CrossFit band workout using muscle pairs for chest and back

On a hostel roof in Delhi, India. CrossFit bands are great for traveling. Light, cheap, train anything anywhere plus they marry up as a backpack band to carry stuff.

After days trekking the Kuri pass burning the legs with a 15 kg back to 4000m it was time for some upper body work back in Delhi. No dieting here, eating everything in sight keeping fat on for trekking energy and as it’s a veg only diet here. Curry gains for days!

I found this chest and back working in muscle pairs (concentric – eccentric) really gave some good burn. Go slow keep tension.

Well pet, I’m a Bakewell Tart fiend, straight talking (with a slight twang), nutrition nutter, fond exercise go’er and surfing enthusiast. Visual creativity and fitness are my career and travelling my passion. So I decided to mix them, permanently, and left the London grind for a life of nomad travel. This is where I document it, like a hamster stashing his nuts. I hope you find my destination writings helpful, my nutrition posts informative and my workouts energising.
