Hello, I just started Crossfit after using the Body for Life method and seeing the article in Men's Journal. Awesome program. I have yet to complete a WOD but am working up to it.

The question I had was this: I currently travel extensively and am at home only on the weekends most of the time so I have limited access to medicine balls, bench press etc... Therefore, I was mainly looking for advice on substitutions for Ball slams and wall balls as I won't have access to a medicine ball most of the time. Any ideas would be great.

Do a search using the words vacation, travel, hotel, etc. There are a ton of threads on this in the past.

As for ball slams - I don't have an adequate sub and my gym doesn't have slam balls yet. A move that is similar is the snake move in BJJ but it doesn't use weight. Wall ball could sort of be similar to the o lifts and that family of exercise.

We have a couple of Docs. on our site under "Workouts to Go" the workouts tend to need less equipment. Here is the link.
If your travel takes you out towards San Diego County, please stop in.
