Lygdback uses his app to share the programs he devises for stars with the #MagnusMethod squad. Right now he’s doing a six-week “The Northman” challenge.

With Lygback’s workouts, you don’t need much – a towel, your body weight, and bands – so you can do them anywhere.

Lygdback’s tips for staying in shape when you’re traveling

  1. “Cut your workouts into half,” he said. “If you’re too ambitious, you’ll fail.”
  2. Work out three times a week
  3. “Make sure that 17 out of 20 minutes are clean and on-point, and enjoy life three out of 20.”
