Training away from home (Holiday workout)
Staying at the gf's parent's for three days, and with relatives for two or three more, generally wreaks havoc on my body. I don't care for sweets, but the holidays have lots of eggnog and delicious meats and cheeses and so on, so I tend to get soft. This year I am trying the following, crammed in before a shower and somewhere generally away from inquisitive "in-laws." My workout is generally based on my judo club's warmup, plus extra reps, so ends up being bodyweight.
Pushups - 50
Crunches - 50
Situps - 50
Judo pushups (divebombers?) - 20 or 30
Bodyweight squats - 20 or more
Calf raises off the stairs - 50 which was way too many for my wimpy calves.
Bridges - 20ish
Kata - one or more, Seisan today.
Seals - 50
Bicyclers for 30s - 1min
If I really wanted to keep in shape, I'd pack running shorts and do a half hour, and all this would be gravy. But whatever, it's the holidays and I don't usually run anyway.
Most of this is in the pursuit of getting through the class warmup easily, and keeping some level of preparation for Sturret (judo tourney in mid-Jan).
Post your holiday-not-go-flabby plans here, or make fun of mine. Merry Christmas and shalom and all that!

What Emevas said, or do burpees in your undies, in your gf's folks' living room, during holiday festivities, with a mouthfull of said meats and cheeses.

The city gym said they were open on "statutory holidays", which apparently does not include Christmas Day. I'm hoping it does include Boxing Day, in which case I'll probably just keep going with the 3x/week variation of WS4SB. Might try to get a more recent mile time for this thread... maybe not.
Edit: And yeah, there's a late-January tournament in my future too, so I need to stay within spitting distance of 100kg.

PS. My calves need stretching and I missed the judo pushups this morning in order to catch a ferry, but otherwise the plan is marching along and I feel great. None of that holiday-eating-hangover.

I've been doing a run of about 30-45 minutes (or something, I never really time it) each day. My route takes me up two flights of steep stairs, and there's a park halfway where I sometimes stop to do push-ups, sit-ups, burpees, dips, etc. I only do about 25 of each, but it's more maintenance so those things don't totally kick my ass when I go back to regular training, and it makes the second half of the run ten times harder.
A few days ago, I did this workout (minus the pull-ups, as I have neither the facilities nor the strength for it, but plus 5 rounds of skipping). It took several days of incredible pain to recover from the squats, bootstrappers and lunges, but I'm ready to do it all again tomorrow. Then I think I'll do it every second day. Not sure if I will also run on those days.

Whats your variation lookin like? You just doing one day a week for downstairs... Does that mean you are only squatting OR deadlifting (ME) once a week?
