Finding the time to exercise while traveling is tough, yes, but so is finding the space. Maybe you’re stuck in your grandmother’s tiny house during Thanksgiving or in a crowded beach condo over Memorial Day weekend, with nary a gym in sight.
No worries. Thanks to DC trainer Errick McAdams, this workout is crafted for those in tight spots who need to get in a sweat sans gym equipment. So now you really have no excuse—sorry!
Beginners should complete the below workout once, while advanced athletes should perform all the rounds twice. Happy sweating!
10 jumping jacks
1 squat thrust (a burpee without a push-up or jump at the end)
