Hey, I'm new and wondered if anyone had any major tips? To be honest, I don't eat that much but as a full time student I don't really have money for the gym.

Wondered if anyone had any home exercises they could recommend?

There are lots of good body weight exercises. Crunches, push-ups, and squats are a few of the classic ones that you're probably already aware of, but there are lots of others. You can also take a walk or go for a fun.

I am also a full time student and I do all my exercises at home. On you tube there are lots of exercises you can do. And for the reps you can start at 10 x 3 for example and work your way up.

how to do a killer workout for free all you need is a timer

do 12x 3 minute rounds of shadow boxing alternating stance i.e.left or right leg forward throwing proper punches upper cuts and crosses

rest 3o secs between each round and go all out in each round

by round 6 or 7 you will be dying and sweating

I am surprised that as a full time student you dont have access to a gym at your school. Go in the morning when the rest of the student body is sleeping and you can get a great workout.

Of course, if that is not an option, google body weight workout and you will find lots of exercises you can do at home. Buy a set of resistance bands or dumbbells and you are set. Walk for your cardio or jump rope and you will eventually get where you want to be.

Losing weight should help. Just think of the extra strain the extra pounds are putting on them.

Hello and Help Please
I agree. Gaining 30 lbs in a month when you have actually been doing things to make yourself healthier is alarming to me. The water retention alarms me as well. If your doctor says there is nothing wrong, ...
