    Talking Poor Man WorkOut/Diet Suggestions

    The facts:
    I'm a poor student. I would most likely not be buying whey/protein and all those other powder stuff. I cant afford a gym membership (and I don't want one why pay money to sweat and lift other peoples property away from my house)

    I just realized that I am over weight (according to my BMI)


    I'm:
    Height: 5 feet 10.5inches (~180cm)
    Weight: 187lbs (~85kg)
    Age:..... 25
    Location: Netherlands

    I would like to get my body toned. I want to tone mostly my upper body (abs, chest, biceps) for now,
    I have a torn miniscus in my left knee thats still heeling, but as I live in the Netherlands I ride a bike everyday (and it still hurts at times)

    SO WHAT CAN ONE SUGGEST THAT I DO?


    Thanx in advance.

    well, isn't there any athlete clubs at your campus?
    I suggest that you start to count calories. check the nutrition thread and stickie about that.
    Start doing bodyweight excersises like push up, pull ups, dips, squats ( you can use a broomstick and make mock barbell squats for honing in the form) and save money for a membership fee where they have a proper set of barbells and racks..

    Ordering in bulk, online, non-designer protein is cheap actually, I get mine for £13~$20 per kg, which is really cheap in the UK, (America has it cheap compared to here). Which will last me around 4 weeks.

    I would suggest buying some second hand weights, all you need is some dumbbells to start with, preferably ones with adjustable weight, so you can buy more discs when needed.

    I've started of with a simple routine daily in the mornong.

    40 sit ups
    30 pushups
    30 squats (without weights)
    50 jumping jacks
    5 (attempt to do 5 pull ups on a tree)
    10 chin ups (these are easier than pull ups)
