    With the summer holidays approaching, what ideas has the MAP massif got for an exercise routine that can be done in the confines of a hotel room (i.e. a very small room, with people in the room below who won’t appreciate someone jumping on their ceiling :) )?

    Hindu squats and push ups.

    Aim for twice as many squats as push ups.

    This isn't the best tutorial, but you can do your own search.

    Depends what are you actually looking to do, get stronger, work your energy systems or just get a pump?
    Without knowing your goal it's a bit like peeing into the wind lol

    In periodisation terms, I’m currently in general preparation with aerobic base and hypertrophy. However, I’m wondering whether hotel time might be a low intensity or recovery exercise time.

    Huh, when I stay in a hotel I bring my jump-rope... I never really thought about the people below me as the floors seemed pretty solid most of the time, and I'm usually exercising at times people wouldn't be sleeping.

    But basically: jump-rope, body weight exercise, and shadow boxing.

    Tempo intervals using burpees, running in place, mountain climbers or wall runs might be an idea with pushups, rows between as active recovery.

    30mins of the above would work both aerobic base and upper body hypertrophy and help with recovery.
    Tempo intervals are a nice way to build your base without affecting your other training

    Mushroom De-powered to come back better than before.

    On the spot running, jumping squats, burpees, star jumps, standing tuck jumps.
    Front/back flip attempts.

    Oh wait. Did you say "to annoy your neighbours" or "not to annoy? "

    Go to the hotel gym.

    Take a oly bar. 4x 25kg plates, back to your hotel room... Deadlift for reps and/or
    Practice your clean and jerk.

    Prison workout.
    Stand on one side of the room. Do 20 burpees.
    Walk to the other side of the room. Do 19 burpees.
    Walk back. Do 18.
    Walk = 17.
    Walk = 16.
    Repeat until you reach zero or are exhausted. Start with 10 if 20 is too many but 20 is the mark of a being a real bad dude.

    There are two other parts to this video which can be found very easily on YouTube.

    Can't beat the classic calisthenics: pushup, situp, squat, burpee, shuttle runs.
    Like others put here, do sets of those at a moderate intensity.
    I always thought prison workout was run to the nearest corner and hide.

    An oldie but a goodie 5X Canadian Air Force Officer's training program.

    Designed to be done in a relatively small area. Might need a bit of fine tuning but even as it sits it's still a nice easy program to follow.

    Did this in my 20's for a quick work out. I've linked a nice little site that has both the 5BX, the women's version 10BX and a nice little section on yoga training for over 50's.

    Hope that this is ok
