I'm trying to get into shape, and since I have no one to ask, I'd like to ask you guys.

This is a very short but complete list of exercises I'm doing. Please point to a muscle I'm not making use of or maybe advise a new exercise for me to try.

the Burpee,
leg lifts,
and dumbbell curls (I don't like using weights, but I don't have a pull up bar)


You could try...

LEGS: walking lunges, squats, heel raises, hamstring lifts, power lunges/squats

ABS: there are so many types of crunches you can do, hollow holds & rocks

BACK: arch holds, arch ups

ARMS: there are many types of push ups you can do, dips, lat raises w/your weights, overhead curls w/your weights

I hope this helps. If you need more ideas just ask...I'll be glad to help.

BTW, keep up the running...cardio is the best thing you can do for your body.
