    Getting fit- no experience no equipment

    I live in the middle of nowhere. No martial arts dojos, no gyms. I used to live somewhere and studied Soo Bahk Do for a few years (the no experience I'm referring to is on general fitness) but I'm out of practice and out of shape. I'm going to be moving to the city in a year or so, two years from now at most, where I'll hopefully be able to learn some Bujinkan (a long time dream.) I'm looking for advice on how to get fit so I can do well when I start studying martial arts again. I don't have any equipment except 2 10 lb. dumbells. Can somebody advise me on what I can do to get back into shape where I'll be strong enough to kick butt in 1-2 years. I know this is kind of vague- my body type is tall and lean. I have little muscle mass. Nerdy level strength. Can someone list out some exercises I could do, give me a basic routine? I'll elaborate on my fitness level more if needed.

    There have been some threads where people talked of some fucked-up-crazy fitness routines including climbing trees and throwing logs in the woods. Do a search and you will find.

    Pushups, pull ups (palm out and palm in), sit ups, V-ups, burpies. Do three sets of each the maximum number of reps you can do for all 3 sets. Do cardio such as run, ride a bike and or swim.

    There a couple of threads specifically about body mass excersices on here that are really good too.

    Good luck.

    There are also always tapes or dvd's, you might even find some basic stuff regarding the system you are interested in learning. You can also check in the local free newspaper for organizations or clubs that meet. I just found an ARMA group that meets about 4 miles from my house that way. Since it's so close and they meet on a Sunday I thought I'd check it out mostly out of curiosity.

    Just get creative and look you will find something.

    If you have a DVD player, I recommend the Pit Workout, by John Hackleman.
    http://www.thepitworkout.com/

    The price is right, only $19.95 and the 2 DVD set includes 3 separate 1 hour workouts, plus some extras like a section on strecthing and some brief instructionals on punching and kicking.

    I think the workouts are great and I use variations of them at by school. Once I get aroudn to it, I plan to write full review for the site. Until then, if you have any questions just ask.
