    Ok, so I work full time and live out of the area of a gym. I bought a set of 20 kg dumbbells. Now I don't wanna be ripped. Sadly due to laziness I've gained back about 10 kilos. So my main goal is too lose that. but I also wanna start toning my body. Preferably ending up with bigger pecs and arms.

    I'm after a full body bodyweight/dumbbell workout from home. But can't find nothing! Help!??

    Great Body Weight Training resource.
    Books, video, and a Great App with video, HIIT / Tabata timer.

    I use the App when I am traveling or can't get to the gym. Love his stuff.

    Maybe Jumpman Josh can help you out - I think he does mostly body weight exercises and outdoor stuff. And he looks good.

    It's actually not as hard as you would think. If you have a set of dumbbells it's even easier. But if you don't there's a lot of body weight stuff you can do. I know about 30 different pushup variations alone.

    I found the Mens Health Big Book of Exercises to be really helpful because it gives you a lot of things that can be done at home, with a lot of variations. With that said it's definitely not the bible of homework out stuff, but it does help.

    I like working out at home better honestly. Your own music, your own equipment and no one to annoy you. icon_biggrin.gif

    I used the Strength training anatomy workout book by Francis Delavier. It's specifically geared to home workouts.

    Worked for me icon_smile.gif

    I'm old and gorgeous because I bought some weights, some dumbell bars and an arm curl bar, and built a trapeze. You just have to do research and think a bit. And the moisturizing.

    Menshealth Home Workout Bible. You can probably get it for cheap used on Amazon. Great resource.
