It’s snowing here in Jersey. Great. Snow Day.
They’re calling for 8-12 inches, and with school closings and the roads looking exceptionally bad, I closed the gym. So now what?
You take the day off?
You down your pre-workout and you TRAIN.
Get something in no matter what equipment you have access to or how much time you have.
 It will fill in the gaps in your training. If the main source of lifting is one style of training (in my case, bodybuilding/strength training), it will help you by doing something you wouldn’t normally do.
 It will be challenging because chances are if you have to improvise, you won’t be so good at it, due to the fact that you’re out of your element.
Here’s what I did, and all you need is a dumbbell or kettlebell (which EVERYONE should have in case of emergencies like snow days). You don’t have one, I would get one or two for the next time you can’t get to the gym.
I used a 16kg kettlebell and tried to finish as quickly as possible.
