What can you do if you travel a lot and can’t get to the gym enough? Well, you can always do your exercise on the airplane itself!

Bizarre, I know, but after a long flight home recently, I was surprised to find the lovely flight attendant, Tasha, doing biceps curls with the water bottles in the back of the plane. This brought a smile to my face, and here is her routine:

  1. Water bottle curls x 25 reps
  2. Squat to press with water bottles x 25
  3. Lunge to curl with water bottles x 25
  4. Lateral raises on a single leg with water bottles x 25
  5. Reverse fly with water bottles x 25
  6. Pushups on seat x 25
  7. Dips on the seat x 25
  8. Reverse crunches on the seat x 25

So, for a total of 200 reps, you get your airplane program groove on. You must make sure you stay seated if the plane requires you to do so. Safety first, ALWAYS!  Otherwise, keep your fitness going no matter where life may bring you.
