Psyched about your summer plans, but worried about hijacking your fitness goals? Don’t be! First of all, rest and recovery are crucial parts of any training program, so go ahead dedicate some time to pure relaxation. Secondly, CrossFit is a portable sport. We all love barbells, kettlebells, and ski ergs, but you don’t need any equipment to get an effective workout. In fact, many benchmark WODs use only bodyweight movements, so you can do them anywhere (in the tiny hotel gym, on the beach, in your parents’ basement, etc.) 

We put together this list of WODs that travel well. If you don’t have access to a pull-up bar, you can sub in biceps curls (use whatever weights are handy), banded rows (a band is cheap and will fit in your carry-on), or bodyweight dips (use a bench or chair). And don’t forget to pack your jump rope!
