Hello :) I am an ex-gymnast (I stopped training 10 years ago) and currently a coach so I'm definitely a strong advocate of bodyweight training! I have recently started working on my own handstands,…Continue

Hi everyone, I'm new to this site and the timing is perfect...coming back toward 811 after a couple years away, and just read the You Are Your Own Gym book, so to find this group was sweet! I just found the You Are Your Own Gym iPhone app and am supposedly :O about to start the 10-week suggested program. :) Anyway, hi y'all.

Thanks Nate and Paul for advice and links...will google convict conditioning for the book. :)

Annette, I would start out by looking at a fitness YouTube channel like Yuri Elkaim or Zuzana Light:



Even if your indoor space is too small for some exercises you can always go outdoors when the weather is nice.

Annette, my favorite body weight exercises are push-ups, pull-ups, pistol dips, regular dips with a couple of low and stable dining room chairs and hand-stand push-ups against a wall. These may be a bit advanced for some, but a few of them can be modified. Also, found a copy of Convict Conditioning in PDF for free when I did a search on Google. It has exercises starting from easy and working up to awesome.

Hello to all,

I'm new and would like some suggestion on how to start using your body as your gym.  Live in a very tight space about 3ft by almost 6ft area that would be the salon/living room (live on boat, that would be the only space that's roomy enough). Right now all I do is walk 40mins a day, really have no idea how to start, help would be appreciated... Thanks

Comment by Milly on March 17, 2012 at 12:09am
I just bought convict conditioning! It seems geared towards men only but I really want to gain strength and stamina. I just started a walk to run program too. I'm super excited :-)
