When I travel and know I will not have access/time for a gym, I just bring a set of bands. You can do a lot of stuff with those.
Also, you can get along with these bodyweight movements pretty fine and you can do them almost everywhere:
- Dips (between chairs)
- Pistol squats
and with the bands you can add:
- tricep extensions
- good mornings
Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I'll be moving too fast to get a gym membership. Do you have a recommendation for bands? I have some but they don't provide nearly enough resistance.
I got mine from strengthshop.
I think they have a US website now.
Get bands in resistance #2 to 4. Should be enough.
However, to keep balance the bar always needs to be directly above your feet otherwise you will tip over
Therefore, given the relative length of your torso and femurs, the only option to get your back more erect is to make your knees go forwards more
I have this exact problem. Putting plates under your heels helps a bit. You can work on ankle dorsiflexion but who could be fucked.
I guess the last one looked really awkward with the wink.
In the earlier ones, you can see that your hips and your shoulders are moving differently when you should just be driving with your legs coming out of the hole. I think your upper back needs to be tighter, so bring your elbows in under the bar a bit more.
Ignore what I said. lol.
