strength 1

Wednesday: Run 5k

Thursday: Strength 2

Friday: Fat-Blaster Circuit

Saturday: Chill 🙂

Sunday: Bike 12k


The idea is to keep it flexible. Unless you are training for a specific event, it’s best to keep it fresh by changing it up. This will reduce the chance of injury and stagnation.
