Alright, so, here's what I got at home: Barbells, dumbbells, treadmill.
I do not feel like dropping cash on a gym that I have to drive to. I have enough time in a week to make a decent work out, though. I was thinking 45 minutes to an hour, mostly curls, bench presses, squats and lifting, then on an alternate day, 60 minutes of running.
Changing my diet up, too; gonna drink lots more water (in fact, probably only water), lots of fish, chicken, and vegetable based carbs.
I also just brought home some Novadex XT, Superpump 250, and Probolic SR, so I should be set.

Anyone have any advice, pointers, or tips? I wanna get ripped by march. Cyro, I'm looking at you.

I'm not too qualified, but I'll give sme advice anyway.

For running, don't just run for 60 minutes, do distance instead. The most brutal way I've found is to sprint as fast as you can and as hard as you can for about fifty feet, stop for thirty seconds, then do it again. Repeat until satisfied.

Guarenteed to help more with that.

You also might want to do more stomach exercises, all of the ones you have listed are either for the arms or the legs.

are you trying to burn fat or build muscle?

Personally, i think those things you bought to supplement your workout (Novadex, etc.) are useless, excessive, and unnecessary. All you need is some whey protein and you'll be set. Changing up your diet is good, but it may also help you to start changing the frequency of your meals. 5-6 smaller portioned meals a day can greatly help your metabolism. You'll want to throw in some fruit into your diet as well.

No need to run for 60 minutes. Vulkar's got the right idea though instead of stopping completely, you should jog. It's called interval training and it'll boost your stamina and it'll help you burn extra calories, even after you've stopped running. Warm up by jogging for 3 minutes, sprint as hard as you can for about a minute, jog for two minutes, then spring again for another minute. Alternate between the sprinting and the jogging. The length of time per interval can change, depending on your preferences and goals. 15-20 minutes is usually a good time to shoot for when interval training, though feel free to increase it if you feel like 20 minutes is becoming too easy for you.

You'll definitely want to work the core a bit. Sit ups and planks can help with that. Finally, if you haven't started it already, start doing deadlifts. They work your core, lower back, arms, and legs.

Just get out and run for an hour a day. It works. I know you said that you don't feel like dropping money for a gym membership. HOWEVER. The YMCA actually has classes set to what you want to happen you get way more with the YMCA than you can ever get.

I've always heard it's best to a set schedule for specific muscles and days, ie: one day do legs only, another day do triceps and shoulders, then biceps and your back, or something along those lines. That way you're giving your muscles some relax time and room for expanding.

Anyways, maybe I can make a challenge here to you to see who can hold to this. I was working out a bit over the last few months and was actually starting to see some great results, started building shape, etc, but work got hellish with 10 hour days and I was just way too tired to make it to the gym. Now I've quit my job to go back to school full time though and even when school starts up I'll have plenty of free time for this. I'm sure come May or whatever I'll probably be in really good shape, I've put on about 20lbs over the last year or two that honestly I kind of needed and now it's time to put them to shape.

A membership of some sort can be really motivating and worthwhile though, with a lot more machines to work with, the potential to maybe meet people, etc. I've been going to my school for this since I can also get some credit out of it.
