Training Abroad: Full Body Training (3) & Random Musings

After nearly three hours of security check points I am finally sitting in the food court of Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Unfortunately I haven’t had internet access for a several days now so I’ll try to sum up what I’ve been doing and what I have in store for the coming weeks in a few short paragraphs.

I spent my first week in Israel based out of Haifa travelling, hiking, shopping, visiting old friends, and relaxing on the beach.

It was quite the vacation 🙂

Now my vacation is over and the previous four days I’ve been in the heart of Jerusalem working through 12-15 hour days learning how to become a tour guide for a group of teenagers travelling through Israel, Poland, and The Czech Republic.

This Monday I’ll meet up with my students in Europe, we’ll spend about 1 week travelling through Poland and the Czech Republic, and then make our way to Israel for the remaining 4 weeks.

Right now it’s about 3:30am Israel time and my flight to Prague has been delayed for 4 hours; fortunately this will give me time to upload some videos I’ve made over the last week.

One of the videos is a Full Body Strength Training routine in which I used only bands/bodyweight as a resistance. I’ll provide the written training routine below the video but for a detailed description I encourage you to watch the movie in it’s entirety.

The other two videos are just random snippets of me as a I travel through the gorgeous city of Haifa and end up on one of its incredible beaches. I really don’t have much of an agenda in these videos and end up discussing some of my thoughts about life, travel, and fun in general.

As always, I hope you enjoy the videos and if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions please leave them in the comments section at the end.

Never Minimal. Never Maximal. Always Optimal.
