The year was 2008.
I was on my honeymoon with my new bride on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai.
We swam, snorkeled, zip lined, kayaked, hiked, ate incredible meals … it was the trip of a lifetime!
One of the things I also did most mornings was a fifteen or twenty minute minimal equipment – type workout to start the day.
I didn’t have my kettlebells, so these workouts ended up being bodyweight-based.
It was a great way to get things going, get a little sweat on, and get the body and mind ready for the activities of the day.
Whether you are in Hawaii, or travelling somewhere else, or just busy and need a workout you can do in your living room in a short amount of time, bodyweight workouts rock.
Check out today’s workout:
