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)
Height: 5 feet 10.5inches (~180cm)
Weight: 187lbs (~85kg)
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..my workout log -> http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=147657213

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.
