Hey everyone, I have decided to get back into shape and stop being a lazy loser. I want to get fit and get into shape, and then hopefully start with jiu-jitsu.

I don't have access to a gym, but I have strength bands, a few 25lb dumbells and an exercise bike. I was just wondering if someone ccould help me out with a starting workout that I can do to gain strength and conditioning and shed some fat so I can get ready to start training.

Thanks so much in advance.
Look around here and the site mentioned above. There's all kinds of stuff you can do with limited equipment. A sandbag might be up your alley, cheap to make and tons of exercises.
Any links on how to make a sandbag and what exercises to do with it?

Pretty versatile. There is a special bag you can buy that has grips and stuff on it. Or you can be hardcore and make your own.

I'm actually putting together a gym in my garage to do some supplemental training and decided to go the sandbag route rather than buy an olympic weight set. I got a few dumbells and a bench cheap off of craigslist. Got a big swiss ball too.

That's it. Pretty sparse equipment. But its all you really need if you know how to use it right. And I am in shape. No need to spend mega bucks on all kinds of equipment.

Check out or too. That, and youtube.
