    Hey, I am 174 CM....73 KG...22 years. (hmmm....what a start) :wavey:

    I am currently just doing 60 Pushups(Divided in 2)

    100 situps (50 being where my my upper body and knees moving in, 50 where my knees remain bent)

    That is morning and evening.

    And then in September I am going to start jogging every morning for 20 minutes with no weights

    And in the evenings I would have 4kg weights on each leg and 2kg weights on each arm.

    My Uni has a small gym, so I might do some dumb bells lifts...not sure. (Prolly not unless you guys think its a good idea)

    My goal is not to loose weight but just to get healthy, and stronger. (Which prolly will mean gain weight no?)

    I am going start playing Rugby in October. (Uni)

    :rofl:

    He's on the right track with the running, since he should try to build up his endurance for rugby. Might want to do more than 20 minutes though :dunno: But the push-ups and sit-ups have to go. Definitely need to lift heavy weight to build strength. And make sure you are getting enough cals/protein.

    nail 2x4s under the drivetrains of those little toaster oven cars you guys have in europe and deadlift them :dunno:

    if you don't have too many heavy weight resources there are a few good links in the stickies on bodyweight training, if all else fails do that till gym time
