20 Minute Hotel Room Mini Band Workout

This past week during my road trip, I spent a night at a hotel in Hampton, VA.

I hadn’t exercised out in a few days, and when I went to the gym on site it was under construction…so I made up my own workout while IN the hotel room, using nothing but a mini band. In just 20 minutes I had warmed up, exercised my entire body, and stretched out afterward.

For this workout I wanted to aim for a complete full body routine that will build muscle, burn fat, and also exercise your heart. These types of workouts burn more calories than simple cardio. (Blah cardio).

I hit 8 exercises covering these 4 areas:

Legs – working both the front and back of your legs
Push – chest, shoulders, triceps
Pull – back, biceps, forearms
Core – abs and lower back

That means that you can work out almost every muscle in your body with just 8 exercises – simplicity for the win!

Always start with a warm-up: 25 jumping jacks, 10 squats, 10 push ups, 10 lunges (each leg), 10 hip raises, 25 jumping jacks. Do one exercise right after another – this should take you probably 3-4 minutes.

If you are doing this workout fasted (which I recommend), drink your BCAAs! Also, wear your heart rate monitor to see how many calories you are actually burning.

After that, move into your workout –set your tabata timer for 3 tabatas/30 seconds work/10 seconds rest/1 minute between tabatas to prepare

So, here it is! Scroll down to do the workout with me (Watch the Video)!
