May was a busy and fun Month for Team RundleFit. We left our home base of Spokane, Washington for the first time in three years and embarked on a fun, active vacation in the Orange County of Southern California. Laguna Beach to be precise. This may not be the case for some, but squeezing in quick and effective total body workout was on the itinerary for most of the trip.

No gym, no problem!

Hotel room workouts are something we’ve done whether the hotel has a gym or not. We don’t like wasting time, and love making fitness count with HIIT training concepts that can be performed in under 20-30 minutes. The first routine, was an upper body hotel room workout.

We used our bodyweight, and surroundings to complete the daily workout. In addition, we used the hotel room desk for Australian Pull-Ups (inverted bodyweight rows), double bagged, paper grocery bag filled with water bottles for bicep curls and lateral (deltoid / shoulder) raises and our suitcase.

Check out the video below to see the full workout. The exercise program is listed underneath the workout.
