I'll use a big exercise ball every once in awhile, but I typically like to do strength training w/o equipment. Sometimes I'll even you tube a strength training workout for arms, or core and I always find something different to keep me motivated.

I know its a bit stereotypical but you could do spark people workouts - when you need weights use a can or beans or a bottom of water - it's enough if you are beginning and when you need a mat for cushioning on the floor a thick towel is fine but if you need it to be non-slip as for some yoga/pilates exercises it doesn't work. Well done you for getting into strength training - I still struggle.

You can also do any of the sparkpeople workouts and just don't use weights. Since you are beginning, you can focus on proper form until you can get some hand weights or resistance bands.

Calf-raises, push-ups (wall push-ups if regular is too hard), squats, crunches (regular and side and bicycle, burpees, lunges, plank and side-plank.

Look out for cheap fitness equipment (like dumbbell, mats and so forth) in dollar stores, places like walmart and regular convenience stores.

Plenty of things taste as good as being skinny feels. :)

You also may try to search some of the exercises in the database because they show a lot of good strength training ones that use no equipment.

Though I do suggest keeping an eye out for resistance bands on craigslist or on sale because they are an excellent investment. Best of luck!

One day, one step at a time. We will succeed.

I am new to SP and I have never really worked out before. I have a few "Sweating to the Oldies" DVD's but I am not sure how to do the strength training since I have no equipment and going to is not an option at this point. Any ideas? I don't even have weights.

Thanks for any help or feedback.
