We all hit the road now and then, and sometimes quite frequently. Once you’ve been training regularly you realize how much it sucks to get back into training after an extended abscence – you’re sore for longer, you have less energy during the workout and worst of all you procrastinate getting back into it because you know how much it’s gonna hurt.

To help you keep a bit of your edge here are some workout examples that you can do on easily when on vacation, travelling for work or up at the cottage with little to no equipment.  Most of them only require a stopwatch, your body, and the motivation to kick your own ass!

Remember: all of these workouts have a TIME component to them.
