8 Travel-Friendly Bodyweight Exercises You Can Do Anywhere

Maintaining a fitness routine while traveling can be challenging, but it’s possible! Here are the 8 travel-friendly bodyweight exercises you can do anywhere to keep up your energy and stay active.

1. Bodyweight Squats:

Begin by positioning your feet to shoulder width. Lower your hips as though you are settling into an invisible chair, maintaining an upright chest and straight back. Propel yourself up to a standing position by exerting force through your heels.

2. Push-Ups:

A fantastic upper-body exercise. Place your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and extend your legs straight behind you. Lower your body towards the ground by bending your elbows, then push back up.

3. Lunges:

Step one foot forward and bend both knees to 90-degree angles. Push through your front heel to stand back up and switch legs. This exercise works your legs and glutes.

4. Plank:

Strengthen your core with a plank. Keep your body straight from head to heels, resting on your forearms and toes. Then Engage your core muscles and hold the position for as long as possible.

5. Mountain Climbers:

Mountain Climbers are a dynamic exercise where you start in a plank position and quickly alternate bringing your knees towards your chest in a running motion. This workout targets your core, shoulders, and legs, while also elevating your heart rate for a cardio boost.

6. Tricep Dips:

Find a sturdy surface like a chair or bench. Sit on the edge with your hands gripping the edge beside your hips. Slide your hips off the surface, lower your body by bending your elbows, then push back up.

7. Reverse Crab Walk:

Start in a seated position and push up into a bridge. Lift your right hand and left leg, and reach across the body toward your toes, keeping your hips off the floor and rotating your torso. Repeat on the left.

8. Burpees:

A full-body exercise that gets your heart pumping. Start with a squat, kick your legs back into a plank, do a push-up, bring your legs back to the squat position, and jump up explosively.


These versatile and effective exercises allow you to work multiple muscle groups without any equipment. And even just 20 minutes of these exercises can keep you active and maintain your fitness while you explore new places.
