    Hey guys,
    Sorry to bother, but from about next week till Mid feb (possibly later) I'm going to be out of a gym because I'm OS working at a ski resort and its unlikely I'll be able to use the hotel "fitness centre" due to my status as a employee (the hotel is like 4-5*) What am I realistically going to lose in strength and size?
    I'm 5'9 170-175 - 10%, ~290/260/~330 (Dont hate, I only started legs a few months back :run:)

    I follow a 5 day routine:
    Mon:Chest, Tri
    Tues:Back, Bi
    Wed: Delts, Legs
    Thurs: Chest, Tri
    Fri:Back, Bi
    Repeat

    I'll be doing cardio each day - board/ski, so what am I looking at? I'm thinking around 205/185/275 for reps(5) and maybe lose a bit of LBM, 5lbs?

    But I'll be busting my ass to get in their "fitness centre" even if its just for maintenance.

    Thanks,

    :mamoru: I'm not really into that shit, but I think I'm going to use the "gym" in the hotel regardless, I'm looking at serious weight/strength gain next year and losing alot at the start of the year won't help, even with muscle memory.
    Thanks of the input :wavey:

    Well I'm about 2.5 months into a forced break (theres no reason for you to break, thug workouts or something) - and I can tell you that for sure I've lost size. People are commenting that I look smaller, and it sucks. Strengthwise for sure I'm down. I don't really have a reference point because I can't go to the gym and test it...

    not much..

    keep up the calories and protein intake..

    do some bodyweight stuff in your room 4 days a week..

    or get a backpack and some plates frmo wal-mart and fill up the backpack... you can do squats, light overhead presses, curls, tricep extensions.. backpacks have straps and handles that make 'em pretty versatile.. just wrap the weights in a towel so they arent jumping around in your bag and falling all over the place.

    you can do the pushups with the bag on your back, too.. etc etc.

    PS - a set of bands and blast straps would go a LONG ways in a situation like yours. portable gym > no gym.

    :cool: Except I'm going to Japan and speak little Jap so I dunno how to go about acquiring such goods. :mamoru: Other hobbies besides lifting ftmfl.

    My Diet should be in check... I think? Any Idea on what a typical Jap meal consists of?.. All I know is that there is like no quality 500g-1kg steaks. :hsd:

    You'll have a very nice and large selection of fish to choose from. To a little homework on the nutrition of them, and I'm sure you'll be eating GREAT.

    How did you end up getting the a ski resort job in Japan?


    In terms of size and strength, the best thing you can do is keep your diet in check...high protien intake and make sure you are eating at your maintanence. Also, you cant go wrong with pullups/pusups/crunches. I would also recomend buying a set of adjustable dumbells so you can workout where ever you are living.

    Sashimi ftw !
    You'll be able to get plenty of protein from fish so you'll be fine.

    Some company here is Aust. was looking for resort staff, signed up and got accepted they had lots of jobs on offer from lift opertator to ski instructor, I took the latter. The USA should have similar companies doing this, if not you could setup a company and make DAMN good money, I'm only getting paid $AU1400 a month but everything is provided still my wage sucks and the company would be making big bucks. - Sorry for the OT.

    Thanks for the tips guys!:wavey:
