I just got back from a fun and relaxing vacay in Mexico. If you know me then it’s no surprise that my GF and I workout when we’re on vacation and this was no exception especially because we were on a cruise.
Lots of cruise ships have gyms and believe it or not they can get crazy crowded. You don’t have to waste your time with that mess if you head to the top of the ship where the running track usually is.
The workout I put together for you here is super simple and quick. It just happens to be cardio based, but if you wanted to you could swap out the “rest” exercises for more strength based type moves like pushups and squats.
So here are the nuts and bolts for the Cruise Quicky Workout…
- Choose 2 exercises as “rest” that you’ll perform at 2 ends of the track. In the video we chose a Single-Leg Drinking Bird AKA Single-Leg Deadlift and Bent Over W-Y’s.
- When you reach one end of the track perform the 1st exercise you selected as rest for :30 then…
- Run to the other end of the track and perform the 2nd exercise you selected as rest for :30.
- Repeat the sequence for as many as 8-10 times around the track then call it a day.
It was really fun doing this workout when we shot the video because we were sailing back to Long Beach and Hurricane Hillary was on our tail. We were about a day ahead of the storm but the waters were choppy which made the boat feel like a big stability ball.
Just more challenge to your balance right?
I hear so many people say that their workouts and eating go to hell when you take a cruise. Well yes if you let it. Don’t let a crowded gym be the reason you skip a workout. As long as you find some open space you can still stay lean and mean.
