    Default Hotel Room Workout

    IMG_1619.jpgA few weeks ago, my son and I were on a family fishing trip in Miami. It was Saturday afternoon and we needed to train, so we went down to the hotel gym and saw it loaded with treadmills, small dumbbells and a cable machine. We looked at each other & decided to head back to the room to do a bodyweight workout.
    The first group of exercises included Bridges, Handstand Push-ups and Squats. We performed 5 sets of various repetitions. The next group included Split Squats, Dips and Abdominals. We also mixed in several variations of push-ups.
    It was a great workout and it was completed in the room. The movements are based on exercises from Paul Wade's Convict Conditioning book. Another little piece of equipment to bring with you is a jump rope. There are many times I intersperse bodyweight exercises with rounds of jumping rope.
    When you are traveling, there is no reason not to train!

    Cool story. There's also partner-assisted workouts for weight (Systema has good stuff like that, but I'm not too familiar with it yet). Sometimes it's just the partner's weight (running with someone on your back, on your shoulders, carrying them, etc...) sometimes it's against their tension (trying to wrestle each other's hands, like a game of mercy), sometimes they hold something up while you're doing calisthenics on it (holding a chain while you "walk" up & down it it with your hands).

    Yes - there's a bunch of partner drills that I leaned from wrestling and that we do in BJJ. However. the hotel room was a little tight to be running back and forth! :-)
    I have a video coming out with both solo and partner Dynamic Tension training. It will be part of my Kettlebell Workout Library. Dynamic Tension has become a lost art - however there are a few diehards bringing it back!
