I've been gaining a few pounds lately, and have been kind of sedenatry. I want to start working out, but can't afford to go a gym now, as I don't have a job. I do have kettlebells, a pullup bar, a trampoline and me though. How can I get shredded using just them? The heaviest weight I have is dual 53 lb kettlebells. I can squat more than that.
I'm 160 and 5'4" male and not really obsese, but soft.
You are good to go. That's more than a lot of prisoner's haha. I jest :) what are your goals? Asthetics mainly? Increased strength? Conditioning? There is a lot you can do. Kettle bell swings. Sumo high pulls. Cleans. Jerks. Snatches. Farmers carries. Turkish get ups. And that's just a few of the kettle bell exercises. Not to mention all you can do body weight wise and on the bar. A good general fitness regimen would include a varied routine, something u can make up as you go using different rep schemes and time constraints. I.e. A circuit of 3x 400m sprints. 50 kettle bell swings for time. Jump ropes are cheap too. And a great tool. Good luck. And a good diet will go a long way.
I have recently incorporated these bodyweight exercises:
Israeli Special Forces Tacfit Challange: springing tripod, swinging plank, spinal rock drop, tactical popup. Also http://www.globalbodyweighttraining.com/ is a great resource for "Animal Flow" bodyweight workouts.
Also if you don't want to buy one find some old electrical or network cable and make yourself a jump-rope. To find the right length you should be able to stand on the cable with both feet and the ends of the cables should just reach your armpits. I bought a good speed-rope myself which I love, but in the office I have a homemade jump-rope made out of pink Cat5 network cable.
you can also check out thetravelingwod.com for simple primarily body weight workouts. There's a ton you can do with KBs and a pullup bar. You can do tons of workouts with KB alone-and then augment with pushups, pullups, toes to bar, maybe some good jump rope stuff--the sky is hte limit.
