going on vacation need workout ideas

i'm going on vacation in the next few weeks and will be away from the gym. i am going to bring running shoes, jump rope, 55 lb kettlebell, hopefully a make shift pull up bar and plyo box somewhere, i would like to get in 3 workouts but i'm terrible at coming up with them, i just end up doing the same things over and over.

any help is appreciated.

Re: going on vacation need workout ideas

Websters defines vacation as a scheduled period during which activity is suspended. I say you take your vacation and enjoy the time off.

yeah i know, i thought about just kicking back but i'm just looking at maybe 3 days, 10-15 minutes a day, nothing crazy. i'm in the middle of a strength program so i'm already getting anxiety about stopping for a week in the middle of adding weight to the bar, the last thing i want to do is just loaf on the beach with cocktails and get weak (there will still be plenty of loafing and cocktails though).

thanks for the suggestions, this helps a lot, i am terrible at programming.

Re: going on vacation need workout ideas

For me when I go on vacation, I either take the time off from training or use the opportunity to do something I typically don't. Sometimes, I'll go to a globo for the guess pass fee and do more of a typical bodybuilding workout. When I've been to the beach, I'll do some body weight stuff in the sand and ocean--sprints in the sand can be pretty brutal.

If you don't run a lot, maybe you should get some of those in. Or take the time to do a WOD in water or a big hike.

But, I'd highly suggest doing something you typically don't. You can always go home and do most typical WODs.

Where are you headed?

Hey Michael:

Do what we did. Leave your equipment at home, and find a box you can workout at where you are vacationing.

Re: going on vacation need workout ideas

Here are a few quick under 30 minutes you can do

15 minutes, 30 seconds kettlebell swings, 30 seconds jumping rope repeat on the top of each minute. Rest 3:00, Do 2:00 of burpees

20 rounds, 5 L, 5R kettlebell snatch start at the top of each minute

Jump rope for 20 minutes total. Rest as needed until you finish.

10 sets of 10 kettlebell swings, ladder burpees up to 10
So it would look like 10 swings 1 burpee, 10 swings 2 burpees, etc.

Finally 10 sets start new set at the top of 3rd minute.
5 burpees
5 snatches, L, R
15 Mountain Climbers
20 Swings
