    But realisticly if you don not have the money for food, weights and will not join a gym then you might aswell just find something else to do

    Start saving up for those weights, if you actually want to achieve a little bit more in building up your body. And while you are saving up, work with your bodyweight. There is a good bunch of exercises using nothing except your bodyweight and ground, which is free. Google those, if you're not lazy and want to keep yourself in shape, you'll find those very useful and not really easy to do the first time.

    as adonis said, it takes a lot more than just weights, if you can't afford the weights, then a good diet won't be afforded either

    Oh, thnx guys!!! you wouldn't believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!! i saw a couple of weights for £3. yes!!! at a charity shop. someone got to them before me though. Guess i'll have to spend some dosh. Thnx for being understanding. MY mom takes care of the diet though, luckily. It's just the way she feeds me, lots of protein. You've all really helped, now i'm thinking of where to look next........ what sort of excercises are best?

    weights are expensive because China dominate the Iron industry and it needs to be shipped in and the obvious problem with that is weights weigh a lot! so it's just all shipping.

    well i think

    That's quite true, i see offers online of a decent amount of weights in the region of say... £20 but when you add in the shipping, your looking at almost double the cost. it's annoying!

    All you need is a pull up bar to get ripped.

    Yeah, you can actually get the equipment quite cheap direct form the Chinese factories. I've seen items like trap-bars going for $55ish.

    Granted, they're not Eleiko or Texas Power bars, but better than just a pull up bar.

    Yes, but it's a university owned facility so it's for staff and students only.
