1 Week Travel Workouts

With my instagram and blog name to be "Stay Fit and Travel", I am very sorry that I haven't uploaded any Travelling Workout posts until now - after all these months. But yes, it is finallly here! So we will be travelling to Vietnam for a week (Jan 4-10) and below is the work out plan that we wrote - these workouts are all home/hotel room-friendly, meaning you will not need ANY gym equipment (not even weights) as we would not have a gym for most of the days except for the first and the last. In addition, all of these workouts will not take longer than 30 minutes of the day so we will not be missing out on the travelling and exploring experience - which is the most important thing when you travel right? ;p Hope you find this helpful to you when you want to STAY FIT AND TRAVEL :D

As you can see, we add 10 minutes Abs workout to almost every single day (except for rest days) it is because I am weirdly obsessed with abs haha but these abs workout are optional for you if you are not as crazy about abs as I am. I would let you know if we manage to stick to this work out plan throughout our trip (: Happy Travel Fit!!
