Thanks, Chris and Steven,

Do you know of any resources for developing strength through bodyweight work? Websites, books, etc?

I'm woefully weak in my upper body, which is why I was so excited about an organized approach to weight lifting. (My gym essentially began offering strength training classes.)

I can barely do a handful of real, good pushups. I'm pretty beat up, I guess. Pushups hurt my elbows 'cause I have a tendinitis going on there. At least I can start with pushups, pullups and air squats. (Those are pretty much all the body weight exercises I can do...no HSPUs, pistols, etc. yet.)

Sheesh, 50 years, 50,000 miles and the warranty's up. I need some body work!
