|Any pic with KK is worth posting. Awesome for sure but I typed in, "minimalist strength training", to find this. This isn't...|
If there is a rule number one to minimalist training, it has to be that you've got to happily embrace BW training. If your access to a gym is spotty, at best, and your ability to lay your hands on stuff to train with changes, then you've got to have a decent plan on how to make your body your equipment. There is simply no way around it. Even as you get very advanced, you can still make a hard workout out of BW alone.

Over the past 10 years of training, I've come to realize that while the challenge to the upper body posed by BW training is nearly limitless, the lower body work isn't quite at open-ended. So, if those options are exhausted, or some weight is wanted, then you've just got to learn to look around. This world is full of heavy, awkward stuff you can lift and move. One thing that I've come to love moving for training is the vehicle I'm driving when I travel. If you're a training minimalist, you'd better learn to love the sight of random junk piles. There's an 86% chance that a great workout is in there, waiting for you.

This is just another sign of iron addiction. When you limit yourself to such a narrow means of training that you can't come up with a workout unless you're standing in a fully-equipped gym, then you're doing it wrong. There's always a good workout nearby, no matter were you happen to be standing and what your circumstances are. You've just got to find it. If you can't find it, then there's a problem. It's in your head.
Oh, and this blog entry is too good not to link to, and relevant to what I'm talking about here
