There is no excuse to stop training when you are away on holiday. Of course you may have to change your programme a little but with a little imagination you can get by. First off, when booking your hotel – book a hotel with a gym then you can train every morning before breakfast. It doesn’t need to be the best gym in the world either consider this easy boot camp programme with only a pair of dumbbells:
Weight loss programme
A1. DB squat push press 5 sets of 15-20 reps, rest 10 seconds
A2. Seated DB shoulder press 5 sets of 12-15 reps, rest 10 seconds
A3. DB Walking lunge 5 sets of 8-10 reps each leg, rest 10 seconds
A4. Lat pull down 5 sets of 12-15 reps, 10 seconds rest
A5. Low box step up 5 sets of 15-20 each leg, 10 seconds rest
A6. DB bench press 5 sets of 12-15 reps, 3 minutes rest and go back to A1.
Finish off with some interval work on a bike or a treadmill or just go for a run on the beack for 20 minutes. In fact sand sprints are a great way to keep in shape.
Rapid fat loss
Try doing 10 sets of 40 seconds hard running in the sand, followed by 60-120 seconds rest. This will tighten and tone your legs as well as your lungs and you’ll be burning fat for hours afterwards.
