workouts on the road

wife and i being doing the following to try and maintain some level of fitness on the road. takes about 20 minutes, and can be done just about anywhere

20 jumping jacks
10 push ups
10 crunches
20 jj
10 wide push ups
10 left right crunches
20 jj
10 tricep push ups
10 leg lifts

do five sets. at some point i end up on my knees doing the pushups...

next day
lower body
20 jj
20 squats
10 crunches
20 jj
20 lunges
10 left right crunches
20 jj
20 toe raises
10 leg lifts.

again, five sets..

i've come to the conclusion that the only reason i have for not working out on the road is the same one i had at home....just plain laziness...

Why not lighten your bike and change out the starter for a kickstart ?

My exercise regime [after riding]
Fill pint tankard with ale ,raise to lips with right hand and arm in one smooth movement ,when tankard is empty then repeat with left arm and so on .
It is essential to exercise both arms equally ,after 3 or 4 tankards the legs will need exercicising too and a short walk will usually suffice .
After about 6 pints spontaneous bursts of singing will give the facial muscles and larynx a good work out .

But don't overdo it ,or you may become quite light headed .

that's the point

guys, guys, guys....

that's the whole point of doing the workouts. after a long day of getting, dragging the bike through god knows what, we drown our sorrows in a few pints and still have enough energy left for noctornal activities...

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
