Traveling doesn’t always have to be straightforward. You don’t have only to sightsee. The joy of traveling comes from the prospect of trying to do everything possible, especially things that you can’t do at home. Every time I went on a trip when I was younger, I gave my best to experience things that are new and interesting. At one point, I stumbled upon an article which stated that physical activity, mainly exercises, while traveling is a great idea. It made me second-guess the claim, considering people usually go on trips to relax and recharge their batteries, not exercise. So, in the beginning, I was doubtful. However, after some time had passed, and I started exercising while traveling, my opinion changed. Suddenly, I couldn’t imagine myself without using a trip anymore, and this train of thought has enriched almost all of my recent trips. Here in this article, I present you Simple Exercises You Can Do While Traveling

You don’t have to get yourself all pumped and vast, but you can if you want. The point is to keep yourself physically active. Almost at all times so that your body doesn’t let itself go too much. I’ve even taken on the responsibility of chopping wood when I visit my family. Not only does it allow them to have one less thing to think about, but it also helps me stay in great shape. For those of you that don’t have the possibility of working on a farm or in a village, doing similar chores, essential exercising will be excellent. Although these exercises are less known than some others and can be somewhat complicated, I trust that all of you should have no issues following the instructions.

All in all, we think that everyone should exercise for at least a little bit every day to keep themselves fit and healthy. It’s your personal choice, whether it will last 2 hours or 20 minutes. You decide on everything, we’re here to provide you with specific pointers that will ease everything.

Simple Exercises You Can Do While Traveling

One last thing – if you need some help with concentration or focus when it comes to exercising, or even help with falling asleep, check out Peak Nootropics. There’s a wide variety of nootropics with various properties that will help you with any issues that you might have regarding cognitive ability.

Here are some simple exercises that you can do when traveling.


Plank Press into mountain climbers

This is a relatively straightforward exercise, but you do need some extra space around you since there are movements that require space. Set yourself up in a push-up position and start with a basic plank. Be sure to straighten your head, toes, and back, so there’s a straight line from the head to the toes. The pelvis needs to be tucked, neck, and spine neutral. Relax your shoulders and keep them away from your neck. Bend your elbows and lift (reach with) your knee towards the angle, which is on the same side. Repeat on the other side. Ten touches should be enough per side with quick switches.

Prisoner backward lunge

This exercise is perfect for strengthening your legs. Start by standing tall in the ideal posture. Place your hands behind your head and pull your shoulders and elbows back. With one leg, step backward into a lunge position. Bend the front leg knee and put your back leg knee above the ground slightly. Return to the original post by pushing with your front leg. Repeat on the other side as well. This exercise doesn’t have a limit on how many times you should do it, but remember not to overdo it.

Seated crunch twists

These twists will help develop your abs. Sit on a flat-surfaced bench. You’ll need a great balance as well. Slowly and slightly lean back while lifting your legs off the ground. Once your legs are bent, position your arms on one side while straightening them. Rotate from side to side. It’s essential to keep your arms straight. If possible, touch the bench with your hands.

Star jump

This exercise is known to almost all people due to it being used in PE quite often. Start by being in a relaxed stance. Your feet must be shoulder-width apart from one another. Hold your arms close to your body. Squat down and jump up as high as you can. While in the air, extend your body by spreading your legs and arms. Once you land back on the ground, bring your arms and legs back in and absorb the force through your legs.

Pike Push-up

One of the most challenging exercises on this list, the pike push-up will strengthen your shoulders and chest. Start by being in a push-up position on the floor. Keep your arms straight and your hands shoulder-width apart. Place your body in an upside-down V by lifting your hips. The arms and legs need to stay straight. Bend the elbows while lowering your upper body up to the point where your head almost touches the floor. Pause for a short time and push up so your arms are straight again. Repeat.

Seated heart circles

While this exercise isn’t directly related to physical well-being, it’s still crucial in improving yourself. Sit on the floor, cross your legs, and place your hands on your knees. Take a couple of small breaths. Lengthen your spine. Lean-to the left, then to the front, then to the right, and finished by leaning backward. While leaning forward, straighten the spine and while leaning back, relax it and let it curve. Relax the neck and let the head follow the movement of the body. Breathe slowly while doing this and repeat around 6-8 times. Switch how your legs are crossed and circle in the other direction.

Born and raised in Gorkha, Nepal, I am proud to call the Manaslu region my home! I have been in the travel business for over a decade from being assistance guide, leader, to being a manager. And finally today I am the founder of NEST Adventure. So you could say I know my way well enough in the Himalayas, especially in some of the off-the-beaten-trails in Nepal like Manaslu, Kanchenjunga and Mustang!

I am passionate about travelling and I strongly believe that seeing the world shouldn't break the bank (at least not too much!). I have backpacked to over 15 countries in Asia, Central America, USA, Canada, one-third of Europe, the Caribbean Islands, and Latin America.

I studied in the UK and moved to the United States. During that period, I had the opportunity of working with multinational companies which taught me how to deliver quality customer service in the business. As a world travelling backpacker myself, and travel expert for the Nepalese Himalayas, I started writing about my own country. Which I would love to share with you. In case you required free information about Nepal or join a group with our existing departure, (particularly If you are a solo hiker for the restricted area) please do not hesitate to visit my office in Thamel. We are located in the centre of Kathmandu called Thamel. I am happy to share a cup of Nepali tea and free information.

Our team at NEST has earned 5/5 star ratings on TripAdvisor. Don't forget to visit our customer feedback page on TripAdvisor. If you believe our expert team can be helpful in planning your next trip to Nepal, then please do not hesitate to contact me at I am also available 24x7 on WhatsApp  +977- 9851052042.
