    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.

    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 Rosstraining.com or GymJones.com too. That, and youtube.
