Try one-arm pulls ups instead. No not that arm, the other one..

York 20kg Cast Iron Dumbbell Set and Case: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Outdoors (http://www.amazon.co.uk/York-20kg-Cast-Iron-Dumbbell/dp/B000N3T0VE/ref=pd_cp_sg_2/279-3572149-9484622)

Can recommend them. They are atleast 20 pounds cheaper on amazon when compared to the high street.

Yeah, nice. So I'd have to train with one bell to achieve the weight I need, but that's no problem. :)

Well, that depends on what you are trying to achieve. If you are looking to gain muscle, one bell with one arm at a time for three sets (10 reps per set) will be good. If however you are looking to tone your muscle and burn fat around it, I agree, you need two dumbells and alternate between hands every rep!

Either case, I found York Fitness products of very good quality.

Don't get those sandfiller dumbells! :puke:

Are you on GumTree Suity? Exercise stuff often goes really cheap, heavy stuff sometimes practically for free since it's a PITA to get rid of.

Get a chinup bar for the door for chin ups and use the corner of the work surfaces in the kitchen for dips? Overall you can give youself tremendous workouts with just your body weight.

I got hold of large plastic bottles. I think they are used for storing petrol or something. Which I fill with water and train with. A sausage bag from the from the army suplus store, some sand from B&Q, some sandwich bags and you have a sandbag which is a fantastic resource. When you get stronger buy more sand!

I paid a mate £15 to make me a wooden sleigh I put weights in and drag around etc. That works pretty well too.

Make that tricep, singular.

Doing it left handed is just wrong.
