Bodyweight Cardio in a Hotel or Park
“Just a thank you for BWC 5. I have been able to do A and B in my hotel room in Le Mans, France. Keeps me feeling almost
normal over here.” – Suzy Stout, via Facebook
Regardless of whether you like it hot or not, I once did this bodyweight session in a hotel room in Jersey with the airconditioning on full-blast and I was still sweating buckets.
- Start with a general bodyweight warm-up circuit.
- Do each exercise for 50 seconds and rest for 10 seconds
- before moving to the next exercise.
- Rest 60 seconds after completing each circuit.
- Go through each circuit once.
- For the TRX Circuit (3A-3E), use non-TRX versions if you
- don’t have a TRX or Jungle Gym XT.

Static Stretching for tight muscles to finish off. It’s the perfect plan for the park, the gym, your hotel room, or your home.
That’s one of the best bodyweight workout deals ever.

PS – If it’s already really hot (or cold) where you are…
You can do these workouts inside.
In fact, I “invented” Bodyweight Cardio 5 inside a New Jersey hotel room out of necessity. That hotel had one of the WORST gyms of any hotel I’d ever stayed at. But I still got a great workout with this program.
Never worry about a gym again.
