Stew Smith's on-the-road legs workout

CM Teammate Luciano wanted a legs workout for those cases when you don't have access to a gym. Here's what Stew does when he's traveling for leg days.

"Option #1 - run 2-3 miles but in between each 1/2 mile I stop and do.

squats - 25
lunges 15 / leg
heel raises - 25

Option #2 - if not comfortable with running around a strange town or gym does not have a bike, treadmill, etc... do the same leg exercises but run flights of steps.

I like to run 5 flights of steps / stop and do above leg PT - repeat 4-5 times. Then I go back to my room and do ab exercises in between leg stretching.

Teammates, Tom Rancich (another SEAL pal on the 20 year plus plan) had the following advice for Luciano: Lunges, squat thrusts, 8-counts, flutter kicks and his favorite---running the stairs of the hotel. My advice is to do the 8-count Body Builder Perfect Pushup workout. If you have a good travel workout for legs, comment here or at
