My workout in Niagara Falls

Ok, I didn't workout IN the falls (no going over the falls in a barrel for me!)

I've actually been up here in Niagara Falls for this past weekend for my good buddy Vince Delmonte's wedding to his beautiful bride, Flavia.

By the way, if you're interested in muscle building workouts and nutrition, be sure to check out how Vince transformed himself from "Skinny Vinny" to over 200 lbs of solid muscle (while staying single-digit bodyfat lean) at his site:


As for my Niagara Falls workout...

When I'm traveling, it's obviously a LOT harder to eat my normal clean diet, so I try to make sure I still find time to fit in some intense workouts.

So, before the wedding on saturday, I had about 30 minutes before I had to get ready for the wedding, and figured I'd fit in a good workout.

I went down to the hotel gym, and here was my workout:

1. warmed up for 4 minutes with the treadmill at a 12% incline and 4.5 mph.

2. Did 2 minutes straight of reverse dumbbell lunges (legs were starting to burn pretty good at that point)

3. Then I did an intense upper body circuit with a combo of dumbbell exercises and cables (lat pulls, horizontal rows, chest presses, bent over reverse shoulder raises, etc, etc)... and I mixed in some mountain climbers and other ab exercises in between the upper body circuit.  I did this with almost no rest in between exercises.

4.  After totally frying my upper body and abs, I got out of the stuffy hotel gym and went to the hotel stair case. I did the stairs all the way to the top floor (the 24th floor) and then back down.  While going up, I alternated sprinting one flight of stairs with walking double steps on the next, then sprinting again, etc.

Overall, I fit the entire workout in about 30 minutes and was drenched in sweat at the end...feeling like I at least accomplished something good for myself on a trip that would otherwise be non-stop eating and drinking.

Congrats once again to Vinny D on his marriage to Flavia!

Here's another article I have for you with great ideas for super-fast "multi-workouts" for time-crunched people... no excuses on this one!

I'll be back in a couple days with more Lean-Body Tips.  Keep training hard,
