Dumbbells? Don't your hotels have a gym? Why not just carry resistance bands or TRX for the road?

A light resistance band can be used to substitute for light dumbbells, would be less hassle I’d imagine. I travel with a band in my bag sometimes for posture and mobility work.

I have 2 2lb dumbbells in my roller bag now for some rehab I’m doing and it really makes the bag a lot harder to handle. And I’m a 180 lb pretty muscular guy. I’d opt for some other method, or buy a 2nd set dumbbells to leave at the client site if I were you. No issues with TSA though

Leave it at the hotel. Buy two sets if you need it at home.

Update on this. Last week I went thru ATL security and they pulled my bag to look at my weights. I asked what the issue is and she said I’m good, they just can’t be above 5 lbs

sa1 thanks ! But yeah they do always stop the bag with weights because of the way they look which is annoying. Yes I know those might say bring the bands but for the workouts I do I use light weights like 2-3 pounds and it’s not the same. I use the bands for thigh and leg work ! Thanks all! Good thing got the weighted works in this weekend !

T don’t this in a while so I wonder if they now go right through. Thanks. Use them for in room workouts

I use light weights that gym doesn’t have and use streaming apps in room

Good to know no tsa hassle. That was main concern not the weight 😂

I love the taste of coffee, but I feel like my consumption goes up, up, up then mixed with the stress of my job i get anxiety and I burn myself out.

Any tips for how to maintain some sort of balance or cut it out for good? I read in the decaf sub Reddit and they act like it’s awful for you but I don’t know how I feel about that.
