    So if you read my profile it says "I'm not an athlete and i haven't been to a gym in god knows how long but i would love to start again. I just need someone to go with because going by myself was a bitch, i hated it. But working out does make me feel better and healthier, and though most people say ill disappear before i gain muscle, im sure that i can disprove them and come out looking good." But i think that the not going to the gym is affecting how I look. Every one says I am too skinny and need not worry, but i do. Hello i think im getting boobs. Lolz.. weird i know, but my chest isnt as flat as it used to, and my abs. forget them, they have disappeared. So my question, again, is 'What can anyone suggest i do at home with no equipment in as short time as possible so that i can look allright for the up comming summer?
    Thanks

    Stand up. Put one foot in front of the other. Walk. Do push ups. Do pull ups. Do stairs. Ride a bike. Stop making excuses for being weak and undisciplined and start being a real man. Take charge.

    Google on workouts without weights. Google on bodyweight exercises. Think about your end goal, and research it appropriately, developing a plan for success, then, implement, and execute, that plan.

    I have only one warning about the Navy Seal and any other military work outs:
    Avoid dips and you do not have to sit ups the way the military requires to pass its standard physical fitness test.

    I work for the VA system and we treat these soldiers all the time. The workouts and tests are designed a LONG time ago without sound scienctific research. THEY ARE PRONE TO INDUCE INJURIES.

    Evertime a soldier who is injured by this type of training and wish to get back to the service and they show me the standards they have to meet (they will not collect their pension and checks if they don't pass) and I just roll my eyes.. Injury city.

    I was just gonna say ... RUN FORREST, RUN!!

    You have two feet ... use them. :)

    Go for a walk; go hiking; just DO SOMETHING.

    And there are workouts for you w/o using weights.

    Dear Housebound:

    Go buy yourself a stablility ball and a video or book that shows you how to do core work on the ball.

    You can do it in your bedroom or while you are watching TV...can help you develop abs, core muscles, etc.

    Then, once you are all cut and handsome, go out and find someone to admire your body.

    Good motivation...

    You seem to be complaining about loosing your muscle mass than anything else...

    You really just cannot gain any muscle mass without resistive training, body weigth or equipment weight, period.

    Forget about the ball and core muscle training if you want to maintain your chest or legs. Core training prevents injuries for other complex athletic activites. It doe not give you mass or burn fat, it does NEITHER...

    And one more thing... Your body is a biomachinery.

    If you can't put in the time or work, you won't get results.

    2 days a week of resistive training with immediate results over a short time is not just a little bit, but quite unrealistic..

    Put in the work and the time. Stop thinking about short cuts.
