Our CrossFit Travel Workouts
Keep on reading for this tough WOD that you can get in while on the road from a hotel room, outside or in a hotel gym.
You don’t have to do all of the exercises on the list, but please feel free to pick and choose among them to create a workout of just about any length, from 10 minutes to over an hour.
You have to go for each of the exercises as mentioned below for the number of rounds stated here. Try to cover as many rounds as possible. You have to cover three rounds at least to start with.
- Air squats – 55 reps
- Run – 750 meters
Perform each of the drills mentioned below for the prescribed number of repetitions for 10 minutes. Try to get through as many rounds as you can without taking a rest. Keep count of how many rounds you can get through so that you can outdo your own record next time.
- Burpees – 20 reps
- Sit-ups – 30 reps
- Air squats – 30 reps
Go through all four exercises prescribed below to complete one round. Try to finish five rounds.
- Handstand push-ups – 10 reps
- Jumping lunges – 5 reps per leg
- Sprint – 200 meters
- Mountain climbers – 15 reps
You can perform handstand push-ups on the outside of your home, on a wall, or on a fence. If unable to perform that, just go for regular push-ups. If you have no way to measure 200 meters, just take 30 seconds and run fast.
One full round consists of all the exercises mentioned below. To complete the session, you have to complete all four WODs 10 times.
- Sit-ups – 10 reps
- Push-ups – 20 reps
- Squats – 10 reps
You’ll do this exercise minute by minute.
- Step-ups – 20 reps
- Burpees – 15 reps
Try to complete the exercises in less than 3 minutes. Have a 30 second rest and then complete 2 more rounds.
This workout may seem simpler because you get a little respite, but as you get exhausted, those rest periods will keep getting shorter.
You have to complete the drills here in five rounds. Each of the exercises is to be repeated in five rounds.
- Squats – 15 reps
- Push-ups – 15 reps
- Run – 250 meters
If you’re not habituated to running quickly for a prolonged period of time, this training will probably be a bit tough. But it’s superb if you are looking for a challenge.
- Run – 700 meters
- Sit-ups – 150 reps
- Air squats – 100 reps
- Push-ups – 50 reps
- Run – 700 meters
The strategy is to keep moving. Double everything if you want to perspire even more.
Try to engage in a headstand or handstand for about 5 minute. However, you should be very careful with one thing. Do not spend more than a minute at a time if you are going for a headstand. This is one thing that you must be very careful about.
This one should be continued for 10 rounds, each exercise extending for a minute at maximum.
- Hollow rock hold
- Bottom of squat
- Pleb’s plank
You should use the transition times as breaks, as the rest time should be as limited as possible.
The following has to be done in 10 rounds.
- Sprint – 55 meters
- Push-ups – as many as possible
- Tabata – 5 minutes at each workout
In the case of the push-ups, you have to test your strength and judge your intensity. Go for push-ups that include an extension of the full body and a constricted chest. If you can’t do the push-ups for men, you can try from the knees followed by 150 squats.
In the case of the Tabata, nine rounds have to be performed for 22 seconds with a break of 10 seconds each. You have to do alternate rounds of tick jumps and sit-ups.
Below is the last round for this regimen.
- Alternating pistol squats – 10 reps
- Push-ups – 10 reps
- Pull-ups – 10 reps
- Sit-ups – 10 reps
Pistol squats are a fairly cutting-edge movement, but you can perform them by holding onto a wall for balance or using a counterweight. If the pull-ups are undo-able, just omit them from the regime and perform the other four exercises. As added advice, you can speed up early so that you can keep moving for the entire 15 minutes.
