some good tips here. thanks all!
I don’t know where I’ll stay most of the days, as it depends on how fast I drive.
What’s a good a low-carb beef jerky? Most I find have like 5g of straight sugar per serving (so relative to just 13g of protein).
Would a full-body bodyweight circuit-like routine (with those elevated feet pushups, single-leg squats, and some other things I saw in a couple articles I checked out that I forget right now) every morning be good for this? In my mind it’s still kind of hard to treat bodyweight routines seriously…would pre and post WO nutrition still be important in this case?
I’m thinking it’ll be too hard to put on muscle mass on the road so I’ll just try to cut, so that means limited carbs (so no cereals, etc.
It’ll be two and a half weeks between gyms, so probably best to exercise at least somewhat. How often would you say I should do the bodyweight stuff to not lose strength/mass but still get a break?

Do your body weight work outs correctly (to burn out on every set for every excercise) and if you will be doing full body every other day is best IMO.
Yes, do consider post wo nutrition important. You probably won’t need to eat quite as much protein as you would after killing the weights, but you’ll still need to feed your muscles after training them.
Chin ups are the most difficult body weight excercise to perform on the road, but as has been mentioned, find a playground, a tree etc and do them. In fact, a play ground can be great for body weight excercises. You can put your feet on a bench instead of a bed, do chin ups, body weight calf raises on play equipment, dips, plyometrics and all the usual stuff. Be creative and you can come up with all sorts of substitutes at a playground.
If you really work at it (no 3 sets of ten or five sets of 3), you’ll get a great training session.
