If you’re eating right and sticking to your regular gym schedule, a trip abroad can throw you a bit off the pace. No harm in getting some cheat days in. Wouldn’t you instead adjust your fitness routine, though? Make your surrounding work for you, so when you can get back, you don’t need to make up for lost days.
Lovi Poe, on her recent trip to Dubai, shared on her Instagram Stories her quick routine on-the-road. Created for her by coach Inigo Hizon, this is how the actress does her #LoviYourBody sans equipment and despite a busy schedule.
She starts with a playlist to get her in the mood. Rap and hip-hop is usually a good pick. Ask Arnold Aninion.
The next steps only require the minimum: a resistance band, jump rope, and a mat. For the latter, get a thin one which won’t take up too much space and weight in your suitcase.
What’s good about this routine is that there’s a mix of cardio, legs workout, and also something for your upper body.
A #LoviYourBody routine won’t be complete without some ab workouts.
There you have it! Inspired? Don’t forget to make sure the routine is suited to you by consulting with a coach. Also, pack some cute workout clothes. You can cop a few things from Bench Active. They are great for beginners as they carry a wide range of options and no-fuss designs. I also like The Shape Shop. Their Active line features sustainable materials and pieces that accommodate different body types.
