It’s likely that your hotel gym or room won’t have the necessary poundage to allow you to smash personal bests. Therefore – try and take the time off and deload. If you are like most lifters, you wait for life to tell you to deload and you could probably do with a week or two off. Regardless of what people tell you, you won’t become catabolic and shrink to the size of a pre-pubescent boy (or girl). In fact, you’ll probably come back stronger and more determined post- holiday.
By selecting 4 compound exercises (that either target all the same muscle or a plethora of different ones), a rep scheme, and a time limit. Density circuits work great when you only have body weight to work with. For example:
- Bodyweight Squats x 30
- Push ups x 20
- Elevated Hip Raises x 10
- Mountain Climbers x 40
Repeat as many times as possible in 10 minutes- resting as necessary.
