9 exercises while waiting for your flight
1. Keep walking
Ask your traveling companion to walk along the moving walkway while you try to keep up the same pace beside it.
2. Elevator exercise
The elevator is the perfect place to do some squats.
3. While waiting
Waiting to collect your baggage? Great! Do some squat jumps while waiting for it to arrive.
4. Seat yourself
It’s often hard to find a seat in the departure gate area. So just be your own seat. Find a wall, sit against it with your knees bent at 90 degrees and feel the burn.
5. Distant gateways
Usually, the departure gate you need is the one that’s the farthest away. Lucky you! Do five split squats between the gates you pass on the way.
6. Work your biceps
The line at security control is the perfect time to grab your partner’s carry-on along with your own and shape your biceps. Simply hold the bags straight in front of you and pull them up and down towards you.
7. Upwards and onwards
Use stairs and not escalators.
8. Baggage train
Put all your traveling companion’s bags on your trolley to make it extra heavy. A full body workout!
9. Round and round
If you’re out in good time and have excess energy, you can get rid of some it by taking a couple of extra rounds in the revolving doors at the airport entrance.
