Did you take the advice of Mary Moslander and the team of fitness experts at Livehealthier.com and Hit the Wall or Cook Up those Calves? It worked so well for us we went back for more travel fitness tips.Shop and drop. Pair the task of unpacking with sets of squats. Place your suitcase on the floor. Put one item away at a time, bending into a squat position to pick each item up and then standing tall to place it in the closet or dresser. Practice good form by pressing your hips back as if you’re sitting in a chair. “Keep your chest raised and your knees behind your toes as you lower your body,” Moslander advises. “Then push through both heels to stand up.”
Sleeping and crunching. Instead of using the time when everyone’s still asleep to catch up on your reading, squeeze an ab workout into the early morning or late night hours. “Grab a towel and place it on the ground and lie down on your back,” says Moslander. Crunch until your shoulders are off the ground, hold for three seconds and inhale as you release, then return to starting position.
