How to: Stand in a position similar to the one you take when you are going to start running. Raise each leg alternatively, imitating the running gesture, but without moving from the spot and exaggerating the elevation of the knees, which must always exceed the height of the hip. Simultaneously, move your arms to the rhythm set by the opposite leg. Do it for a minimum of three minutes in 30-second sprints, resting 15 seconds between each sprint.

How to: Standing with your legs open at shoulder distance, squat down until your legs are bent at a 90º angle, and engage your core.

How to: Go on the high plank position and keep hands at a shoulder-width distance. When in plank, bring the right knee to the chest, place the right foot on the floor, and back it out again. Repeat the same movement with the left knee and foot. Repeat the action 8 times for each leg.

Repeat the cycle in 3 sets, with 10 sit-ups each set and 15 seconds break.

How to: This is the time to use the hotel shower the right way. Hold the towel at the front by the ends of it.

Now maintaining the tension, bring the towel closer to you and again extend it in the front of you. Repeat 10 reps in 3 sets.
Lying down Bicycle exercise
Helps in: Increasing lower joint mobility and improving blood circulation in legs.
How to: Lying down bicycling looks like one of the most accessible hotel workouts as it is a low-impact exercise. Start by lying flat on the back and place your hands behind the head. Bend your knees at a 90-degree angle and rotate the legs like you are riding a bicycle. You can slightly change the simple workout by leaning up and touching your left elbow to the right knee, then connecting the right elbow to the left knee. Repeat 10 cycles in 3 sets with a 10 seconds break.
Helps in: strengthening the lumbar, dorsal, and shoulders.

How to: Begin by standing position with both the feet together. Jump up in a wide 'V,' spreading both the arms and legs. Finish by bringing the arms and legs together by the side. It is essential to choose the broader spot in the hotel room and cushion the fall to not hurt yourself. Three sets of six to eight reps per leg is a good cadence.
Helps in: target the glutes and quads while challenging your balance.
How to: Place a sturdy chair against the wall and position yourself far enough in front of the chair to place the top of your left foot on the seat of the chair. Keeping your front knee behind your toes, bend both knees and sink down with your weight on your front heel until your standing thigh is parallel to the floor. Press the front heel and return to an upright position. Do 10 reps, shake your left leg, then switch to the right leg and do another 10 reps. Keep your chest elevated and look forward during this exercise - don't let your shoulders or torso lean forward or lean toward the floor.
Helps in: Strengthening the biceps and improving posture.
How to: Get behind your chair with your feet some distance apart. Grab both sides of the chair so that the palms face each other. Make sure your thumbs are inside the chair. Lock your elbows at your hips, pull your shoulders back and bend your elbows as you lift the chair, bringing your hands towards your shoulders. With control and without dropping the chair, get it back to the starting position. Complete 3 sets of 10 reps.
If your room has an abnormally heavy chair, pick your backpack to do the workout instead.
Helps in: Engaging the core, strengthening calves and shoulders, and improving blood circulation.
How to: Move into a pushup position and lift your hips as high as possible towards the ceiling, moving your legs towards your arms. Keep your legs and back straight, making sure that the body forms a triangular shape with the floor. Now do a pushup and keep your legs and back straight. Repeat 5 reps in 2 sets, and you are suitable for the day.
Helps in: The twists bring circulation to the abdominal region and energize the whole body.
How to: Start with sitting cross-legged and with a high spine, abs pulled in. Inhale and, moving from the hips, raise your arms above your head. As you exhale slowly, rotate to the left, lightly grasping the outside of the left knee with your right hand or touching it with the outside of the right wrist.
The left hand should be palm facing down on the ground, with fingers pointing back behind the left hip. Remember to keep a straight spine and suck your abs. Repeat on both sides,
Helps in: engaging the full-body muscles and the best cardio.
How to: Start in the full squat position with your hands, palms facing down, on the floor in front of you. Jump straight into a plank position by pulling your feet back. Immediately hang up in the starting position and then stand up. Repeat 5 cycles in 2 sets as flashbacks from high school gym classes flood your head.
Helps in: lengthen the hip flexors, stretch the abdominals, and strengthen the arm muscles.
How to: Turn onto your stomach and place your hands on the ground just below your shoulders, near your ribs. The feet should be relaxed and the necks raised to align the ears at shoulder height, straightening the spine. Pressing your palms to the floor, slowly raise your body until you are balancing on your knees and your arms straight (or stop early if you feel lower back pain). As you stand up, your head should naturally begin to face forward to keep your spine straight. Hold it for a couple of seconds before slowly lowering yourself in the initial position.
