Living the jet setting lifestyle is your job now. Wherever you go, how do you stay in shape?
I was an athlete growing up. I played soccer and hockey. That’s exactly who I am. When I’m traveling I always have to find a way to do that, which is interesting especially with Covid. Find a log in the woods and use it for your back to squat. Jumping rope is a great cardio exercise, so I always have a jump rope with me when I travel. It’s great to be able to combine jump squats and push-ups with his circuit training and his 4 minute jump rope. You are going to attack every part of your body.
What does your ideal jump rope workout look like?
Here’s a breakdown of the jump rope training I do while traveling, hiking in the woods, camping, etc.
[I do] Jump rope for a total of 20 minutes. Do 5 sets of 4 minute rounds. After each round, I start doing bodyweight exercises. For those 4 minute rounds, I like listening to good tunes on my headphones. Something I can find a beat for. A good rhythm helps your rope skills.
Continue jumping on one leg, counting to 10 on each leg, then starting at 10 and undone on each leg. Then 20 on both feet. Alternate feet for a count of 20. Then do a double bounce jump, alternating legs for a count of 20. Then alternate heels for a count of 20. Then alternate heels for a count of 20. Then some crossovers follow. , left to right, right to left. Next, cross your legs into high knees for 15 to 20 seconds. I usually pass out at this point, but I fight the count up and down to 5 single leg jumps until I reach 4 minutes, I always spend his final 15 seconds on high knees and double jumps on my fast legs Burn.
Bodyweight exercises between jump ropes include push-ups, jump squats, wide-grip lat pull-ups, bicep pull-ups, triceps extensions, shoulder raises, mountain climbers, V-up twists, crunches, and planks.
Do a total of 5 ropes plus bodyweight circuits. This typically takes about 45 minutes total. Oh no big break. Going from one move to the next, at the end of the circuit he rests for 1 minute and 30 seconds. This way, you can do cardio while still attacking your muscles.
We know how to exercise while camping, but what about airport fitness?

And what is your scariest exercise?
oh my god. all right. There is a machine called react machine. When I do it, I want to freeze my legs. But I love to tire myself out and work it out in the gym, so I love doing it.
And what about your diet? what does it look like?
I’m terrible when it comes to my diet. I should probably have one. Exercise so you can eat and drink whatever you want. But as I get older, I try to become more aware of how my body feels and start eating more heart-healthy. When I was in the best shape of my life, I ate high protein, low carb and low fat. But if you’ve got bigger portions and healthy snacks in between, I believe it’s a recipe to be ripped off. People who want results need to disconnect from their lifestyle.
