Patrick looking focused during a rowing workout.

Believe it or not, it’s almost November.  We have to set our clocks back this coming weekend so it’s going to be really dark when we wake up and really dark when we get out of work.  It seems like only yesterday we were in the middle of the 90 degree summer days.  Maybe because we were, Denver weather is bananas sometimes.  

With November comes the start of the holiday season.  Many of us will be traveling to different parts to see family and friends for the holidays.  I know that when I’ve traveled in the past finding a gym or place to workout can sometimes be challenging and honestly the last thing I have time to do.  That being said there are a ton of amazing resources online that can provide Travel WODS that you can easily do with no little or no equipment.

I know just picking a number and doing that many burpees can be simple and challenging, but let’s be honest there are much more exciting and inventive ways to get your heart rate up.  We have a large volume of no equipment needed workouts in the office so if you’re heading out of town and need a few ideas on something to do for a workout, just let us know.

You can do a quick Google search and you’ll find many great resources online that provide plenty of workouts that require little to no equipment.  It is always good to have a jump rope handy and since they are easy to pack, there really is no excuse to not having one with you.  Unless of course your physical therapist and doctor tell you that you still have 4 weeks to go before you can use one,then it might be best to not pack one and give yourself the urge to see what you can do.  

The point is there really is no excuse to not get a little fitness in while you’re traveling.  One of the best things I like about CrossFit gyms is that everything is usually planned out, from the warm up to the workout to the accessory work to the cool down at the end.  When I was working out alone, if I didn’t have a plan I could spend way to long just trying to come up with something to do.  Travel WODS provide that same type of planning and convenience and can be done with just your bodyweight and the energy to get moving.  Search online or ask us for a list and we’ll be happy to give you plenty of ideas.

    Ok I’ll bite. I am stuck at the house and have a rower, med balls and kb. What sort of wod can I do here that kinda mirrors what you’ve planned for today? (nowhere to use a jump rope though) Thanks!

    • rob bell :

      seems to me…
      do “ghost” jump rope. just jump rope w/out the rope, you’ll get cardio effect, just not the eye-hand coordination of whipping the crap out of yourself (or maybe I’m the only who does that….)
      and thruster = really heavy wall-ball without letting go. so do walls balls. w/ ball or use KB and just don’t let go.

      YMMV, $.02, etc etc
