Travelling Work Outs!

I need a portable work-out!

The next part of my course I'm going to be on placement (living in different accomodation 5 nights a week), Fri, Sat & Sunday nights in my normal abode.

This to and fro-ing (on public transport as I don't have a car ) is really going to intefere with my work outs!!

Normally I like to work out in the privacy of my own room with my exercise bike and weights. Since I can't transport any of these items easily on the train I've got to find alternative ways to work out.

I was looking into pilates resistance bands to replace the dumbells and leg weights although I don't know enough exercises and not sure if these will continue to tone me up as effectively as weights

As for cardio, I obviously can't take my bike with me! Problem is, I like working out in private.. I'm not sure how else to get my cardio work out, without facing the public or without taking my bike (not possible).

Thanks so much in advance, very appreciative of any answers
Hope everyone's weight watching is going well!

Check out fitdecks - http://www.fitdeck.com/

They have several that require no equipment at all, and they are always different so you don't get bored. I own 3 that I mix and match: bodyweight, core blast, and cross train.

You can also use a deck of cards to create a body weight workout.

do you bring your computer? or will wherever you're staying have a tv/dvd?

cause fitness videos don't take up much room and are private.

Thank you, that's a good idea. I do work out in front of a DVD though to make it less boring! Maybe since I wont' have any weights or a bike I should force myself to do them!

it's not as good as watching tv, but normally i mute the dvd (cause exercise music is second only to porn music for sheer awfulness), and blast my own music/crank up the ipod :)

i guess it'd be hard for the dvds that are more technically difficult, where you need to hear the instructions, but that's why i like the easy, for-uncoordinated-people ones :)

calisthenics are an option too. bring a jump rope, do some jumping jacks, push-ups, crunches, etc. your body is really all the resistance you need :)

Google "weight-less workouts"; lots of ideas -- I'm looking through them since I will be traveling a lot later in the spring.
