    Recommendations with limitations

    Hi all. Here is a list of all I have access to. What's the best thing to do with what I have (and of course things I can do like sit-ups and what not)? I have:

    Curling Bar
    Weights to put on the curling bar
    Free weights

    Basically I'm asking with these limited things, what's the best thing to do to build my arms & "six pack" area? Thanks

    wel if you have no bench


    for your chest id just say do a ton of pushups

    for the arms and shoulders id say curls for the biceps, over head tricep extension, and military presses and front raises for shoulders, barbell rows for back. if you can place it on your back so high rep squatting and deadlifitng


    thats about the most i can think of as far as being basic, just mess around with it for a while

    I've heard military presses, what exactly do you do?

    Yes, it looks like what you drew. And yes, I meant dumbbells.

    Join a gym. You will not make significant change to your physique without training your entire body.

    If you are only interested in building your arms and 'six pack area' you are in the wrong place.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
