It isn’t always easy to get in your daily workouts when you’re on the road. Yahoo Travel is asking some of our favorite trainers around the globe to recommend workouts you can do quickly and easily right in your hotel room. This week we chatted with Layla Luciano, trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp.
1. One-Legged Squats With Curl

What do you need? A sturdy desk chair and two full water bottles
With a full water bottle in each hand, stand with feet hips width apart and arms straight out in front of you at shoulder height. Bring the right foot back so the toe is on the edge of the desk chair and the leg is slightly bent. Keeping the right foot in the same position, deeply bend the standing (or left) leg, making sure the knee does not jut out farther than the toes on the standing leg. As you bend the leg, curl both hands in toward your chest, keeping elbows at shoulder height. Straighten out the arms as you straighten the standing leg. Continue for 20 reps on each side, continuing to deepen your squat with each rep. Then double-time it for another 20 reps on each side to increase your heart rate.
