    workout suggestion for travel and limited equipment

    I'm 35 years old, 5'10 194# and maintain a pretty lean physique.
    I've been working out with gear for over two years, currently running test E.

    Here is my dilemma, for two weeks I work abroad then return home where I have regular access to the gym. When abroad I have a few items to work out with. I'm looking for suggestions to get by with until I have my full selection at gym once home.
    Here is what I have: 50# kettle bell, 2 x 35# dumbells, 2 x 20# dumbells, and total weight 85# on a barbell.

    I'm facing high reps with any of these to get muscle failure, but need to start thinking outside the box. Any help is appreciated.

    Here are some exercise suggestions from our friend the Army.

    TC 3-22.20 Army Physical Readiness Training

    Aside from that I would recommend buying TRX straps as well or just see if you can carry a set of dial weights.

    Push ups, pull ups, burpees, squat jumps, lunges. This is all you need. Each has plenty of varieties for diff levels of fitness, no equipment or space needed, killer workouts.

    id probably go with trying to tie the dumbbells to the barbell giving you a max of 195lbs.. not heavy but decent enough to work with...

    Kettlebell swings, cleans and snatches combined with push ups, pull ups and lunges should keep you huffin and puffin.
