nomad hobo fitness equipment

I will travel by car a while and I'd like to get some equipment with me so that I may workout in short breaks or in campings. I'm thinking of stuff that wont be excesively heavy but will provide sufficient resistance.

obviously pushups, pullups and the like of calisthenics exercises will be the main focus but i was thinking of getting a sandbag/bulgarian bag/sand heavy ball as well.

maybe a kettlebell would be ok as well or ropes that you can tie to a tree for climbing and pulling the car strongman style.

anyway do you have any other suggestions?

    An elastic kit is the 1st thing that comes to mind imo, for sure

      I've had stuff like this and they break easily. honestly i could never do squats or hinge type movements with bands.

      good idea. i thought of the sandbags because you can technically carry them around and get the same activation plus the one in the core and lower back. good idea though, I should probably have had one by now

        Check out 531 WALRUS for some simple ideas. If you have access to pull ups, maybe have a steel pole to put in a tree, you're pretty much set.

          oh yeah pullups are a given, if i can find two branches at the same level where I can prop the bar.

        They shouldnt. Do you remember which brand you picked? In which context did they break exactly? I mean I personally use some for assisted chin-ups and I weight fucking 250lbs (fat)

          they were from the decathlon band. the easier ones actually stretch and are useable, and the harder/heavier version are immovable or near immovable since I cant grip them properly.

          in any case I'm not a big fan of bands used for compunds. I am a big fan of light ones used for targeting shoulders and arm muscles though

            I agree with you there
            But forget about compounds if you don't have a barbell
            How long are you gonna be gone anyway? Personally I would only do some calisthenics and jogging. You won't make gains but at least you'll lower your bf%

              about 1-2 weeks. obviously the equipment would stay with me and eventually I can build a creative home gym set.
              so it would not be a purchase for a one time use.

              I'm really fucking bored of going to a comercial gym but I cant seem to target the lower body properly without squats and deads, or the back without a bunch of dumbells for rowing.

              and I'm not in the mood of shelling out hundreds if not thousands of euros on equipments (fitness equipment is expensive in my shithole of a country for some reason)

              Why would you say this, a barbell isn't the only way to do compound movements. I'd disregard everything this anon have said just due to this stupid ass comment.

                imo compunds are better than with bodyweight or with added weight to a bodyweight movement. training with bands feels really fucking weird

                I would never use bands unless it's for warming up

    Kettle bells, dip belt, and handles to dip with. You can make the dip handles, the others you will have to buy.

    All dope ideas. I love climbing ropes.

    Obviously trail running shoes are good. Hiking with your ruck or running with your ruck for time.

    Some ideas from my army days.Sand bags and an etool, or 20l Jerry cans. Good fitness sandbags won’t dump the sand as you run with them. You can fill the sand bags with dirt to whatever weight you want and dump when you’re done, or fill cans with water and also you have extra water. Pop one of them bitches on your shoulder and run a few miles. It’s probably more “functional” than a lot of shit you’ll do. Carry heavy shit long distance.

    Homeless anon here and if I wasn't saving calories I'd be doing bodyweight excercises and also have a weighted vest /books or bricks in a bag. I would also use water bottles I fill with sand or rocks. Since you have a car you could get more solid equipment instead of doing it IST
