bodyweight exercises are great. this includes push ups, pull ups, dips, chin ups. if you are moving around your own bodyweight, your body will want to keep the muscle and get rid of the fat. it wants to keep the muscle so that you can continue to move yourself around. and it wants to get rid of the fat to make you lighter and easier to move around. note that these are hard exercises. you wont see too many people doing pull ups in the gym. especially bodybuilders, because they have weighted themselves down with muscle. i started out only being able to do 1 pull up. would go to failure each workout, and would periodically be able to do another rep. alot of gyms have machines that are weight-assisted, so they provide a counter-balance and make you lighter. use these machines until you can manage 1 unassisted rep, and then get rid of that crutch.
