Workouts with minimal equipment/running

So, I'm about to deploy to Afghanistan. I'm trying to put together some workouts so I can PT while I'm there. The problem is, where I'm going there isn't a whole lot of space to run and there is minimal gym/workout equipment.

What can I do? What kind of workouts should I be looking in to?

I've read stuff about guys using rebar and other metal as bars and pouring concrete and stones and **** into buckets to use as weights. Get creative

decline push ups. burpees. I feel like anything with a pushup is good since you guys do a lot of those. hold heavy **** and do lunges. i'm sure you could find something that you can do pull ups on. other than that you're s.o.l.

My dad used to do that when he shipped out for Exxon/Mobil when he was younger.

Yea, we're working on that.

What I think we'll end up doing is pooling some money together and getting some kettle bells. They'll be a ***** to ship, but kettle bells seem to be most versatile piece of workout equipment.

Sandbags, dude.

You can't say there isn't sand out there.

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/the-sandbag-workout/

I just use a regular bag of sand that I taped up a bit, but these are easy to ship and if you want to add more weight, just add more sand. I don't know much about the designated ones, so you may wanna research it. There are books and CD's for exercises but I use this one and it's harder than it looks. And I throw in some extra moves like lunges/upright rows (on a bar, no sandbag haha).

Yeah dude I just bought a 50lb bag of play sand for like $3 and it's more than enough for me. It had a leak so I taped it, but if you had a duffel bag or something (because you, like most) are probably stronger than I, you could easily add more weight.

It's quick, and in the 3 sets I did it kicked my ***. The walk is the worst, especially if you try to project it out a bit and isolate your back/arms.
