Pre-Flight Workout

Pre-Flight Workout

"I have often said that the lure of flying is the lure of beauty."
― Amelia Earheart

The specs
Before your next flight, do 1-3 sets of 10 reps of each exercise:
Rear Delt Row
Supine Row
Planche Pushup

I have a love/hate relationship with flying. On the one hand, I love seeing the wild places that I read about. Often times, the only way to see these places is to travel by air. I also enjoy the view out the plane window. It is such a unique way to see the world and allows me to really appreciate the grandness and size of the world. On the other hand, I hate sitting still for extended periods of time. I feel bad for the people that have to sit next to me. I'm constantly doing calf raises, walking the aisles, doing Squats on the way to the multiple bathroom visits due to the drinking of excessive water, and probably a few other activities to squeeze out some movement opportunities. However, I do feel much better if I am able to get in a light workout, or even just some basic movement before I get stuck sitting.

My Airbnb was FILLED with perfect monkii doors so I took full advantage. Even if you just did one round of this workout, that would still be 80 reps and you would have done more than 99% of the people sitting around you. I purposely DID NOT do any targeted core training in this workout. I did this because I wanted my core to be relatively fresh so that those muscles could help support my back. However, upon landing, be assured that I did a healthy amount of core work like any respectable monkii. Try this out before your next flight. It does not take much time at all and is a great way to do something instead of nothing.
