I know from experience, that when you’re on the road, you tend to not be thinking of fitness and staying in shape. I stuff my face with what I want, when I want. It’s a problem really! For example, for the past few months I’ve been on a strict Paleo Diet (fantastic results, try it). However, when I went to Qatar in May, I was on the far opposite spectrum of Paleo. I don’t know if I’ve ever eaten so much rice in such a short time frame!
Now, although I had a strict diet, I am not going to venture to a foreign land and not indulge in their cultural food! But I was still concerned with my fitness level.. So what did I do? Well I looked up 30 Minute Bodyweight Workouts. I found no lack of regimens and was able to complete them with little wasted time in areas no larger than well… a bedroom! Was I making athletic and fitness progress? No, absolutely not. But was a making up for the eating I was doing? Well.. still probably not. But it helped!
Here’s the workout I did, check it out.
In closing, it’s also important to consider going for a run! I love running in a new city. It’s a great way to explore a lot of it quickly, and then mentally bookmark where you want to come back to!
