Getting in a workout at the gym when it’s completely packed can really throw your routine off track. You are frustrated because all of the machines and benches are taken and you know it is going to take you twice as long to get in the workout that you want.

Instead of skipping your workout you need to think instinctively. You need to think high-intensity, fast paced, minimal yet productive. You need to think laser sharp focus so you can get in and out and not get annoyed by the crowd. All you need is one piece of equipment and you can do a lot of damage.

The following workouts are perfect for those looking to keep their gains even if it means going outside of your workout routine. If you work hard enough during these workouts, you will see some progress that you didn’t think was possible during busy times at the gym.
