Good question!

 

If you don't have any equipment you're really limited in what you can do, but you're going about it in the right way. I did basic exercises here and there for a couple months before I decided I was serious about paying for a gym and I'm really glad I did that.

 

Do you have any weights laying around? If not all you can really do are push-ups, sit ups, crunches.. maybe pull-ups. And of course running.

 

That's all i got

 

cheers man, I have a couple of dumbells lying around not heavy ones or anything like that just 10lb ones for light work outs that my brother left here when he went to university.

 

As for doing whole body work outs I walk everywhere have always cycled or skateboarded so my legs are in pretty good shape just want to build up the upper body mass a bit and get it toned.

 

But thanks again for all the advice guys, you will probably find me asking a few more questions in here because I really am notwanting to join a gym because it just seems like a bunch of posers in them.

 

One thing that worries me slightly is when I was 17 I crashed a motorbike and fractured a vertaebrae in my back, I don't really get back problems anymore but sometimes it does ache a bit, what things should I watch out for while working out with my back to make sure I don't damage it.

Good form. Don't sacrifice form to get a weight up or do another rep or you might injure yourself. That extends to all exercises, not just your back movements. Once you know what exercises you are going to be doing you should go on Youtube and watch the proper form in some videos so you know how to do it correctly and avoid straining your muscles or injuring yourself.

 

As for those dumbbells, you'd be surprised how much use you could get out of small ones like that. You won't gain any size from them but doing high reps will still strengthen and give you lean muscle. You can do a shitload of exercises with dumbbells as far as variations and just having a bit of extra weight for doing leg moves. You're not limited to pushups at all if you don't have equipment. Gyms are god for some people, but some people don't like them. You do not need them though, unless you have a hard time motivating yourself.

 

You don't need weights to gain strength. You just have to do varied moves and keep at it. Change it up every few weeks and keep busting your ass.

I been doing starting strength for a few months.

but had to take about 6-8 weeks of recently, due to work.

 

Anyway, trying to lose some of the fat that comes with drinking a fuck load of full fat milk.

I switched to semi skimmed milk and drink way less now.

 

At the moment, im still loosely following the starting strength routine plus cycling for around 40mins 3 times a week. Although, I wouldnt mind switching routines if anyone can recommend anything good?

 

I'd quite like to do something involving chins and dips cos these have gone way down since i stopped doing them and I builked up.

That book is really interesting Casek, I always thought you are better off using your natural body weight to develop yourself and it is crazy how even some of the easiest exercises in there can really start to burn on the muscles, looking forward to using this to develop a regular routine.

The part that blew my mind was about the old time strongmen using bodyweight exercises to gain the muscle that allowed them to bend nails, cast iron skillets, etc.

 

 

Also: I used to know this guy. He's no joke.

youtube search ghetto workout,,apparently it's NYC's latest craze

 

The dudes that post these videos are impressive, but you can't just walk outside and decide to exercise like that. To even get to the level of pull-ups they are doing is a shitload of work. That book Casek posted is a good path to that type of strength.

Right on the money. I've got one of The Bartendaz dvd's (I did not pay for this) and dudes

are killin' on the calisthenics. It's all very disciplined work, but you cannot go out and decide to just do this type of workout.

 

 

Anyone interested in this grip work book I've got?

You can occupy yourself on a treadmill at least, I guess. TV and shit. Especially if you live in a place where the weather sucks donkey balls. Whenever I go running outside I need to be somewhere that the scenery changes frequently or I get crazy bored. The city is fun, but polluted air can beat your lungs. Where I'm at now is just barren land. So fucking boring, even on my bike.

 

 

Casek, I'll grab most any books you post up. I'm trying to collect enough exercise shit to do over the next year or so, so whatever. If it doesn't strike my fancy I can always delete it.

 

Those Bartendaz dudes do sick shit. I saw one video where a guy was doing pullups on one bar and thrusting himself up to a higher bar and then dropping back down and repeating. Over and over again. Amazing.

Word. When I get some more interesting stuff I'll make sure to upload it and link here.

 

Yeah, the Bartendaz do all sorts of crazy shit on the playground. They're also doing a lot to help those ghetto kids. That or they're turning them into hulking monsters who will eat regular people for breakfast.

i actually cant, if i look up at the tv's when im on the treadmill i start going to the side or run into the bar at the front and look like an idiot.

the local running spot around here is "the loop" at the beach, kinda nice scenery and about half a mile of it (total 3 miles) is on dirt trail which is nice. but half of it is along planters with the exact same looking trees spaced the exact distance, the exact color and exact size. and on both sides. its fucking hell jogging that stretch...

and never ran in the city before, something about stopping every block waiting for cars doesnt really appeal when your trying to do a 5 mile loop

I've been bouldering for the fuck of it lately. I started in order to supplement my BJJ, but now I'm almost addicted to climbing things and its definitely had an impact on my grip, forearms and lats. Certainly not hypertrophy, but they're much stronger.

 

Plus, it's a good way to work on your tan in the summer.

 

I don't know where I'm going with this post, but, yeah. It's been awhile.
