    Cool Help for Summer Training Program


    I will be working at a camp this summer and won't have any access to weights. I will be able to do pull ups and plyometric training/running, but I really would like to gain strength. What are some solid body weight workouts that I could do and/or practical/unique ways to go about it? Excluding Pushup variants and pullups, of course. I've done my own research, I just would like some other good opinions. Thanks guys!

    I just returned home from Army AIT and won't have access to a gym for a few more weeks so I set up some makeshift equipment. I do situps and crunches with a cement block I found, stand on my head against a wall and do presses, shrugs with tires, and different types of pushups with a backpack full of stuff, and dips on a dining room chair.

    No joke, when I counseled last year we had a game where the kids had to carry the other kids a ways and across the line...counselors had to do it, too. That was a good workout, but only lasted 2 weeks.

    When I was in high school my football coach would have contests sometimes where we would have relay races while carrying a teammate. It was fun but intense.
