No Training Over Spring Break, Help?

Hi! My spring break is in about a month and I’ll be visiting colleges with my parents for a bit over 2 weeks. During that time I won’t have any opportunity to lift (packed schedule, lack of equipment and lack of parent support). I’m really scared of loosing some serious strength. What should I do, help!!!

2 weeks is nothing. Just do some push-ups & pull-ups (if you can find somewhere to do them). Or just take the time totally off. If you took a whole 2-3+ months off your concern would be much more warranted.

Either find a gym or two along the way or look at Josh Bryant’s YouTube channel, he has a bunch of “hotel workout” videos. You won’t get stronger but at least you can maintain muscle mass. Make sure you eat too.

Clench it tightly, but even if you accidentally allow it to get loose that doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily lose it.

I wouldn’t worry about a few weeks at 18.

Train hard up to that point. Two weeks off will be a welcomed relief. No big deal at all.

Cool Thanks!

enjoy the spring break and take some days off ! you will have alot of benefits from it
