Wednesday: Travel Tips!
Hey Gang! Most of you will be traveling by plane over the next few days. Here are a few tips on how to keep it a healthy experience!
These are just a few tips for getting you guys through the flights layovers and unhealthy food. Here we go!
If you’re planning on using your travel day as a rest day then by all means use this time to rest. Sleep as much as possible. Sleep is just as important to your training as any WOD is.
2. Pushups during layovers.
If you’re on a layover plan on doing X amount of push ups every 5 or 10 mins. This will at least keep you active and working on something during a day that you simply are unable to get to a gym. Tabatas are a great way to get a really great workout done in only 4 minutes. BTW you don’t have to do push ups. Feel free to perform any movements you choose. You already have reps to work on seeing as how we’re waist deep into our Rep-A-Day Challenge.
3. Eat hearty!
One of the biggest dietary woes of traveling is having to cheat due to lack of available paleo meals. If your flight will take less than 4 hours then plan a meal just before you get going. Have a paleo meal prepared. Use cheap storage containers and disposable utensils so you can eat a TON of paleo friendly food just before you board your flight. You should be fine until you land. If your flight or layovers last longer than that then see tip 4.
4. Plan your snacks.
Most Airlines will allow you to bring some sort of trail mix. Stop by Sprouts or some sort of health food store and stock up before your flight. This will allow you to never reach the point of a cheat meal. You’ll stay just under that threshold if you are constantly snacking on something.
5. Choose the healthy travel food options.
If you simply haven’t prepared and now you’re at the mercy of junk food then you have 2 options. You can elect to only eat the healthy options provided on your flights (ex. peanuts and water). Or you can elect to fast for the time it takes you to fly. Fasting for a day is not uncommon and is entirely doable. Be sure to drink plenty of water and prepare your mind to endure it. Think of it as a WOD. If you have health conditions then fasting may not be the option for you. It is however an option.
There you have it Volts and Vixens! Happy travels!
