Routine without weights

Hi everyone!

I'm still new to this place, but I'm liking the forums alot. I have put together a routine for myself, it's really not that great, but I'm still learning.

Here it is, I'm just looking for a little feedback on it. (Oh yea, there aren't many weights involved because I only have 2 15 pound free weights (which is like 7kg, I think)) Also, keep in mind that I only want to work my upper body, so I do this same routine every day (for now, at least). Oh, and don't forget that I am very scrawny, so this is alot for me!

25 Push-ups (or until failure)

Rest for 30 seconds to 1 min.

Crunches for 5 minutes

Rest for 30 seconds to 1 min.

Weight lifting with the 15 lb. weights, I start out in a standing position, and bring the weights from my waist to my chest (don't know what it's called :|) until 'failure'

Rest again

10 push ups x 5 (with a good 30 second to 1 min. break in between)


Weights until failure again


Crunches for 5 more minutes

Then I'm done. This can take anywhere from 15-40 minutes, because I'll occasionally add something new in or not do as many of an excercise. When I'm done, I don't really feel any good pain, just worn out. Maybe more should be added to my routine? This is one reason I came to the experts. Any feedback is good feedback for me :).

    Can you not get to a gym? Why do you not want to train your legs?

    Let it sink.... I can swim.
