    I've been studying for the California bar exam for the past two months, so I haven't been making it to the gym at all. To break the monotony, every two or so hours, I creep between the bookshelves and bust out 50 quick pushups, doing around 200 or 250 a day. My triceps and chest are still in good shape, but biceps have been showing the effect of no gym lately.

    Anyone know of some good bicep exercises that don't require much weights?

    naw, bro. open that book in the middle, thumb in the crease and fingers on binding. Start curling. If someone walks into the aisle just pretend your reading some random shit, book's already open.

    chinup = supinated grip
    pullup = pronated grip

    Just mix in a workout. You can spare an hour a day. You can only study so much.

    hide a 2x4 on the top of a bookshelf. when nobody's looking, turn it so it's laying across the top of two bookshelves. do your pullups on it, between the aisles.
