What if their dumbbells only go up to 80 lbs or they’re missing a squat rack, then what? Focus on maximizing tension with the lighter weight as to fail within a rep range. With the different cadences you’ll maximize the tension in the muscle to the point where you’ll use much lighter weights yet still fail at the rep count you’re aiming for.2. When you’re lifting, don’t try and reach the rep count, try and fail as quickly as possible.Do this by as much tension in the muscle as you can, by flexing while lifting, by squeezing the muscle at the top of the rep, by pushing your hands outward or inward on the bar during a bench press, for example.In short, let your surroundings dictate your training.Your gym, not your goals, will dictate your mode of training.Focus on the muscle throughout the exercise and try to fail as quickly as possible.Then, let the reps and sets dictate the weight you choose. Do two giant sets that are set up like the following workouts.This will drop the weights you’re lifting , while increasing the amount of tension you’re creating in the muscle. You can plug in the exercises as you like, depending on what equipment you have available and what muscle you’re working on. This way you can really burn out a muscle with the lighter weights, enabling it to fully recover, before hitting it again.
Sprints are a great option if you’re near a hill or a track.
Last week I was out in the mountains of northern Italy, no gym, no weights, just a soccer field in one of the villages nearby where I’d get up to 4 times a week to train.
The thing about the country is that your “fitness” is tested everywhere. If you don’t workout at all during the week in the conventional sense of working out and instead hike and climb and run and swim, then take that opportunity to enjoy your surroundings while staying healthy.
