I am super excited to hear when clients are going away on vacation. Most Americans on average actually don’t take all the vacation time they are allotted, so please go away and take a break!
Your best bet to stay on track with your workouts is to always be aware of your surroundings and take advantage of everything you encounter. Stairs? Take them! Use your hip flexor as you pick your leg up, and then place your heel on the step and drive thru your heel to use your glute and hamstring to complete the step up. That’s an easy example as a way to activate good muscles!
In the video below, I find myself at the airport in the early morning awaiting a long flight. There is nothing I dislike more than sitting for hours on end, so I start scanning my environment. What could I possibly do to move and keep an eye on the gate and hear any announcements that might come over the speaker? Don’t sit down in the waiting area! Grab a chunk of wall and try a gentle Airbench. Split your feet apart and stretch the insides of the thighs. Simply walk the concourses.
Or, as maybe you’ve seen dancers display on social media, use the walking sidewalks to your advantage. What direction do I like to go on a moving sidewalk? Watch the video below to see, and remember the sandals make for a little more concentration. 🙂
Let me know in the comments below what you do to offset the extended sitting and long hours on the plane, train, or automobile!
