    Achieving Brad Pitt's Fight Club physique without a gym?

    Hey,
    Been wanting to do this for a while now and finally got the time and motivation to properly work out, problem is I am to cheap for a gym and probably will be for the next couple of months. My question is simple, can one achieve a physique similar to that of Brad Pitt in the movie Fight Club? The reason I chose this specifically for my goal is because I have the same body type and height as Brad Pitt. Issue is I don't know how to properly work out WITHOUT a gym to gain all that muscle, and how to eat proper so as to get to that low fat %.
    So far the only thing I have been doing is the usual pull-ups, push ups, squats, planks crunches and what not and as far as eating concerned trying to avoid sweets and other unhealthy food as much as possible.
    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Answer has a lot to do with where you are starting from. Have you ever worked our or lifted weights before, i.e. do you already have some muscle?

    Simple answer is to get that body you need a to have decent shoulders and a bit of mass development coupled with super low body fat. Keep in mind Pitt was like 6% body fat. You won't be able to sustain that for long (just like Pitt didn't keep it after the movie filmed).

    Losing fat is incredibly simple - eat less than you burn over an extended period of time.

    If you're too cheap to join a gym and expect to achieve a physique like Tyler Durden's in 2 months, I think your motivation to "properly work out" is suspect.

    But in case it helps you replicate it outside of the gym, below is his supposed diet and workout to prepare for the role. IMO unless you're preparing for a role as Tyler Durden, it's not worth doing.

    WORKOUT

    Monday — Chest
    Push-ups — Three sets of 25 reps
    Bench press — 25, 15 and eight reps at 165, 195, 225 lbs
    Nautilus press — 15 reps at 80, 100, 130 lbs
    Incline press — 15 reps at 80, 100, 130 lbs
    Pec deck — 15 reps at 60, 70, 80 lbs

    Tuesday — Back
    25 pull-ups — Three sets to fatigue
    Seated rows — Three sets at 75, 80, 85 lbs
    Lat pull downs — Three sets at 135, 150, 165 lbs
    T-bar rows — Three sets at 80, 95, 110 lbs

    Wednesday – Shoulders
    Arnold press — Three sets at 55 lbs
    Laterals — Three sets at 30 lbs
    Front raises — Three sets at 25 lbs

    Thursday – Biceps & Triceps
    Preacher curls — Three sets at 60, 80, 95 lbs
    EZ curls cable — Three sets at 50, 65, 80 lbs
    Hammer curls — Three sets at 30, 45, 55 lbs
    Push downs — Three sets at 70, 85, 100 lbs

    Friday & Saturday – Cardio
    Treadmill — one hour at 80-90 percent of maximum heart rate

    MEAL PLAN

    Breakfast: Eggs (six whites, seven yolks) and 75g of oatmeal with raisins. Occasionally, Pitt would replace the eggs with a protein shake if his schedule was tight.

    Midmorning Snack: Tinned tuna in whole wheat pita breads

    Lunch: Two chicken breasts, 75-100g brown rice or pasta, and green veggies

    Mid-Afternoon Snack [Pre-Workout]: A protein bar or whey protein shake and a banana

    Post Workout: whey protein shake and a banana

    Dinner: Grilled fish or chicken, brown rice or pasta, vegetables and salad.

    Evening Snack: Casein protein shake or low fat cottage cheese (slow release protein).

    But he didn't use a gym? he just hung out in that ruined house and got in fights all night in the cellar under the bar. Can't you just have lots or bar fights, it would save you the money on gym membership

    Thats a physique you get from smoking a lot of cigarettes, doing a lot of pushups and situps, and hardly anything else, including eating.

    Good luck. Skinny is skinny.
