    Sports. Pick one, have fun with it. I only "exercised" so much cause it prepared me for the thing I actually wanted to do.....WIN.

    After sports I chose HIT ( Body by Science is a good book to start with)....cause exercising isn't what I live to do. I work very hard for a short time and infrequently so that I can enjoy everything else.

    Thanks for the opinions guys. I think it's about time I change it up. I'll be probably (more than likely) be doing Starting Strength soon

    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Look for groups near you on meetup.com that are focused on fun, outdoor activities. You can cover off exercise, play and socializing all at once.

    That's a great idea. I wish I thought about it myself. And I guess you can find all sorts of groups in different ages.

    My local Meetup.com group just has one or two groups, no sporty/outdoor groups unfortunately

    Looks like I'm not gonna gym it either. My income just won't support it, but once I get a job I'll be squatting and deadlifting like a mad man. Back to bodyweight. Now I just gotta make it fun :P

    What's wrong with squatting and deadlifting with a sandbag? You can make one for free, follow (albeit adapted) versions of starting strength, 5-3-1 or stronglifts and I'll even help you out with advice where I can.

    If it's a choice of sandbag training with a homemade bag or no lifting at all then you really should opt for the former.

    Coach, you may have helped me a great deal. When you first told me about the sandbags at the start of the thread I was skeptical. Now looking into it, all I need is a big duffle bag. A 25kg bag of sand runs for only €5 here - perfect for a while

    I've bought your book buddy, thanks!

    Enjoy it! It very possible to construct a good sandbag strength training program as an alternative to the barbell. I've worked up to a 100kg sandbag clean and press and continue to make progress.

    All the best with the training and please do drop me a line with any questions you might have.

    I'm also happy to check your technique via a video if you want to fire some over to me.
