    No weight room? Aaah, I'm lost!

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Anyone want to give me something fun and challenging?

    Normally I lift weights in the gym. But my membership just ran out and I'm returning to America in a few weeks, so no sense in renewing it.

    At my flat I have a TRX and a Swiss ball. I'm trying hard to get back into shape after losing a lot of strength and conditioning. But I never did much in way of bodyweight/suspension trainer workouts. I thought it would also be a fun way to shake things up and get me reenergized about working out. Even though I like lifting weights, I've had serious motivation problems lately.

    Anyone want to hit me up? I am a doll in your hands!

    Stand on the ball. Bonus points if you live.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Hop on over to GymnasticsBodies.com and have a look at their WODs. That'll give you a boatload of ideas...
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

    Push-ups, Sit-ups, Squats, Lunges. Do one hundred of each, in any order, as fast as you can.

    Would you like a list of bodyweight exercises?

    Good!

    Push ups: wide, narrow, diamond, hindu, jack knife, weighted, one armed, handstand, one arm handstand, planche
    Dips: on bench, on parallel bars, weighted
    Planks: front, side, superman, human flag, dragon flag
    Squats: regular, pistol, shrimp, weighted
    Pullups: regular, towel, muscle-ups, chin-ups, mixed grip varieties, one-armed varieties, weighted
    Walks/crawls: bear crawl, crab walk, leave your lower body limp and drag yourself across the ground using your hands/arms (I don't know what that's called)
    Misc: Hang from a bar for as long as you can, jump as high as you can over and over until you can't jump anymore, jump as far as you can over and over until you can't jump anymore, L-sits, frog stands, pec flys with gymnast rings, go back and forth on the damn monkeybars!
    Isometrics: Pit one limb against the other in a struggle for dominance! Keep core tight!

    That there is one really incomplete list of bodyweight exercises. There are many more exercises that you don't need a gym for than ones that you do need a gym for.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    I think the moral of this thread is use your body-weight.
