Using your body weight is the most effective thing you can use when exercising and travelling. I mean, no one is going to bring 4kg dumbells with them on a trip and we don’t always have access to a hotel gym or local gym.

Effective use of your body weight means that you can travel light, stay active and well while travelling without having to sacrifice working out just because you dont have access to a gym.

This is a little full-body, cardio intense circuit that will guarantee you end your workout on a high. Add it onto the end or beginning of your workout or work it into your usual circuit.

Lunges

Start by standing straight and then lunge forward with one leg. Make sure your knee doesn’t go further forward than your toes. Your knee should be at a 45-degree angle. Repeat 10-15 times on each leg. This exercise is amazing for all your leg muscles and glutes.

Burpees

Start in a plank position then jump forward to tuck your knees into your chin then burst upwards into a star jump. Repeat 10 times. The exercise works your whole body and gets your heart pumping.

Push ups

Start in a plank position with your hands on the ground, directly under your shoulders. Release your elbows until your shoulders are in line with your elbows. Push back up. Repeat for 10 reps. Check out the video here for beginner variations.

Mountain Climbers

Start in a plank position with your hands under your shoulders. Run your knees one at a time up to your chin, as though your were trying to run up a mountain. Keep your abdominals engaged. Repeat 20 times.

If using as a finisher then 1 or 2 sets will suffice. Why not challenge yourself? Try to see how many times you can do this workout before it really starts to burn.
