    Since I just bought a car, I have not enough money to spare as a college student for a gym this summer.

    What can I do at home so I don't loose everything I gained in the 3rd quater of college?

    I have a bench + 1 Straight Bar + two adjustable dumbels (Total weight of 165lbs) and a pullup bar.

    Even though I bench more then 165lbs, think just doing as many reps as possible will help maintain? Will stopping deadlifts n squats for 3 months hurt me that badly? I will be able to deff improve my pullups though!

    Give me some idea's or a new routine for my setup, until I get back to college.


    At College I was doing this...

    Tuesday – Chest/Tris/Abs*

    Barbell Bench Pres- 5x5
    Incline Barbell Bench Press 3x12 or Inline Dumbbell Bench Press - 3x12
    Dumbbell Bench Press w/ Twist or Flyes-3x12

    Facecrushers w/ EZ-Bar - 3x12 each set is directly followed by Close-Grip Bench Press - till Failure
    Bent-Over One-Arm Dumbbell Triceps Extension or Cable Pull downs – 3x12

    Wednesday – Cardio

    Thursday – Back/Bis/Abs

    Deadlifts – 5x5
    Wide Grip Pull Ups - 3xFailure
    Seated Cable Rows - 3x12
    Bent Over Two-Arm Barbell Row or One Arm Dumbbell Rows - 3x12
    Close Grip Pull Downs – 3x12

    Incline Dumbbell Curls – 2x6-8
    EZ-Bar Curls – 2x6-8
    Close Grip Preacher Curls – 2x6-8

    Friday – Cardio

    Saturday – Delts/Traps /Forearms

    Seated Dumbbell Press – 3x12
    Front Dumbbell Raise – 3x12
    Side Lateral Raise – 3x12
    External Rotation – 3x12

    Upright Barbell Row – 3x12
    Dumbbell Shrug - 3x12

    Standing Palms-Up Barbell behind the Back Wrist Curl - 3x12
    Seated One-Arm Dumbbell Palms-Up Wrist Curl - 3x12

    Sunday – Legs

    Squats - 5x5
    Leg Press - 3x12
    One-Legged Calf Raise - 3x12
    Stiff-Legged Deadlifts – 3x12


    Monday – Rest


    *do abs every other day, or everyday, whatever you want.

    push car around, deadlift car, bench press car, get chicks in the car, bang them for cardio, then kill them, and bench press them, then eat them for protein.

    So you have a barbell and weights for it? Am I reading that right? And if you have 65 lb dumbbells, you can do a squat/deadlift sort of combo with those.

    you're saying there is NO WAY you can come up with the couple hundred dollars that would be required for a 3-month gym membership?? You must not want it badly enough, or you'd figure something out.

    Are you kidding? Of course he goes to the gym. That thug workout stuff is bullshit. There is no way you can do jungle gym pull ups to get that swole. The guy has got to be on all kinds of gear, there are just natural limits and he's waaaaaaaaaaaay passed that.

    Yeah I'm sure he went to the gym at one point but I doubt he's on any gear, a lot of black guys are genetically gifted like crazy.

    There's a lot of back stuff you can do with a pull up bar. Do wide grips, chin ups, close grips, etc.

    You can also do DL's if you have a barbell, I don't know why you say you can't (with 165 it won't likely be strength training, but it's beter than nothing)

    For chest/tris/shoulders, do DB presses, tricep extensions, bb bench (if you want, might as well stick to db's). Also you could do diamond pushups, wide/decline pushups, etc.

    For abs stick to leg raises and crunches, make sure you do at least a few sets of twisting variations so you can get an oblique workout as well.

    Squatting or doing leg lifts with what you've got will be tricky. Try this. Put as much weight as you want on your DB's (or as much as you can fit). Deadlift it up, hold db's at your side, and squat it.
