portable gym

I'm off on holiday in 10 days and probably won't be able to get to the gym (or at the most 1 or 2 times).
I have a few different ideas with bodyweight training and packing a light barbell in the car, but was also looking at getting a cable/elastic set like this:

www.bodylastics.com

Just wondering if anyone had tried something similar or kinows where to order/buy in the UK (I am coming to the UK on holiday, so could order and pick it up when I arrive).

I know ironmind do a similar but much more heavyduty product, which i quite fancy.

    aaahhhhhHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......my fault!

    Yep ive used some of those elastic thingys, but they where reebox ones, not bad, very versatile with what you can do with them, most youll get out of them is a really good pump, would help maintain .

    Can't see the point, there are dozens upon dozens of bodyweight exercises that can be done - if losing muscle is your concern then a month isn't enough for anything noticable to happen unless you starve yourself, strength will go quickly though.

    I know what you mean. i am a big fan of bodyweight training. The reason I ask about elastics is because I can think of a few uses for them after the holidays (change of pace, adding resistance to chins/dips/pressups, used as bands for variable resistance on bench/squat etc. Also I train alone and if I can find some really strong ones (like the ironmind one) it might let me safely do a couple of things I do dangerously now!
