I volunteer at a local prison near my college. We do some education programs, but I also thought spending some time getting a fitness program running would be great. A lot of the guys seem really out of shape, and I know that strength training has had great physical and mental benefits for me so I think they would get a lot out of it.
However, the gym is low on equipment. NO BARBELLS OR FREE WEIGHTS. I am going to talk to the athletic department at school and try to get them to donate an old barbell and some weights.
Otherwise the gym has: some sort of universal gym with leg curl, chest press, lat pulldown, row etc. A cable cross over/ pullup bar type thing. an ab wheel, a bunch of medicine balls, a bench that could be used for back extensions.
I was thinking something along the lines of a 2 or 3 day program:
front squat (cleaning the bar)
Clean and press
Circuit on the universal gym
clean + push press
Abs + Back extensions
Clean + Press
What do you guys think?
