    when i was in high school i got it in my head to do push-ups and crunch lifts (lie flat on your back with feet 2 inches off ground and hold for 5 minutes) whenever i felt like masturbating. i was working out like crazy and gained 10 lbs of muscle which is a lot for me because i'm naturally thinner.

    before i joined the gym a few years ago i had two ten lb dumbbells. and every other day i'd do curls, lunges, squats, and push ups using the dumbbells as a base. i also did exercises that i don't know techical names for but basically you have arms at your side and lift the weights until your arms make a cross and palms are to the ground, the other one you have palms facing forward and you bring the weights together with your hands at the center of your chest in a half circle motion, and the last one you put one arm on your knee and with the other you bend your elbow and push your elbow toward the back of you like you are passing a baton in a track relay.

    i did this for 6 weeks because i was going to miami beach and i was pretty happy with the results. good luck!

    if your goal is strength, agility, balance, endurance...

    parkour-search for the vids on youtube. using the outdoors as your "gym". If you have a buddy to workout with. this activity speaks for itself especially if you like being outdoors.

    go to the second hand shop-you'll be able to get a bench and most likely all the weights you'll ever need. you'd be surprized what people donate or throw away. check out your local buy and sell, flea markets etc
    one sports store where I live had a weight set
    (300 lbs and olympic bar) for $109.

    are you close to an open area? run-wind sprints etc, plyometrics. go to your local school.

    cycle, hike, skip rope

    exercise ball, as suggested above $7 or $8 at wallyworld. an excellent piece of equipment.

    all sorts of good videos on youtube etc for home workouts.

    be fit
