Today I'm in Florida and working out in a big, busy gym that I've never been in before. It's going to be challenging. It's a great lesson for you guys out there, though, because sticking to a fitness plan isn't always simple. Sometimes, things get in the way and you have to make adjustments. Check out the video to see how I adjust for the absent donkey calf raise and calf press machines, for example.
The important thing is to stay consistent with your meals and with your workouts, even when you're not in your comfort zone. That's the only way you're going to reach your dream physique.
During the second and third trisets in this workout, you'll utilize what I call "pound per rep" for your biceps and triceps exercises. This methodology is fun because you get to do as many reps as the amount of weight you pick up. I usually use 40-50 pounds, so that means I'll do 40-50 reps per exercise. I definitely get a killer pump.

Success Tip Fitness and travel
Everybody wants to know how they can stay fit while they're traveling. Yes, it takes a little bit of extra preparation on your part, but that time and effort will pay big dividends at the end of the month.
I prepare my food before I travel and put it into a Six-Pack Fitness Bag that's specifically made to carry food. I fill a couple containers with ice to act as coolers and then get nine meals into the bag. It's everything I need to get all of my macros in, even when I'm on the road.
Success Tip Breaking the threshold
To do well in this program, you have to get into the habit of pushing past your threshold. Everybody goes into the gym and does 3 sets of 10 reps; that's a basic exercise system.
Sure, it'll work, but if you do 10 reps and still have 4 reps left in you, then you're not getting the most out of your workouts. Remember this when any workout gets particularly tough.
