    I really don't have a lot of time to get to the gym right now other than weekends due to the fact my job KILLS me daily.

    I was wondering what I could do at home to burn fat - gain muscle. I don't need to lose anymore than 10-15 lbs of fat. And I don't need to be super broly.

    I don't have ANYTHING at home to use as far as weights....simply because I have a gym membership. I was just wondering what you'd guys would suggest to a semi broly? :x:

    Can't do much w/o weights. I guess you could try the thug workout if you got bars and shit.

    You need weights to actually burn "fat"? I'm not trying to tone at home...just burn fat.

    if your health is important to you, you'll find time. go take a run at lunch or something. bring some barbells to your desk and do some small shit wheen you have free time.

    small shit like that i guess.

    if its a priority to you, you will find time to get to the gym. wake up early or go to the gym late. but judging from this thread, it obviously isn't a priority in your life.

    You can do bodyweight exercises like squats, dips (using two chairs) and maybe work up to stuff like handstand push ups and one legged squats. It won't be anywhere near as effective as going to a gym though. At the very least, I think that you should get some weights and a bench for at home. Maybe a chin up bar too.

    Recently I've been working on some "gymnastics exercises" that someone posted awhile ago. I am to the point where I can almost pull myself into a handstand from a crouching position (lose balance near perpendicular to the floor)...2 pushups with my legs held out at about a 60 degree angle from the ground. It is some very tough stuff that you can do at home but it will only work a bit of the upper body...of course how tough this is depends on your body weight. I'm at 190 and it is similar to doing 190lb incline presses but you have to hold your balance and keep your core tight to hold your body in position.
