    Hey, I was just wondering...the gym I belong to is like a 20 minute drive from my house, and I don't always have a chance to get there, and I was hoping some of you could give me ideas of what to do at home with very little cost to get a good workout there. I'm moving closer to my gym/work in 2 months but want to do something in the meantime to help get me in better shape. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    DJ

    Check out http://www.rosstraining.com

    First thing that comes to mind: make a sandbag. It gives you nearly limitless options and costs very little.

    Fill a duffel bag with about 100 pounds of sand wrapped up in 5 or 6 garbage bags and duct taped. Shoulder it, squat it, press it, whatever. Also get a car tire and bang on it with a sledgehammer, try for like 100 hits in minimum time.

    Also, get books by Ross Enamait; he specializes in that.

    It's a recurring topic here, so you can either use the search function or just ask more if you have doubts. Good luck.
