Running, providing you have a decent pair of trainers, is a great way of bulding your cardiovascular fitness.
If you have a bicycle, then cycling is also good, and can provide a welcome rest from the jarring impact the knees and lower back get from running.
A length of plastic washing line can be used as a skipping rope, and would cost you pennies.

Push ups work the chest, shoulders and arms, and can be done anywhere. Also, look around for sturdy tree branches, bus stop 'huts' or any other low level area that you can hold on to to do pull ups- they work your back and your arms.
Stomach crunches again require no equipment and can be done anywhere.

Using the above exercises 3-4 times per week, building your volume gradually will give you a good few months worth of challenge to be going on with.

At some point in the near future, you will however need to invest more than time into your exercise to get the most benefit from it. A gym membership/use of weights opens up a great deal of options regarding your workout and the goals you can achieve therein.

For martial arts, you can get away with a decent strenth routine without weights.

Look at doing hindu squats, neck/back bridges, hand stands leading to hand stand push ups, one legged hindu squats, dips, chin-ups, push-ups are hundreds in the variety (hindu, different hand placment , tiger etc.) the list goes on...

Here is a website for you to use.

http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/exercises.htm

Select the body part you want to work and then use the search funtion that says "Sort By Equipment Type?". For you use "Body Weight Exercises Only" and this should give you some to use. Some may not have anything listed under them so look at the ones with weight and see if you can adapt house hold items to help out. Good Luck.

Well did you ever think maybe it's not the money but the drive.. I know where I live the nearest gym is 30 minutes away and my parent would not drive me.. and even if it is money. Sometimes money gets tight and I know with my Family I wouldn't ask my mom for 20 or 25 bucks for a membership to a gym because although I know she would give it to me it would make things harder for her with bills etc.

And really it's none of your buisness as to why he doesn't have the money, or doesn't want to pay for a membership

You can build quite an extraordinary level of strength with nothing but your own bodyweight; don't believe anyone who tells you otherwise. High reps to failure are in order for endurance, low reps of progressively more difficult variations for strength.

Pull up variations (can be done hanging from a doorframe by your fingertips if needs be) : Regular pull-ups, pull-ups from L-hang position, one-arm pull-ups

Pressing movements: Regular push-ups, push-ups with feet elevated, handstand push-ups (either free balancing or with feet on a wall for balance), plyometric push-ups, fingertip push-ups, one-arm push-ups, one-arm, one-leg push-ups, one-arm handstand push ups (!)

Core: Manna progressions (L-sit > V-sit > Manna), Planche progressions (from tuck planche), dragon flag, janda sit-ups, regular sit-ups, isometric tension, any kind of gymnastic hold requiring you to hold your body straight.

Squat variations: Bodyweight squat, one-legged squat, one-legged jumping squat for height or distance or both, one-legged squat with pauses along the way, all kinds of jumping.

Also, as this thread is about low-budget training, not bodyweight only training, I advise you to consider building yourself a sandbag (see here). You can also make yourself a wheel for ab rollouts from the wheel of an old pram or shopping trolley. A homemade skipping rope will serve you well, as Cord suggested. Use your imagination!

azjudoaikijitsu -

Wind your neck in immediately. One more outburst like that and you will be banned right away. I will not tolerate that kind of abuse.

I assumed he was an adult, sorry your mommy and daddy cant drive you to the gym, [censored] you kid, i'll ask what i want



With all due respect, your defensiveness and hostility don't contribute to the thread, detract from your credibility and may even cause your dismissal from the forum. Surely you're better than this?
