Core/Chest Work out

I need to work on my core/chest muscles. I've got practically none at all... xD

My dad taught me these push-ups to do to get them, but i'd like to know of other work-outs without weights (I don't have any) to do to work out my core.

its going to take a long time to build strength and size without weights. once you get used to your bodyweight the excercise becomes endurance, rather than strength training.

i suggest you find a gym in your area. start a simple powerlifting routine such as starting strength, and you'll see strength increases like you've never experienced.

<--- the punch that started it all!

My current favirote fighters
Anderson Silva
Junior Dos Santos
Mauricio Rua
Alistair Overeem
Jon Jones

WAR dan hardy, paul daley, ross pearson and terry etim doing it for the britz!
