    Hotel Workout Challenge

    Thought this might be fun and a bit productive too, yea?

    Here’s the challenge: yer on the road with just hotel gym amenities to work with. Ye need to design a workout targeting the stated muscle group with just the tools at yer disposal - no fair just stating “Find a better gym”.

    Ye hafta describe the tools in yer gym with adequate detail that someone can incorporate them into their proposed workout.

    I’ll start.

    Muscles Targeted: quad dominant legs.

    Tools:
    * Two benches, each capable of inclining to nearly 90 degrees
    * Rubber hex head dumbbells up to 50 lbs
    * A standard cable station with two height-adjustable pulleys and pin loaded plates up to 130 lbs
    * A recumbent bike
    * An elliptical machine

    lol...I can't help...when I was in Hawaii I went to the hotel gym and it just about killed me as I felt like it was the first day I trained due to having nothing to really work with!

    Interested on what others will say

    'Cause now it's time to let them know....We are ready, what about us?"

    Game on
    Dumbbell pistol squats / sissy squats 4x8-12. If you can get both 50s and do it, good for you. Otherwise, one will have to suffice. Focus on long negatives and holding at the bottom, along with ass to grass.

    Dumbell Stiff Leg Deadlifts: 3x10-15

    One legged dumbell squats with leg on bench: 3x10-15

    Walking dumbell Lunges: 3x10-15 / amrap

    Hamstring curls with the cable: 3x10-15

    Put the bike on max resistance and pedal it out for 15-30 minutes


    This is just what I could come up with at work. If you were to do this workout, you'd really need to focus on having long lasting reps with explosive concentric phases and long, slow eccentric phases of each lift.

    I totally agree. The last thing I think of at a hotel is the gym.

    Don't stay in the hot tub too long tho. I made that mistake the night before my powerlifting meet. Wife rode me in there for atleast a half hour and I felt like I was gonna pass out when we got done. Lol. Blood pressure was probably thru the roof and dehydrated like a motherfukker. Lesson learned
