Business trips are commonly the death of 출장 many well meaning exercise habits.
Business travelers often have to put their life, including their regular gym sessions, on hold whilst they jump from city to city on business.
It`s hard enough to keep up with a good exercise habit at best of times without the disruption caused by a trip away. Despite the best intentions we often do not continue training while we are away; the habit to train is normally attached to work out and a specific gym or location that we feel comfortable in. Once this comfort zone is removed it is all too easy to make excuses.
Where consistent progress is the key to reducing body fat or maintaining a healthy fit body, if you are away for one week in three, your progress will be severely hampered, and all your hard work in the preceding weeks can be undone by a week away stuck in a hotel room.
Coupled with this, a lack of absolute control over your nutrition, heightened stress of being away from your family and familiar surroundings, as well as the unpredictability of travel plans, your body can take a real beating.
One of the top excuses for not training is a lack of equipment. Most of my clients now appreciate that this is not a valid reason, given the calisthenic nature of most routines I prescribe. However many peoples` routines are machine based workouts on fixed path “nautilus” style machines. Despite the quality of some hotel Gyms, it is unlikely that they have exactly the same level of equipment as your regular gym.
Even if you workout with free weights it is obviously not practical to carry a set of dumbbells in your carry on luggage. So what does this leave us with for your training?
I spent my last few years dedicating my research and adapting my training techniques to a more functionally based system, I can more wholeheartedly say that training using only your bodyweight as a resistance should be the focus of everyone regardless of their age, gender, exercise background and specific medical conditions.
Without the support of a comfortable leather trimmed seats on your favorite ab crunch or leg extension machines, your body is having to work ten times harder to balance and control movements you ask of it. The fixed path nature of many Gym machines means that you are making the big strong muscles stronger whilst the small weak stabilizing muscles are being neglected even more. When using your bodyweight as resistance your body must in majority of situations, work as in a complete system, rather than the isolated nature of your normal gym machine circuit.
