This is the first of the "staple" CrossFit workouts I have put into the programming.  A perfect example of a chipper.  It's a fun one!!  If you do not have the proper equipment, this is a great time to begin to learn about finding ways to use your daily surroundings as tools for increasing fitness.  Water bottles, rocks, logs, etc.  One of the best ideas for when in a hotel room or something like that, double or triple up on a plastic shopping bag, fill it with water bottles or rocks and there you go.  For a good barbell (and for added stability work) hang evenly weighted bags on the end of a broom stick or shower rod.  for pull ups, use the top of a door, sure you'll bump your head a little, but it still works.  Use the edge of a table for inverted rows, chairs for dips and box jumps.  The second you think of one thing, you'll realize that the world really can be a gym!  

There is never any excuse to not work out.  There is always something to use.
