So the time comes when you’re training schedule gets thrown off a bit. Life gets in the way. You need to get a workout in with no equipment. No bands, suspension straps, or car gyms.

You have 2 options. Skip the session and get one in tomorrow, or FIND A WAY.

I’m here to tell you that even though you can’t get to the gym, or the gym you have access to sucks, you can still do something.

No you might not be setting PRs that session, and yes you might have to think outside the box to still make it intense enough where it’s worth your time…

But sometimes it’s not about the PR or about that perfect workout.

Sometimes it’s about keeping the streak alive. Sometimes is about showing your kids that when things don’t go according to plan, you still make an effort to do your best. Sometimes its to show yourself that you will rise to the occasion when no one is there to cheer you on.

Sometimes you have to do it alone, and find an opportunity.

You hear me say it all the time. What we do in the gym reflects who we are in real life. If you take the easy way out with the iron, you probably take the easy way out with other tough shit.

This is no different. Want to find out how to get a sick workout in no matter what equipment you have access to? Watch this video.

Video Summary:

In this video I go over how you can use a deck of cards to get a solid workout in no matter where you are or what equipment you have access to.

[1] Define what each of the 4 suits represents. You can choose any exercises you like. Bodyweight, dumbbell movements, band work, etc. I would focus on 1 leg movement (squats, lunges, etc), 1 upper pull (rows, pullups, etc), 1 upper body push (pushups, bench presses, overhead presses), and one core exercise (crunches, russian twists, etc)

[2] Shuffle the cards and start flipping. Do the number of reps of whatever suit/exercise it is. Face cards are whatever you want (I usually do 12 or 15), jokers are 15 or 20.

[3] Crush the workout.

This workout is tougher than you think…and the tougher the exercise (i.e. pull ups vs band rows), the harder the session will be over all. Good luck.
