newbzlift is off to a bad start
Default traveling

Next week, I will be traveling for a few weeks. I am not sure if my hotels will have a gym or not. If they do not, what do you recommend to train my muscles? I would just take a few weeks off but then I worry that once I try to get back into a routine, I will not want to do it.

i have no clue about your goals or your body, but here's a generic list of things you could do:

pushups 5 sets to failure

air squats (squats with no weight) 5 sets to failure

crunches 5 sets to failure

pullups/chin ups 5 sets to failure (if you have access to a bar)


you can superset any or all of these for added aerobic effect.

I recco doing what Tank has suggested, using a no-rest style for the extra cardio benefit. You could also do planks for core...so try doing one set of each excersise to failure, rest 60 seconds, then do it all again, and again, and again, etc...repeat until you're beat down and unable to hit one rep for any of them..

Personally, I would try to find local gyms and do whatever took my fancy. But I wouldn't sweat it if I couldn't find one. There's more to life than lifting.

I agree that a one day pass at a gym could do you good. I would personally try this.

Burpees! No equipment required and not much space either. If you can spend 10 minutes doing them every day you will be off to a good start.

You can also make a cheap disposable weight by buying one or more of the largest water container you can find, drinking the water, and then filling it up with water or other stuff (depending whats convenient/acceptable where you're staying).

Alternatively if you are going to be staying near the coast, take a strong canvas holdall type bag and fill it up with sand to make a sandbag. With such implements you can do Cleans/Presses/Snatches & Overhead squats at minimal cost. Also you will be the envy of all the other hotel guests*

I used these + bodyweight circuits when I was backpacking for several months and it worked out well, I felt good and stayed healthy and motivated.
