    I'm new, and I want a good workout to lose body fat in 2 months

    Hey, I'm a complete beginner in terms of working out, I used to do boxing a few years ago, and what I want to do is lose body fat fast. I height at 5'8, and I weight at about 152 lbs. I estimate that I'm about 15-18% body fat. I want to lose to about 7-9% body fat. I don't have access to a gym for the time being, and the only equipment I have available is:

    Jump Rope
    Dumbbells (20lbs)
    Yoga Mat

    So I'll need a good workout that I can do at my own home, and that includes bodyweight exercises, like push ups, squats, etc. I will also do some cardio like jogging/walking on the mornings. I will eat as healthy as I can, that means no sodas, junk food, etc. Any good workouts ideas?

    Losing and gaining weight is entirely dependant on your diet. Have a read through this thread:

    limiting yourself to only bodyweight exercises is going to hinder your ability to hold onto much muscle/strength that you may have while in a calorie deficit

    trying to be below 10% bodyfat while not competing in some sort of sport doesn't make much sense to me (especially at your size)
    Goals:

    1.5 bw Bench
    2.0+ bw Squat
    2.5 bw Deadlift
    Gain 20 lbs

    I didn't said that I was going to limit myself to only bodyweight exercises, but that I could include them. I can also workout with dumbbells. What I'm trying to say is that the workouts must be things that I can do without any equipment, with the exceptions of dumbbells, and a jump rope.

    The reason I want to get to a low body fat is for my abs to show. Don't I need a low body fat for that? I obviously need to start working them as well.
