    Anyone have any isometric workout routines they recommend? Aside from the obvious of pushups and situps, what would you recommend for someone looking to increase strength and speed who doesn't have the cash to get to a gym or buy much equipment? Any help would be appreciated.

    You don't have to buy much equipment. A sandbag will cost you less than 30 bucks to make, and a barbell and plates will run you less than 200. That's not much equipment or much money at all.

    Between books and rent (I'm in college), I'd be hard pressed to come up with $200 bucks and still eat regularly. The sandbag sounds viable though, thanks.

    Thanks a bunch. The burpees are just like the "up-downs" we used to do on my football team plus the punches. Doing it tabata style will definitely be hella vicious.
