No excuses…

Posted on: February 9th, 2012 by Rachel Cosgrove

On the road and decided to hit the gym for a strength workout. I never know what I’ll walk into at a hotel gym. This morning I walked in to a row of treadmills with a chalk board to sign up to get in line with a 30 minute limit….No Thanks…

And a room full of equipment to sit on…

But around the corner I found some dumbbells and this “functional training area!”

So what did I do? Well, here was my exact workout….

Active warm up/ movement prep/ stretch and even foam rolling (yes there was a foam roller in that functional corner)

1A Box Jumps on the Reebok Steps near the free weights for my power exercise 2 sets x 8 reps

2A Medicine Ball Wood Chops as my core exercise  2 sets X 8 reps each

3A Dumbbell Deadlift with the 50 lb dumbbells 3 x 12 reps (Those are my 50 lb dumbbells on the floor)

3B T Push Up 3 x 12 reps

3C Rear Foot Elevated Split Squat with 30 lb dumbbells 3 x 12 reps

4A Single Arm Dumbbell Push Press with 30 lb DB 3 x 12 reps each

4B Single leg Romanian Deadlift with single arm row 3 x 12 each

Finisher: Medicine Ball Body Weight Jump Squats  2 X 8 reps

Jot it down and use it next time your in a hotel gym to get your workout done!
