What do you do when you gym is closed?

Friday, February 25, 2011

I'm stuck. The gym at work is closed because of an electrical smoke smell in the building. Wouldn't be a huge issue but all my gym clothes and shoes are down there too. I guess I'll end up going for a stroll around the parking lot or maybe go down later this afternoon.

    Sorry that I am late to the party, so it may no longer be an issue, but a suggestion for a quick, effective work out when you can't get to the gym:

Rounds of Sprawls (like burppies, but sprawl as you would in wrestling if someone shot in for a double leg and get up as fast as you can) and jump squats. I do 3 minute rounds with one minute rest. This is a great substitute workout or as a torture session after strength training.

Good luck with your training situation

    Yeah Pam, and running barefoot in winter in parking lots is not real bright. Don't listen to her, Tim. But do go buy more than one set of workout gear. Dang!
