Traveling shouldn’t stop you from getting in a good workout. Whether you’re at a hotel, Airbnb or even a campsite, here are five exercises you can do to tune up your tri muscles.
Sometimes on the road you’ve just got yourself, your luggage and very little room. We’ve compiled the ultimate workout for anyone light on time, space and equipment but not motivation. These killer exercises are a mix of cardio, core and strength training that engage many of the major muscles that every triathlete should work. Do two sets, and 30 minutes later you’ll feel the burn.

This movement builds core for all three sports and works the shoulders and hip flexors. Begin at the top of a push-up position. While holding your core tight, drive your right knee to right elbow, and return to starting position. Now left knee to left elbow. Once back in the push-up position, drop your right elbow down to rest, making your forearm flat on the ground, then drop your left elbow. Hold for a two count with a tight core. Then raise up your right elbow, then your left to the original push-up position. Repeat by leading with the left knee and dropping your left elbow first.
