Which set did you get btw? I was thinking about perhaps doing some weight training at home on my off days from running.

You can do a lot with your own bodyweight. Would recommend doing some of the 'PE with Joe' stuff.

:p

I've been doing it every morning for the past few weeks and it's good fun. (I recognise not everyone considers exercise "fun", though)

For sure, this. I've been doing everything recently with bodyweight plus a couple of shopping bags with cans in them and still managing to successfully destroy myself most days. Some things are easier than others without access to properly heavy weights (legs is surprisingly easy as you can just do one leg at a time; back not so much) but it's all doable. Plus you can make it more strenuous by doing things slower and/or upping the reps/sets. I'm doing every exercise at the moment with a four second eccentric stage (e.g. do the actual bicep curl quickly as you can but then take four seconds to slowly lower your arm back down to your side again) and it really lowers the weights you need.

This is my current set of workouts, all done as three sets of 10, if it's at all useful. In each 'set' you'd do 10 reps of both exercises then take a minute and a half rest. Do that three times then move onto the next pair of exercises.

Chest and biceps
- Decline push up off the couch
- Dumbell incline bicep curl using shopping bags of beer cans while sitting at an angle on two chairs pushed together

- Deep push up with hands on two dining chairs and feet up on the couch
- Hammer curl with shopping bags of beer cans

- Flat bench chest fly with shopping bags of beer cans on my coffee table
- Standing inner-biceps curl with shopping bags of beer cans

- Push up
- Bicep curl with shopping bags of beer cans

Legs (for anything that hits one leg a time, do ten on each leg)
- Weighted squats wearing a backpack filled with cat litter and holding shopping bags of beer cans
- Split squat holding a bag of cat litter in each hand and with a foot up on the couch behind me

- Steps ups on the coffee table holding shopping bags of beer cans
- Straight leg deadlift holding shopping bags of beer cans

- Reverse lunges holding shopping bags of beer cans
- Prone leg curl with a resistance band

- Wall sit for 40 seconds
- Walking lunges holding shopping bags of beer cans

Back and triceps
- Dumbell single arm bent over row holding shopping bags of beer cans
- Bench dips with feet up on the couch

- Dumbell Standing Row using a backpack filled with cat litter bags
- Diamond push up

- Resistance band pull against the corner of my coffee table
- Bodyweight triceps extension against my fireplace

- Back extension
- Overhead tricep extension using resistance bands

Shoulders and abs
- Pike press
- Russian twist with bag of cat litter

- Upright row with rucksack containing cat litter bags
- Leg raises on coffee table very slowly

- Shrug using a cat litter and 16 beer cans in each hand
- Ab crunches

- Dumbell front raise with eight cans of beer in each hand
- Dumbell lateral raise with eight cans of beer in each hand
- Standing rear delt dumbell raise with eight cans of beer in each hand
