7 Intense Travel WODS: 15min or Less and Minimal Equipment

by Jordan Syatt May 1, 2019

Travel WODS

Today I’ll show you how to burn fat & build muscle while travelling without a gym.

At the end of this article I’m going to give you 7 high intensity travel WODs that take less than 15-minutes to complete and require very little equipment. 

These quick, metabolic circuits are the backbone of my workouts while travelling, and are one of the main reasons why I’m able to stay lean, burn fat, and build strength even when I’m travelling without a gym.

But don’t skip ahead just yet. First let’s chat about equipment.

You don’t need a fully equipped gym to get a great workout in, but when I travel there are three small tools I never leave home without.

3 Pieces of Recommended Equipment for Travel WODS

Furniture Sliders

Cheap, travel friendly, and incredibly versatile,  furniture sliders can dramatically increase the difficulty of any body weight exercise while providing way more movement variety.

Here are three of my favorite drills using furniture sliders (that are also wicked challenging).

Body Saw

One of my personal favorite anti-extension based core strengthening exercises, the body saw increases the lever arm relative to a normal plank which makes it suck a whole lot more very difficult.

Obviously I’m not using furniture sliders here but if I were to do the same thing with sliders under my feet on a carpeted surface it would work just as well.

Slider Push-Up

Whether you’re training for a 1-arm push-up or just looking for a great upper body workout, this Slider Push-Up is a quick and easy way to blast your chest, triceps, and shoulders. 

Slider Leg Curl

A staple in my training programs regardless of whether I’m travelling or not, the Slider Leg Curl is simultaneously the most effective and horrendously painful way to strengthen your hamstrings (and to a lesser extent your glutes).

Think it looks easy? Try it and let me know how it goes.
