So I'm taking a break from boxing and am designing  few bodyweiht workouts for myself to do. I will be concentrating mostly on pecs and shoulders, the main exercise I will use will be push ups and pull ups. I'm gonna use a rosstraining workout tomorrow;

1 min push ups
1 min weighted punching
1 min (dont know name, hunch overarms straight in front, move arm to side till it is parralel with ground)
1 min pull up

No rest in between, once I cycle through the circuit you do every exercise for 45 secs, then 30, then 15. Only takes 10 mins but a killer.

I'm then going to do a circuit of ab work, 20 full sit ups, 20 crunches, 20 leg ups, doing this two to three times.
I do lots of leg work in training so hopefully this will get me in good shape. In time I may get back my one arm push up ability and start doing handstand push ups.

Hi Wutang,

Maybe I am old-fashioned, but I was always told to work the whole of the body:

Either in a workout three times a week, (Every other day)
break the routines into two and exercise every day, alternating the routines. (Not so boring)

Just so you have a week of covering the whole muscle areas. (Not forgetting the cardio-vascular system)  Run up and down the stairs a few times!

I am losing weight that way after a knee replacement. (Too much soccer when I was a kid!)

best of luck.
