Get Fit With Water Bottles
Stuck on vacation or work trip without a gym?
Your workout plan doesn’t have to be limited to runs and squats.
Instead, grab a few water bottles and get fit in the comfort of your hotel room with these exercises from fitness trainer Scott Herman.
2 Exercises You Can Do With Water Bottles
Grab 2 water bottles (the bigger and heavier, the harder the workout), find some free space, and get started on these 2 exercises. Aim for 12-15 reps of each exercise.
Bottle Fly & Press
Work on building sexy shoulders with this unique combo. Stand holding a water bottle in each hand with your arms hanging by your sides. With a slight bend in your elbows, lift both arms out to your side until they’re at a 90-degree angle, parallel with the ground and you look like the letter “T.” Then bend your elbows, lifting your hands until they form another 90-degree angle. Now it is time to carve those shoulders! Press the bottles all the way up until your arms are completely straight overhead. Lower both bottles back to the starting positon and repeat.
Tone and tighten those glutes by finding the biggest water jug you can handle. Now hold that jug as tight as you can in the front of your body. Standing with your feet about shoulder width apart, lower yourself as if you’re about to sit onto the ground behind you. As your hips reach your ankles, push through your heels to return to the starting position and repeat. If this is too hard on your knees, only go as low as you can without discomfort.
