    So, one of my new year's resoutions is to begin getting into shape after five years of getting practically no exercise at all. I need advice.

    I'm currently doing a program where I don't have access to a gym or home exercise equipment, but I want to start getting myself prepped for when I'm finished so that I can begin more rigorous exercise with some base foundation.

    I currently struggle with completing thirty pushups, so that gives you an idea as to just how out of shape I am. Don't really know jack about exercising, and right now all I'm doing is daily running, crunches, and pushups. What sort of exercises can I do that don't require equipment to help become a bit stronger (in all areas)?

    The hotel workout doesn't require any equipment other than ordinary things you probably have surrounding you at home.

    If you ever go to a gym, ask an employee to give you a tour of the equipment and show you how to use everything. They may even give you a workout to start with.

    I've done the Hundred Pushups and 200 Situps programs on hundredpushups.com. I am doing the pushups routine again, but just downloaded the app for their "Ripped in 7 Weeks" program. The best thing about all their apps/programs is that none of them require any special workout equipment, it can all be done in your own home doing pushups, squats, situps, pullups, lunges, etc. The apps help assess where you should start and plan out a program to get you to the goal with exercises, number of reps, etc and track your progress.

    Check it out.
