    I know how against this everyone is going to be, so let me explain first:
    I am going to be on the road a lot, probably more than 80% of the time. It won't be easy to make it to a gym all the time. I know Bally's and other gyms have deals where I can have access to all their gyms, which I'm looking into.

    But for now I'd like to design a routine that will get me by until I can get back to weights.

    So i was thinking
    Wide pushups
    Triangle pushups
    Regular pushups
    Squats
    Dips

    Any help would be much appreciated, or direction to links. Google was no help for me so far, but I'm probably just not searching for the correct terms.

    Yeah, I figured it would be rough to make gains. But I was hoping not to lose strength, or at least not much.

    Weights that you add water in...for some reason I didn't think of that, I'll have to look those up. Thanks. But even that, they would ahve to be pretty big weights in order to have enough space to fill them up with water so they are more than 10lbs.

    Water Weights Link: 16lbs for 1 db. that's not even worth it imo.

    Try to do full body stuff.

    Day 1:
    Wide decline pushups (emphasis is on shoulders, chest, and tri's)
    Wide grip pullups (emphasis on lats, but also posterior delts and biceps)
    Pistol squats (legs)
    Hanging leg raises (midsection, especially lower abs)

    Day 2:
    Diamond pushups or dips (mainly hits tri's)
    Close grip pull ups (mainly hits forearms and lats, some biceps and posterior delts)
    Deadlifts (you'll need some dumbells, but trust me, it's usefull to lug em around with you)
    Crunches (upper abs, do them twisting to hit some obliques)

    Day 3:
    Standard pushups
    Standard pullups
    Bodyweight squats (won't really gain much from these, but it's better than nothing)
    Situps (if you don't mind the risk of injury that many claim exists)


    You will get an okay workout from this. You won't see gains in muscle mass, but you will feel healthier and stronger, so it's a good routine if you don't care about bodybuilding or powerlifting, and it's great if you're just trying to maintain as much as possible with no equipment to work with.

    And again, adding dumbells with at least hundred pounds total is incredibly helpful in adding to your routine. THat way you can do shoulder presses, regular and front squats, deadlifts, rows, chest press, etc to hit a lot of muscles that you simply can't work hard with bodyweight stuff.
