If I want to fit in a quick work out on holiday, I have to keep it simple and short. Try this no equipment needed workout. Set 5, 8 or 10 minutes on the timer and repeat as many times as possible. As always, listen to your body and take breaks where needed. Take the first couple of rounds slowly as your body starts to warm up and hold a childs pose for 6-8 seconds plus a few cat camels at the end
10 Squat or Squat Kicks – standing feet shoulder width apart, bring your arms forward as your bottom comes back, any knee issues stick to a 10 second wall squat at 45 degrees or hold on to the side, do not let knees come in front of toes https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cdah5cNT7hn9_xdThHgVXY-1_3BG1KEm/view?usp=sharing
10 Walk Down Burpees – feet shoulder width apart, bend the knees as you bring hands to the floor and walk forward into a plank. Walk hands back and come back to standing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MIff-kR8V6M2wiISusQD3HtFCzALK8JN/view?usp=sharing
10 Push Ups – on your knees or full push up, hands shoulder width apart, wrists in line with shoulders. If you’re on all fours keep your hands slightly wider to stop lower back dipping. If this is too tricky take it against a wall instead https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-LMxbipJIYPVqwbRkCVu_hWhJxYgAtdV/view?usp=sharing
10 Shoulder Taps – in a plank position, knees up or down, tap one hand to the opposite shoulder. Keep hips still as possible but if moving, bring knees down https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Lh43CGbeoEmeqxMl-pouj6dqdKtP5F2y/view?usp=sharing
