Don’t you’re there to relax...
This will be quite a quick blog post about what you can do exercise wise on holiday.
The easiest way to exercise on holiday is walk - stop hiring a moped or buggy or getting a taxi to go 10 minutes down the road, walk everywhere, I always carry a pouch for valuables - with sun cream, coin change and notes, make sure you have as much water as you can carry and just bloody walk, it’s amazing when you just go exploring in a new city or place as long as it’s safe to do so, just go for a wonder, you find some amazing things too.
The second one is Swim! Chances are you are you getting to the sun because England doesn’t have it, let’s face it 5 days of summer doesn’t count as Sunny England, so you’ll stay somewhere with a pool or near beach or both - so take the opportunity to swim or learn to swim! I have retaught myself to swim and getting better and better each holiday and now look forward to getting away to swim! It’s a great all over workout that’s bloody hard on your cardio health too - if you have poor mobility it’s amazing at loosening you up and allowing you to move more freely.
Thirdly - Find a gym - this doesn’t need any explanation just do your own workout in a gym!
Finally - Do a ghetto workout in your room, this takes a bit of dismantling of beds, overfilling of suitcases and the like but once ready can be a gruelling task, you can do dips on the side of the bed, into press ups into weighted burpees in bent-over suitcase rows, into Kettlebell swings but with your bag, jumping lunges with a backpack, shoulder press with your suit case, squat and press with your bag, single leg Glute Bridges loads of stuff!
Do it to a time rather than rep range and just go for it!
Personally I don’t like the idea of training while you’re on holiday apart from relaxing exercises like swimming and walking, for me I’m there to get away from everything I normally do and everyone I’m normally with - I’m there to completely shut down, restart and reload my whole mindset, state of being and purpose and to just explore somewhere new and exciting!
