Travelling for business trips and vacations can be a challenge for those who maintain a regular workout schedule. Booking your business travel at a hotel that has fitness facilities is one way to stick to an exercise routine. Also, packing the suitcase with exercise DVDs, resistance bands and jump ropes can help with getting more fitness into your day.
One of the best tools to invest in is resistance bands. They are compact enough to fit into luggage (even carry ons) and versatile enough for any workout. They can go from adding resistance to squats to aiding in stretching the hamstrings at the end of your workout. Most hotels are now equipped with gyms, but that is not always a guarantee. I suggest investing in resistance bands and thinking creatively. You can always count on body weight based exercise to keep your muscle mass lean and expect an effective workout. When on the go, you can power up your laptop and head over to this site www.michellecfitness.com for full body weight based routines as well as clever push up and squat variations.
An unlimited expense account and eating every meal at restaurants can add additional and unwanted calories. You may be out of your usual eating and exercise routine. To counter the effects, try to increase physical activity. Pack a jump rope for cardio and a resistance band for strength training. You can still try new foods but try to limit the portion sizes. If you drink alcohol, limit or avoid while traveling. Alcohol can disrupt sleep and add lots of extra calories. If you are in a different time zone, sleep will be even more disrupted. As soon as you get back home, get back to your usual routine.
