Make me a routine from these items please!

Hi all,

After being out of the gym for a year, I decided enough was enough, and started walking a lot, doing a bit of cycling, and cleaned up my diet.

As the weight loss progressed nicely and I stated to look less out of shape, I felt the need to start lifting again, but the only problem is that for work purposes I'm currently living somewhere for the next few months that has no local gym, but a large 'chain' gym that wants me to pay £40 a month for the next 12 months regardless of the fact that I won't be there to use it...

But, the good news is I have a large livingroom floor in my accommodation and I also brought the following items with me in my van, for use in this house:







and some swivel press up handles:


My main goals are upper body strength and size excercises, as the cycling is currently doing my legs good.

So what can I do to get the best out of the above?

You guys can probably think of more inventive routines than I can!

Many thanks.

    Id say focus on main big lifts, also youre probably going to want a squat rack, although they can be done with lower weights by lifting the barbell above your head, or even dumbbell squats but wont be able to go too heavy.
     
    Youre best bet is maybe to look at a full body routine, based mainly aroudn compound with an isolation or 2 if wanted,
    an example day could look like:
     
    Deadlift
    Overhead press
    Pull ups (would get a pull up bar too imo)
    + any isolations if you like, (curls, close grip bench etc)
     
    Or take a look at the articles section as loads of stuff on there to give you some great ideas

    For a few months you would be fine just dead lifting and lunging without squats imo...
