Routine 1 is a good workout for folks who have minimal equipment, and/or who are just starting out with a basic dumbbell set.

Nevertheless I thought it might be helpful to compile some ideas for you.

Workout for the time poor

Why “I don’t have time” is no longer an excuse. There are 168 hours in a week. I know you can find 3 or 4 to haul your ass off the couch.

No weights? No problem!

So let’s say you live in Upper Armpit, South Dakota, or on top of a mountain in the Himalayas, and there are no gyms for 500 miles around. Or, let’s say you’re a complete cheapskate and don’t want to pay $50/month to the local chrome ‘n’ tone Fluffy Fitness. Or, let’s say that you’re agoraphobic and haven’t left your house in 13 years. Whatever the case, it is important to remember that you don’t need weights to get a good workout.
