Benched 130 pounds, 65 pounds on each side. Nowadays, I'm a far cry from last year. I ate too much shit being in a depressive state for much of the latter half of 2009 and for the beginning months of 2010. I no longer have a gym membership, but is there anyway I can build myself up using nature? Not just running, but I also want to build up as well. I only have one dumbbell (25 pounds) and I have basically no money. I'm still 5'6 and I'm now 159 pounds. Lost some muscle and in turn now I have some fat. Looking to lose that. Problem is, I lose my breath faster than I used to. In that one year, I undid two years of progress. Any help would be much appreciated. I also have Body Fortress Vanilla Whey Protein, which works well after workouts.
Guys, help? Any elements of nature I can use to help build myself up, since I no longer have a gym membership? I highly doubt ab crunches and using a 25 lb dumbbell will give me sufficient results. I'm 159, I want to be 170 with considerable muscle mass by the end of Summer. Is this a realistic goal, or no? I remember gaining at most 15 pounds of muscle from February - May last year with the gym alone. I no longer have that luxury.

I do yoga and I'm more ripped than my friend who is constantly at the gym.

Could do squats, calf raises, lunges all just using your body weight. Since you will be just using your weight then are going to have to do considerably more then you probably would in a gym.

Then there is chinups, pushups, crunches and dips, all stuff that is easy to do with no equipment. There is tons of different pushups you can do to hit different parts, just look it up in google or just experiment yourself by placing hands in different positions.

I cannot see you putting on 15 pounds of muscle doing this but it will be a good start to at least start to get back on track.

Bodybuilding.com is a good place to find different exercises. If you have an iPhone/iTouch you can download iFitness. Best fitness app in the app store, its $2. It has everything logs, wanna workout a certain muscle its in there, it has a ton a crap (except nutritional tips). I got it and am glad I did, worth it. They do updates about every 3 weeks.

DID YOU NOT GET THE MEMO SON?

Its unrealistic i think. On the short term though, how about getting the Perfect Pushup? I know people automatically assume something thats seen on an infomercial is bogus, but this is actually a decent piece of equipment for someone lacking sufficient weights. You can find it in stores for 20 bucks. That and a heavier dumbbell you should be good for a while.

That reminds me of the Tower 200(220lbs. of resistance). Its like $200 (you can make payments). You set it up on the door and your good. Its kind of like a home gym. I bought from target to give it a try but, I did not like it. The resistance bands are short (you can still workout) but if you want longer ones, get the X Factor. I got it at target because I read before I bought it that, the bands break sometimes and that people called if the company can replace them (while still under warranty, I think the bands were excluded from the warranty) but they said no. So I bought it at target just to be safe even though I had to drop 2 bills immediately, because they have a good return policy.

No need to spend $20 on something which is pretty much what you can do for free. As brute said, there are a whole heap of different pushups you can do to help gain strength.

You cant duplicate the rotation though. Just putting some hex dumbells on the floor to elevate yourself or whatever isnt the same thing. Ive known quite a few people who've said theyre pointless until theyve used them. Its actually much harder than regular pushups, i was only able to get half of what i normally do the first time.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Thanks, guys. I'll heed your considerations and see what I can do. I'll look up some of these exercises on Google and go to bodybuilding.com as well. Can practicing a martial art (such as Muay Thai) also build up your stamina?
