Here’s what Rocky Marciano, the only undefeated heavyweight champion of the world (49-0) had to say about training when he was on the road:
“I was willing to make sacrifices. Even while traveling, when there were no facilities, I would spend hours in my hotel room working on my strength. I wanted more than anything else to be a fighter. Then I wanted to be a good one, and after that a great champion.”
When you’re on the road, traveling for business or pleasure, it is easy to get side-tracked. You’re not in your typical surroundings. The gym you normally train in isn’t within reach. This makes it easy to rationalize and create excuses.
“I’ll get back on the stick when I get home,” you say to yourself.
In the meantime, you’re falling backward. You’re losing valuable training time. You fail to recognize that there is a gym “everywhere” – even in your hotel room.
All it takes is a few exercises in Combat Conditioning and Combat Abs and you can find a vigorous way to train, no matter where you are. You don’t need machines, barbells, dumbbells, a treadmill or a stairmaster.
All you need is YOU and your own bodyweight. Rocky Marciano understood this. He was a bodyweight exercises fanatic. And he knocked the living crap out of everyone he fought – and did so at a bodyweight of 185 pounds.
I think that’s something worthy of note, don’t you?
