Only worked out once while in Italy for business, tried to stretch and do some mobility stuff at night. This week isn't looking so great for gym access either. Today is a bust which only leaves Wed. I'll try to get a metcon in at home today and max out on the lifts tomorrow rather than Saturday.

Power pump is something like doing a barbell complex with a 10 pound bar for 45 minutes to bad music.

Thanks, got stuck in Munich overnight, which wasn't too bad.

My training though...yeesh. I seriously don't know how you train and travel as much as you do. That and now I'm swamped from all the stuff I didn't get done when I wasn't here last week.

Have a good turkey day!

Same to you and the family.

The main difference is that most of the people I meet with don't start until at least 8:30 am so I have plenty of time in the mornings. I am sure that you don't have that luxury.

Did the family enjoy Naples?
