New Delhi: It’s on busy days that people realize how less 24 hours are to do literally everything – whether it’s cooking, household chores, work, studies, and of course squeezing out time for fitness. Amid every important task, fitness should ideally occupy an important place in everyone’s routines, but unfortunately it does not. And when you’re on the move — while traveling for work or school or simply to relax and unwind, exercise takes a back seat. But a lack of time doesn’t make it any less important to focus on fitness even when you’re not at home. Don’t worry, celebrity fitness instructor Anshuka Parwani has a solution for this too – in a recent Instagram Reel video, she shared a routine that can help make time for fitness while traveling.
“Do you travel a lot? Do you have those holidays that you just give in and end up as a lazy potato. I promise you – Here is my way – quick and easy exercise – you can do anywhere and anytime. It just lifts you up instantly and is a great way to get that blood circulation going. Fun Fact – While we’re on the go from home, it’s always a good idea to follow a fitness routine that helps you stay fit and on track. Taking some time out for a quick routine will help you in the long run. You won’t break the momentum of your routine and it also helps you relax, reduce stress and maintain energy levels. For those who can’t stand it, do a few planks of 30 seconds each – your body will thank you. Try this routine for 2-3 rounds. Don’t repeat the headstand, once is good enough,” she wrote in a detailed caption.
Parwani’s workout for travels is as follows:
- Jumping jacks: 1-2 minutes
- Spine and shoulder mobility: 10 repetitions
- Squat: 10 reps
- Jump Squat: 10 reps
- Thumb Worms: 10 reps
Headstand for 1-2 minutes or planks in case you don’t know the sirasana or haven’t perfected it yet. Parwani also wrote that while a two-minute headstand is too long for most people, they can try performing planks for 30 seconds instead. In terms of health benefits, this routine helps with the following:
- Weight loss
- Strong core muscles
- Strong and toned leg muscles
- Improved blood circulation in the body
- Helps to calm the nerves
