    Default Going on vacation... no access to gym

    Anything I can do so I won't lose all my mass when I'm gone for 3 weeks? I've been bulking hard the past little while (and made decent gains) and I'd be really pissed if I lost it all (or most of it) in these few weeks. Anything I can do to retain as much of it as possible? TIA.

    Hey Playa...

    You might be surprised. If you are working out hard currently this vacation might give your body a chance to rest fully and you might actually gain some mass. That happened to me last year when I went to the US for 18 days.

    There are still many good workouts you can do without weights and a gym. Exercises I like to do include:

    - push ups
    - crunches
    - chin-up
    - calf raises
    - squats
    - tricep somethings (have your arms behind your body on a bench or something and your feet in front of you and push yourself up and down)
    - leg raises (lying down)
    - leg scissors (lying down)

    There are many more, just have a few in mind before your vacation and you'll be set. If your diet is good enough you aren't going to lose that much.
