    i live in the city and my apartment is just one room with a bed and a desk.

    i have no place to put anything else.

    the local nyc sports club charges me 70$ a month and 100 for application fee :ugh2:

    i cant afford that, what can i do in my small apartment besides, push ups?

    i cant think of anything, can anyone else?

    yoga ball (to use as a bench) + dumbell handle + plates is your least expensive choice for home. Your best choice might be to find a community centre near by with a free weight room.

    pullup bars are pretty cheap.

    shit, bars are not that expensive, just have to incrimintally buy more plates as your lifts increase.

    A yoga ball is a good bench until you start doing some decent weights, but academy sells cheap ass benches, mine was only like $30.

    Get involved with a good martial art.

    it will cost you less and you will be in much better shape. The art should be a fighting art though. A grappling art such as Jiu Jitsu or a fighting art such as Muay Thai or Krav Maga will get you into "fighting fit" in a hurry. Large muscles not needed, just your dedication.
    You can go to the gym later if you feel the need.

    push ups and other exercises can at least help you gain some strenght and get used to a routine but if you want to gte noticeable improvements you need to lift hard. Try like 100 push ups, running, crunches for a month, that could eventually help you to get used to the exercise, after that you'll need somethng more serious.

    all the books you can strap on is barely going to match the weight of a bare olympic bar

    hang from a tree limb and do upside down deadlifts

    find a thick limb and stack books or boards or your car under it until it's at navel-height, squat under it and lift/bend it upwards

    do the same thing until laying flat, the branch is on your chest and bench it
