    Workout tips since I have no wieghts?

    Im a poor college student to start. I do 100 diamonds a night and 75 crunches. Can someone give me some tips on other things to do that will help build me up? A routine is what im looking for and other exercises aswell. I dont want something thats really long cause i go to school full time and work over 20 hours a week. thanks.

    Diamond pushups, I'm guessing.

    do some pullups, I'd imagine dips would be doable as well. Does your college have a gym?

    lunges, rows, pushups, use your bookbag for resistance.

    Iknow someone in prison and the can't have weights there, so he works out a lot pull up bars, push ups and he is huge. He said he use a book by the Navy Seals on working out on a bar and damn it sure works, because he is bigger than me and he hasn't lifted weights in five years he's been there.

    Thanks, I actually had a friend do this before he got his gym pass. It's supposed to work fairly well.

    get a 2 litre, or 5 litre (yous call it gallons) bottle of orange juice, drink it, and fill it up with rocks and use them as dumbells
    For every $1 you donate to the "buy Lude more weight plates foundation", you will help add 1kg to my 1RM.

    Use your bookbag full of books. Put it on your chest and do your crunches, strap it to your back and do push-ups, put it on your back and do pullups or chinups, do one armed curls with it. Just improvise anything wiht weight and use it! Good Luck!
    Second place is just a generic term your mom created to make you not feel bad about losing, because second place is actually first loser!

    LOL im kinda scared of college now if all your books make up a good enough weight to workout with.
    Chris Mason is my master.....

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.

    Dude.. dumbells aren't all THAT expensive..

    if you look in your local newspaper I'm sure you'll find some used equipment.. all you need is a couple dumbells and you're set.

    Some good stuff here. Poke around.

    I also agree with Spawn_X, you CAN afford dumbbells, you might need to get creative (Play it Again Sports or something). This will do it for you.

    You can also try doing push-ups on 3 chairs (the variation Brock Lesnar does), bodyweight tricep extensions (awesome), perform one legged calf raises on any stairs you can find, and pull ups with a towel (of course, provided you can find something solid enough to support the weight).
    Change is good.

    Build up your strenght on regular push ups and free weight squats, when you feel like you need more resistance try one legged squats and one arm pushups.
    When I had no access to equipment I would load my backback with as many tins of food as it would take and do pushups and squats.
    Hand stand pushups are great for the upper body, pop your feet on the wall for balance.
    Just improvise a little, your muscles have no idea where the resistance is coming from, they just contract.

    Here's a chest exercise I like to do:

    Forearm press
    Lie prone on the floor, arms bent so that your forearms are parallel to your body and your palms face your head
    (imagine as if you fell flat on your face while holding two dumbells at the bottom of a shoulder press)

    Just look forward and lift your chest a few inches off the ground and support your weight on your forearms and toes for as long as you can. To make the exercise easier or harder, just pull your arms closer to you or further out to the sides.

    Good luck
