Summer Escape: The Cabin Travel Workout

“I got a Cabin Fever! And the only prescription…is more…WORKOUTS!”

Ok. Maybe that’s not what Bruce Dickenson wanted, but besides the cowbell, if you have cabin fever you may need some good activity!


This Cabin Workout can be done anywhere (not just cabins). It’s ALL bodyweight, and can be as intense as you make it. It will consist of a warm-up and 4 rounds of work. Each round should be done with proper form and good consistent movement. This is not a race! Focus on contracting the muscles completing each and every rep.

This workout will hit everything but your back. So expect your shoulders, chest, abs, and legs to feel it in the morning. Keep in mind, we’re super setting every exercise, so you’ll also get a great cardio workout. Now get ready to break a sweat!


  • 45 seconds of jogging in place
  • 45 seconds of butt kicks
  • 45 seconds of torso rotation
  • 45 seconds of lunges
  • 45 seconds of assisted pushups

Cabin Workout

Take a 1 minute break between each round

  • 4 Rounds of  10 Reverse Lunges (10 each leg) + 30 Squats
  • 5 Rounds of Pushups (till failure) +  20 Tricep Dips

*NOTE* If you can’t complete more than 20 pushups, they should be done assisted with your knees on the ground.  For the tricep dips, use the edge of the bed and keep your legs straight for the most difficult variation, knees bent to make it easier.

  • 4 Rounds of  12 Mary Katherines + 15 Squat Jumps
  • 4 Rounds of 3 “Walk it out” Planks + :45sec-1min Plank

*NOTE* For the “walk it out” plank, walking out with your hands and returning to pushup position counts as ONE rep.  After doing three of those, hold plank position for 45sec to 1 minute. Click here for a picture.
