Well besides running and biking, I have no lake or pool within a reasonable distance, and the weight room is open in the summer while I am at work. So, while I'm not tryng to bulk up, increased muscle endurance and definition is my goal. Problem is, I have very limited equiptment, including an exercise ball, and some free weights. Think you guys can give me some suggestions for any sorts of exercises that would work?<br><br>
Here's about all I got.<br><br>
Planks - Back, front, and both sides.<br>
Crunches - Normal, sides, and on the ball.<br>
Pushups<br><br>
That's about it...ya it's bad I know.<br><br>
Hopefully you folks can rescue me from my patheticness. <img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif"><br><br>

I have free weights/dumbells. I bought a set at a sporting goods store- i have 3, 5, 8, and 10 lb weights. Sears sell a bunch too.<br><br>
Also, you may want to look into some conditioning DVDs.

Take a look here:<br><a href="http://www.simplefit.org" target="_blank">www.simplefit.org</a> and here:<br><a href="http://www.crossfit.com" target="_blank">www.crossfit.com</a><br><br>
Both safe for work. The first site is a scaled down version of the second one, a beginning point if you may. These workouts require very little equipment and can be done in the garage, track, parking lot, anywhere. they are both great a getting you into the shape that you want.
