The one thing with those "portable" CF workouts is there are a lot with pull-ups. Most hotel rooms don't have a pull-up bar and they tend to get a bit upset if you break the wardrobe rack or the shower rail. :P

Good suggestions all .. I really like Larry L's version of stair running and BW exercises. While traveling, I have used all the standard BW routines push ups, burpees, sit ups, air squats, pistols. I have also done box jumps on coffee tables (you'd be surprised how sturdy some of the hotel furniture is).

I would also add a plug for all the CrossFit affiliates. Check to see if there is one anywhere near where you are going .. you'll meet the nicest people.

Have fun.

I second the use of the stairwells. Figure out how many pushups you need to do, and divide by how many floors you need to climb...

Even a lousy hotel gym may have dumbbells. Try a countdown ladder of man-makers and situps.

Of course if you're at the Milwaukee Hilton you're out of luck, because they keep the dumbbells in the one part of the room where a tall person can't lift them overhead without punching out ceiling tiles. Worst "gym" I've ever seen.

Find a local park and do pullups on the monkey bars or soccer goalposts.

Find a Walmart and invest in a basketball, a 30# bag of playsand, and some epoxy. I cut a slit in the ball, use a half of a waterbattle as a funnel and pack that b'otch with as much sand as possible. Stuff a few plastic bags in there to fill up what's left and epoxy the hell out of it. Instant Medicine ball. Carry it up the stairs overhead, one handed. Buy a 35# db from the same walmart and do swings. I hae one sitting in my hotel rrom now. All together I paid around 30 dollars and have a gym in my room. Plus parks and local playgrounds are great.

James - You could go to a supermarket and get a giant watermelon for WallBall shots, and when you are one rep short of totally wiped out, you could do a slam. Just not in your actual hotel room!
