    Hi,

    I a travel a lot for work, and most of the time far away from fitness centers (Asian remote countryside, but nobody cares about this). I just got 2 push up handles because it's light and easy to transport, but I don't know how best to use them.
    I am also wondering about the diversity of exercises (abs, pecs...) that can be done with them.
    Any tips about push handles or general traveler work out is welcome!

    (sorry if this issue has already been treated in another post)
    Thanks for your help

    All of The hotels I've stayed in have little gyms somewhere.
    They're not very impressive but they're more than you can put in a suitcase. icon_wink.gif

    you can run anywhere; resistance bands are easy to pack and are good for arms & shoulders. abs, anywhere.

    Do pistols for legs (single leg squats with the non-pressing leg extended in front) and also I find that timed workouts work really well in hotel rooms. For example, 200 push-ups in as few sets and as short of period of time as possible.

    The guy who does the ATHLEAN-X videos on youtube started doing a series called Athlean Zero, which is all body-weight exercises.

    This one is called "Upper Body Annihilator!"



    No matter where you are, you can usually find some walls, right?

    TRX Suspension System. Most of it will pack in luggage. I bring mine to cities that don't have my gym.
