  • Whats your favorite zero-equipment home workout?

    For the days when you simply can't make it to the gym.

    I like the bodyrock.tv workouts. Some of them use equipment (sandbag, dip station, or pull-up bar), but there are some that are bodyweight-only, and others where I substitute a different move if I don't have the equipment. =]

    I'm blogging again, at least a little bit.

          All types of push ups, play with hand positions and leverage, elevate your feet for harder variations, go up and down the stairs, get creative.

          Squats, one-leg squats (aka pistols)

          All types of planks, dragon flags, etc.

          There’s always ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS a place you can do pull ups from, not necessarily a branch or a door frame pull up bar, but stairs, rafters, doors (yes, the actual door itself)… but seriously invest in a $20 pull up bar, one of the best pieces of equipment out there.

          During the cold months I’ve done 80% of my workouts in my bedroom.
          I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

            Absolutely. Where I live, you're not doing too much outdoor exercise right now(up until a few days ago you could walk onto the roof of my garage via snow...). Having a pull-up bar is a lifesaver. Currently, I've been focusing on push ups though. Trying to even out the back and shoulders that rock climbing has given me.

                Burpees, squats, lunges, planks and stair sprints (if you live in tall-ish building).
                Everything in moderation, including moderation.

                      Dice game:
                      Pick any 6 bodyweight exercises. Assign them numbers 1-6. The other die indicates how many you do (Have a d20? even better.) Do it until you have done each each exercise for every turn of the dice (i.e. seen the numbers 1-6 come up on the 2nd die for every exercise.)
                      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                          Depending on what type of workout you're looking for.

                          2. Pistol squats, one arm pushups, pullups, handstand pushups
                          3. Hill sprints
                          4. 100 burpees for time
                          5. Yoga dvd

                              I have a pull up bar, Bowflex selecTech 552 dumbells, a 12 lb medicine ball and a jump rope. That stuff and a copy of "You are your own Gym" by Mark Lauren and you can literally never go back to a gym. I also use my v-force weighted vest to add resistance to my body weight exercises. The vest cost a small fortune, but a lot less than a gym membership! I got the dumbells using my credit card "thank you points" so they were basically free.
