I don’t have access to a gym except when I travel, so I’m thrilled when there is a well-equipped one. The StayFit gyms in the Hyatts are usually great and this one was no exception. I really like using pull-up bars that aren’t hanging on a door frame. At 4:30 a.m., I started my P90X back and biceps day. For those of you who don’t know what that consists of, here it is:
Wide front pull-ups
1-arm cross body curls
Switch-grip pull-ups
Elbows-out lawnmowers
Standing bicep curls
1-arm concentration curls
Corn cob pull-ups
Reverse grip bent over rows
Open arm curls
Static arm curls
Towel pull-ups
Congdon locomotives
Crouching curls
1-arm corkscrew curls
Seated bent-over back flys
Curl-up/hammer downs
Hammer curls
Max rep pull-ups
In-out hammer curls
Strip-set curls

I follow my strength days with core work. I won’t go into the details, but I’ll just say that it was 20 minutes of varied core work including several of my favorite hanging ones. For good measure, I finished off with 50 burpees…the good thing is that they’re getting easier. That’s a relative statement.
