    Going home for 17 days and won't have a gym membership. Need a body weight routine in the mean time. Ideas?

    Do a lot of pushups and sit ups. Drop in at a local gym, you can usually go for a 1-day "trial evaluation" or whatever.
    Or just pay the $10 fee and do a full body routine once both weeks.

    anything you lose in 17 days will come back in a week or two as long as you eat right. I'd just use it as a break :dunno:

    just buy a 1 month membership.

    its 17 days.

    don't be cheap... if staying in shape and getting strong matters to you, you'll eat the 13 days of the month you won't get your moneys worth from.

    I'd wager alot that says you are much less stingy when it comes to a friday night bar tab. Get your priorities in shape!

    I woudn't mind hearing more on the subject
    I will be going to Taiwan for 9 days and there are no gyms where my country folk relatives are. Going to farm country and I was planning on eating well and taking a break so I have been training everyday for the last 2 months or so knowing that I got a break coming soon.

    Backpack + textbooks = any exercise u want.

    Squats, pushups, pullups (assuming u have some sort of pull up bar), rows, curls, dips, raises, etc. etc.

    Put it in your lap if you're doing it on a bench.
    Put it on your back if you're doing it on handles.

    take a break or work on your cardo or do a ton of pushups/pulls etc.
    I saw my biggest strength jump recently when I added cardio to the mix. sometimes changes are good, even if it doesn't make sense.
