The 2,000 mile road trip workout

Man, I am so stoked after my recent vacation! It was so cool to see all the mountains, valleys, waterfalls and the very cool attractions we visited.

So how did I workout when I drove over 2,000 miles in a week?

There were 3 ways I did it.

Steering wheel isometrics (don’t do these in heavy traffic)

Crush the steering wheel in from the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions for about 10 seconds.

Then pull the steering wheel apart from the same positions for ten seconds again.

Hit 3 to 5 sets. These will hammer your abs hard as well as your shoulders and lats.

You can also work your way around the clock (steering wheel).

Another thing you can do is put your car on cruise control (not in heavy traffic) and do isometric pushes against the floor boards.

Then switch to flutter kicks.

Alternate these for for 3 to 5 sets.

Of coure you can do pushups, squats dips, etc. at the rest areas. Do a set or two of 25 reps each.

Last of all, hit the hotel fitness room and use whatever you find there. Most have dumbbells up to 50lb. Some have clubs for all you Mace Fit® fans.

Hope that’s helpful for you highway gypsies out there!

It was great to get away but it’s great to get back.

I love to coach, but you might not know that I am also an author.
