    Vacation Training Ideals


    Hi guys,
    In the middle of may I am taking a trip with a bunch of my friends to the outer banks in North Carolina. We could probably find access to a gym, but I think training on the beach would be a lot nicer and a good change of pace. I am trying to think of different ideals for effective training and so far this is what I am taking with me:
    1 set average jump stretch bands
    1 set monster Mini's bands
    1 6ft heavy netting
    1 car tow rope

    I plan on using the netting to make a harness and the tow rope to hook to the harness to pull heavy logs, kegs, etc throw the sand. The jump stretch bands I can use for a ton of different exercise like push ups, rows, squats etc. Then I was thinking since we are going to have a ton of sand there I might buy a military surplus duffel bag, 30x50 and fill it with sand which would give me a 150 pound sandbag to do snatches, heavy carries, ballistic presses.

    Sorry for the long post but anyone else have any ideas?

    Normally I would just say f*** it and just relax, but I think since I am doing a sponsored log it would be unfair to the companies if I didn't train.

    Yes the hotel we were at had a decent gym. I was maintaining just because and I partyied it up. So one week isnt going to hinder progress if you dont workout at all or just maintain. its the one week in your life to let loose and get away from the gym. Live it up..
