I have a bench with over 200 pounds+ of weights. I don't go to the gym because it is about an hour away from my home and now that school is starting I won't have time. I've been lifting for about a year now, and I've gained around 10 pounds but I've also started lifting when I was 14/15 now I'm 16. So I think I grew naturally. My strength did increase, but not dramatically. I think maybe it's because I don't go to a gym and do some exercises such as Rows and Squats. Can anyone help me make a routine that I can follow for mostly size gains that doesn't require me going to a gym? I know diet is 80% of gaining size but I already asked questions about that, right now I'm worried about my routine. I'm following the WBB#1 and cutting out some exercises that I can't do because I workout at home.
theres probly a gym at your school. most highschools have a workout room. you can do alot of exercises with 200 lbs of weight. follow wbb1 and do as much as you can with what you have
If you've been lifting for a year then what did you do last school year?
See if you can get some money to invest in a basic bench/weights setup.
Buy new or find used racks on sites like craigslist.org so that you can do squats and bench press at home.

Below is a great simple routine you should be able to do. The only problem will probably be adding more weight once you've reached your equipments limit - buy more plates or use chains. Apart from that, eat up! Read the articles in the Nutrition area and especially the stickies in the Nutrition forum (what a body builder eats***).

It's a fantastic routine, but it can be a little difficult for someone without a gym or some experience and equipment.
Im doing my stuff at home mainly because i have enough bills and payments going out and dont need to add a gym membership to that :P
But i will most likely be buying a power rack sometime in the future (throw it in the garage). Cause i cant squat very much as im limited to what i can pick up over my head LOL!
