What is the equipment you need to do a workout on holiday? Mat, chair, dumbbells or something to step up on safely, that’s all. Here is a 3-week holiday workout for the young and fitness conscious girls. It will help recharge you in a better way.
1. Bulgarian Squat
Stand with your back about a few inches from a bench. Then place your right foot on the bench. Lower your body until your left thigh comes parallel to the floor. Press upon your heel in order to stand up. This makes one rep. Do 10 of these, before you switch sides and then repeat.
2. Incline Push-Ups
In this holiday body workout, place your hands on a bench shoulder-width apart and position your legs behind you. Your posture should be such that your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to heels.
Now do a pushup, bring your torso to the right, raise your right hand towards the ceiling and return to start. This makes 1 rep. Repeat the entire thing on the left side and keep alternating for a total of 14 reps.
3. Two-Way Lunge
You can perform these vacation workouts by first standing with your feet which should be kept hip-width apart. Now place your hands on your hips in order to strike balance. Step to the right in a slow fashion.
Move your weight to your right leg and bend your right knee. Keeping your left leg straight, push off with your right foot and come back to the starting position. Repeat this process with your right leg to complete the entire series of reps. When you are done, switch to your left leg and repeat the exercise.
4. Triceps Dips
If you have to tighten up your triceps which means back of upper arms, then go for Triceps Dips as exercise during the holidays. In order to do this, you just have to sit on a chair and place your hands on your hips, or alternatively, you can stretch yourself by keeping your hands against a stool or backrest. In doing so, remember that your feet should be flat on the floor with your knees bent to 90 degrees. Lift yourself off the chair or stool moving your butt forward so that it comes in front of the seat. Now you need to bend your elbows so that it helps you to lower your body towards the floor. Do 15 reps of this workout.
5. Hip Crossover
Lie on the floor with face up, with your arms extended at shoulder height. Palms should be facing up and outside. Now lift your legs in the air and bend your knees to 90 degrees. Tighten up your abs and lower your legs to the right as far as you can. See to it that you haven’t lifted your shoulders off the ground in this entire holiday workout. Now reverse this movement to your left slowly. This makes it one rep. All you need to do is repeat this 10 times.
6. Glute Bridge And Single Leg Glute Bridge
In order to do this workout on holiday, first of all, lie on the ground by placing your feet shoulder width apart. Now hold a dumbbell above your hips and make sure it is done in a comfortable position. Move your hips straight. At this juncture, pause for a brief moment in the upwards position so that you can squeeze the glutes together. Do it for 5 reps.
When it comes to vacation workouts, small gestures on your part will make a big difference. For instance, make it a point to walk every day, take the stairs more often than lifts, do one specific exercise each day without a break and keep a tab on your food intake.
