I can’t afford a gym membership and can’t build a home gym. Can I still gain muscle?” — Peter V., Chicago, IL
Weights are so popular because anyone can use them—but, believe it or not, there was a time when barbells and dumbbells didn’t exist and people (mostly gladiators and Spartans, I imagine) still got ripped and strong.

A bodyweight training regimen will work, provided you have a few objects to use as tools to help you make the best use of your own weight. Pullups and rows on a bar, tree limb, or sturdy pipe will work your back and biceps; pushups and dips on playground equipment will cover your chest, shoulders, and triceps; and squats, lunges, and jumps (preferably onto a box to start) will strengthen your legs.
