My client had taken these photos and sent them to me. He was staying there of a couple of days.

Since we are going to work out the lower body later in the week. We need to come up with a good 1 hour, upper body workout with the items we have. So here is the workout I gave him. Try it yourself and leave a comment as to what you think.

Looks like we have the following workout equipment to choose from;

  • Elliptical
  • Bike
  • Treadmill
  • Bench
  • Med balls
  • Dumbbells up to 50 lbs.

The Upper Body Hotel Gym Work Out

10 minutes on the elliptical (I usually have people do 5 minutes on a bike or rower at SOLDIERFIT but since he was traveling and he was sitting all day, we added a bit more time for cardio)

Alternate Dumbbell Flat bench press 3 x 10 (10 each arm. So both arms are straight up and press one Dumbbell at a time while the other arm is stationary. Alternate back and forth)

 

Bent over Dumbbell flyes 3 x 15

Dead stop lat raises 3  x 12 ( sitting on bench with so hands fall on bench, then raise it back up. Use 5 to 10 pounds. No need for heavy weights)

Alternate hand push up on med ball 3 x 6 (6 on each hand. So you have one hand on the med ball, the other on the floor and do a push up)

Bicep blaster curls 3 sets (5 x 5 with 5 sec hold after 5 reps)

The bicep blaster curls leaves you with a good pump after to impress your coworkers or potential clients how Gangster you are!
