    The difference I found is after 3 weeks of daily pushups,the chest muscles and triceps get firm. trust me your appetite increases , Be careful not to gobble up all the food. But if you train urself with a 5kg dumbell , u can see a rapid change in growth of muscles. Sit ups helps to strengthen the butt and hips.

    These exercises can build your muscular endurance, but not too much with your strength. It is important that your muscles can manage your body weight, but you need more overload than your body weight if you are looking to gain muscular size.

    If you are not able to go to a gym to weight train, you can make resistance equipment for lifting on your own. Start with old milk jugs filled with water or sand, for example.

    Yes they can help build muscle but as everyone else will say, its gonna take a good diet & some aerobic exercise to really get you on your way.

    New years resolution perhaps ?

    Absolutely. But you have to do them regularly and also increase the reps as you get stronger. Good luck.
