It seems that these days fitness and the gym have become popular again (at least, in my part of the world), so naturally, some of my friends and acquaintances started going to the gym and motivating me to join them. Thing is, I have this slight heart issue - tachycardia caused by a piece of muscle growing the wrong way or something - so I'm not allowed to lift weights. That is to say, I don't like the gym very much either - when I see the people there, I get the picture of 1) low self-esteemed people who want everyone to like them, so they do what's hip, and 2) douches who have all the money. Now I don't really care about either group, but I know for a fact that I do need to buff-up a bit - without lifting weights.

Can anyone suggest anything to me?

What's a good pushup\ pull-up\ whatever routine for getting some visible muscles that actually work?

Thank you!

If you are not allowed to lift weights, what are you allowed to do?

general athletics

Then running, swimming and cycling.

Are you allowed to run? 

At any rate, I recommend doing squats, pushups, lunge, sit-ups or crunches, and pullups, then as many burpees as you can.

Yes, but I hate running :O
I like hiking and dancing though :)

Eh.. ah excuse why you shouldnt do it, isnt a reason not to do it :P

true, true

Is it fitness or aesthetics you want?

a bit of both

Pretty shallow view of people that use the gym. Specially from someone asking how to "get buff".

Lunk alarm!

perhaps, perhaps
