Getting fit for your MultiSport Vacations doesn't have to be time consuming. If you don't have time to hit the trails wearing a 50 pound pack or bike and paddle as often as you need/want to, then all you need to do is include the best exercises for your activities in your weekly workouts.

If you'll be spending hours on a bike, hiking with a heavy pack, and/or paddling the most important exercises are those that strengthen your upper and lower back, core, and glutes. Be sure to includes all the ones listed below as well as some type of mobility and flexibility exercises too (more on flexibility and injury prevention coming soon).

Best Strength Exercises

Single leg squat from high bench
Dumbbell or medicine ball saggital reach
Inverted Pushups
Suspension trainer letter drills (T Y W)
Suspension trainer inverted rows and power pulls
Mini-band lateral walks

Best Core & Balance Exercises

Stability ball back extensions
Stability ball alternating single leg planks
Valslide pikes, mountain climbers, and saw
Heel walks
Dumbbell Calf Raises

Best Endurance Exercises

Sprinting workouts (great for cardio endurance)
Jump rope workouts (awesome for calves and ankle strength)
Bodyweight interval training (great for muscular endurance)
