There's a 7 minute workout app which is good to get you started, this doesn't involve any gym equipment.

Alternatively, you could do press ups, sit ups, lunges, squats, dips using a chair, burpees, chair step ups etc all without the need for equipment

Brucie get a couple of light kettle bells 
Use them, and maybe 100 press ups three times a week

You'll soon discover muscles you didn't know were there.

I've found my grip strength has come back using the bells
Just use correct form for the lifts and don't bother about lifting huge weights
I've got an 8kg and a 12kg, more than enough for me
And you can use them for shoulder presses, biceps, triceps etc, without risking injury
Just up the reps

The 100 press ups alone is a good workout and costs you nothing

All good exercises Mark - but these exercises means that you'll hit the ball even harder, then I would need more protection if at non-strikers end!!  :(

Good little exercise would be:

60s press ups 20s rest, 60s sit ups 20s rest
50s press ups 20s rest, 50s sit ups 20s rest 
40s press ups 20s rest, 40s sit ups 20s rest
30s press ups 10s rest, 30s sit ups 10s rest
20s press ups, 20s sit ups, 10s press ups, 10s sit ups no rest.

Get the heart pumping, you could then do the same with chair dips and step ups then squats and lunges.

I was 18st 8 at easter, started eating better and going to the gym, group training classes where we do 2 sessions of weights with a cardio finish then a really gassy session on a friday. I got down to just under 16st quite easily. Had a pretty bad September eating and drinking and a few lbs have crept back on. Back on it from yesterday, doing stuff at home as well as the gym. I also bought my daughter a new bike so we can go out on a weekend, she managed 6 miles on Sunday which isn't bad for only being 6!

My goal is to get another stone and a half off to get down to around 14st-14st7, that would be over 4 stone off total, which isn't bad

Top stuff JB Great Goals - I'm sure you will smash that goal!

You mean that 80% dark cocoa business?

You must be having a laugh, that stuff is bitter and disgusting - what I should be doing is reaching for the bananas or nothing at all - I don't need it, it's all in the mind!!!!!!!!!!

Don't know about brucie, but that would kill me! Ha

Maybe start at the 20,s ??

We did something similar to that in the gym after doing
25 KB swings (24kg), 25 squats (2no 12kg KB's), 25 shoulder press (2no 12kg KB's), 25 thrusters (2no 12kg KB's), 25 Burpees jumping over the kettle bells then a 400m
15 of everything then a 400m run
10 of everything then a 400m run
5 of everything then a 400m run!

I was absolutely broken on friday morning after this!! Felt great a couple of hours later though!

Hmm
That's serious training that.

Maybe in my youth, but nearing 50 now, that would finish me off!!

You keep that up, without injury, and the balls gonna go miles with those monster  bats you use
