Maybe you’ve spent the whole day sitting on a train. Or maybe you had a long night at the Wombar. Or maybe you just miss your gym at home.

Don’t worry, we know what you need! A quick bootcamp – Wombat’s style. Here’s a custom workout we designed together with international fitness gurus especially for you. Almost.

It’s a HIIT routine that you can do without any equipment and almost anywhere while you are travelling. Yes, even in a Wombat’s dorm, as long as you comply with our guidelines. 😉

20 Jumping Jacks
👉 Before you start, please look up to avoid the classic mistake of hitting a lamp with your powerful, swinging arms!

20 Squat Jumps
👉 Focus on a soft landing. This is good for both your joints and your reputation as a hostel guest.

20 Mountain Climbers
👉 1 full mountain climber = 1 left leg rep + 1 right leg rep.

15–20 Push-ups
👉 If you prefer to do push-ups from your knees, you should aim for 20.

10 Burpees
👉 Again, if you do the burpee with a jump – see ‘squat jumps’ about landing softly. Think of your knees and your neighbours. You can find a cool instructional video and the right burpee variation for your fitness level here:

(Please don’t forget the blue outfit for a stylish workout!)

Between each exercise leave a 10 second break.

Repeat the whole sequence 5 times.

So, now you are ready for an exciting day, or another fun evening at the Wombar. Enjoy!
