Are you constantly on the go? Do you have a job that has you on the road most or all of the time? It may seem like it’s impossible to stay healthy when you are this busy, but you can.
And guess what? It doesn’t involve a gym! Nope, you can do all of these exercises anywhere, whether that be in your office, your cubicle, or your hotel room.
Here Are 5 Exercises To Do When On The Go:
1. Walking Lunge
Step 1: Stand straight & tall with your hands on your hips. Feet together.
Step 2: Step forward with your left leg and bend at the knees until your right knee is parallel to the floor and your left knee is at a 90-degree angle. The knee of the leg that’s forward should not pass your toes.
Step 3: As you squeeze your glute muscles, bring your back leg up to meet with the front leg, but rather than stopping, keep that leg going forward so that the back leg is now the front leg in a lunge position. Continue walking forward into a lunge position, alternating legs. Repeat for the total amount of desired repetitions.
2. Walking High Knees
Step 1: Start in a standing position.
Step 2: As you walk forward with your left foot, bend your left knee at a 90-degree angle and raise it up as high as you can.
Step 3: Place your left leg back down slightly ahead of where you started (because you’re walking at the same time). Then alternate going forward and raising your knee as high as you can with your right leg. Repeat with both legs one at a time while walking forward for the desired amount of reps or time.
3. Squat/Front Kicks
Step 1: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, back straight, legs straight, toes pointed out straight in front of you. Place your hands on your hips for balance and support.
Step 2: Slowly bend at the knees and lower your body into a squatting position. Don’t let your knees go past your toes. (Hint: squat down as if you are about to sit in a chair)
Step 3: Place hands in a defense position in front of your face (think of protecting your face from someone trying to punch it). As you stand back up, squeeze your glutes and shift your weight to the left side and kick your right leg up in front of you as high as you can.
Step 4: Slower lower your leg back down to the ground so both legs are shoulder width apart again. Slowly lower back down into a squat position. As you stand back up, squeeze your glutes and shift your weight to the right side and kick your left leg up in front of you as high as you can. Repeat for the desired amount of reps alternating legs.
This is probably the easiest exercise to do. No special instructions needed, just place one foot in front of the other and go!
5. Wall Push Ups
Step 1: Stand directly in front of a wall with your toes touching the bottom of the wall. Bend your elbows at a 90-degreee angle and place your palms on the wall in front of you.
Step 2: Without moving your upper body take one step back behind you, with both feet, away from the wall. You should now be in a traditional push-up position but against the wall.
Step 3: As you straighten your elbows, push your upper body away from the wall. Do not move your lower body. Slowly bend back at the elbows to bring your chest back towards the wall. Repeat for the total amount of reps.
This could be a list of exercise people can do when you are out and about on long commutes.
