What I have at my disposal:

Okay. I can't run to exercise, my parents have an issue with me doing so...do you guys think that it's possible for me to build any sort of muscle with these limited sources?
Some of the best exercises don't require any weights. Do push ups and sit ups. You could get a chin up bar. Do some squats with the weights, and what not.

I do this every night before I go to bed 8 minute abs. Its a good workout for your abs. And you should try to let your parents run, I don't know why they wouldn't allow you unless you live in the ghetto or something. If your school has a weight room a tread mill try to use that after or before school.

Personally, I love doing my back more than any other body part there is. Getting that V shape is the most impressive thing one can do, imo. If you look back to all the Mr. Olympia's, the contestant who has the widest/bulkiest back frame usually wins (except for Dexter Jackson last year).

Conventional deadlifts are one of the few exercises I really can say I excel at. 405 max on those bad boys now and it's my favorite exercise to do. While I'm good at benching and decent at squatting, they fail in comparison to my DL.

Honorary mention:


-Shoulders: Love the side lateral raises to work on the side deltoids. There's nothing better to feed your ego than OHP or Push Pressing up a large amount of weight so that'd be my second favorite exercise.

How bout' everyone else?
For me, back is probably my favorite... I injured my back in 2005, and since it has gotten better, I put extra work in my back for some reason. My back days are killer for most people... fixin to work it in about 30 min actually. Lat Pulldowns - 4x12 superset with Lat Pulldowns behind the head - 4x12, Bent over BB rows - 4x12, T-Bar - 4x12, Seated Rows - 4x12. All start with warm-up set, then get as heavy as possible w/o hurting myself. I used to do deads frequently, but got too stupid with them and messed up my back again. Haven't messed with them for about 6 months. Going to start back soon I hope.

Next is Shoulders - love them but they hurt if I push too much
Chest - used to be my fav, only prob is the soreness I feel the next couple days
Calves - like working them, but can't get them to grow anymore, sucks
Traps - like them, but pay w/ a headache the next day
Abs - make my back hurt, but making them more of a priority lately
Arms - arm muscles count for 3% of your body's total muscle, so why spend 50% of your time working them. Arms get 3 exercises each per week from me. Tris follow back, and Bis follow chest
Legs - they suck, and my back has trouble handling them. I still work them hard, but just know i'm going to pay the next day or two.... or three

I really don't have a favorite muscle target group just yet. But it seems that my strongest muscles are my chest and back. My legs have always been my strongest muscles. The one muscle that needs the most work are my arms. I have no real muscle in my arms and they are my weak point. So, I think that they will become my target muscle during my workout. I still don't have a favorite exercise.

Haha, right on. You have the same mentality as me except for the traps/calves. Funny to see someone think THAT alike like myself when it comes to working out different groups. Good shit.

Nolo King read an article on portion sizes!

Was a comparison of portion sizes of today compared to twenty years ago!

Amazing how much more people eat, they could lose so much weight doing something as simple as eating less, lawls!

I just got back from another workout with my personal trainer. It was more intense than my first workout. And I loved it. I'm sore as fuck, but I love the pain right now. My upper body is going to be strong as fuck in a few weeks. Yeah.

I haven't worked out consistently for months now...but I'm already starting slowly by cutting back on soft drinks and strenth-training trying to firm up lol. Now, I need to start jogging again, but with this cold weather it makes it difficult for me to actually go outside and run 4 miles. I'm trying to work out 5 times a week for a AT LEAST 40 minutes. My goal is to lose 8 or 10 lbs and firm up which won't be hard since I'm already used to working out. Funny how guys want to gain weight and girls want to lose weight lol.

Thanks. He has me hitting my upper body right now. So basically, I'm hitting the Chest, Triceps, Biceps, Shoulders, Back, etc. So, I'm basically doing my upper body with him twice a week. I'm going to do my legs on my own.
