    Forgot to mention, they're hexagon-shaped.
    Was thinking more in line of doing some dumbell press and flies, dont know about only 15 pounds though...

    If you want a better chest workout do some dips. I do not have a dip bar so I do them in the kitchen where my countertop meets at a 90 degree angle. Dips pushups and pullups(overhand not under hand) will build your upper body pretty well. Hold on to those 15's and do some lunges while holding them for some legs. Remember always fully extend on all excercises, i.e lockout your elbows after touching the ground with your chest, otherwise all you are doing is cheating yourself without completing the full range of motion.

    I do diamond push-ups, although I don't make my hands actually touch. I spread them out just a few inches so it works with my wrists properly, and like stated above, to actually get the muscles that matter to feel the burn from it.

    You wanna do a push-up that will really give you upper body strength, maybe try a 'wall push-up'. Those are bad-***. I remember once we were trying to lift a wall when we were putting together a frame for a house, and I had a nearly impossible time helping lift it, because I never pushed up in that direction before.

    Basically, you do a headstand against a wall (with a thin pillow or mat to prevent grinding your scull), and push up that way. I bet you can't do more than once when you first start... ;)


    A thousand pairs of eyes pierce the mist,
    glaring despondently back at you...

    ^When i was 20 kg lighter and i did gymnastics i used to do those with 1 arm (only 3 with right arm and 2 with left arm were my maximum) and do a bunch (15+ easily) with both arms.
