Ok, sit in a good sturdy chair and hold onto the seat of the chair with your hands next to your outer thighs. (You don't have to use a chair, but whatever you use make sure it will not tip over). Let all your weight rest on your arms so that you lift your butt up off the seat. Straighten your legs and slide forward untill your butt is off the chair. You must keep your arms and legs straight. You are now in position to do a dip. Bend your arms and lower your butt untill your elbows make a 90 degree angle. Then lift up again using only your arms. As I said before, please make sure you pick a chair or bench that will not tip over.
With your program you will be training your pecs (chest), deltoids (shoulder), triceps (back of upper arm), glutes (butt), quads (thigh), abs (lower front torso), back (upper and lower), and lats (side of torso).
You can do exercises without weights more often than you can do exercises with weights. When you lift heavy weights, you are actually damaging the muscle. This is what casues the soreness you feel after you lift. The general idea is for the muscle to repair itself to be stronger than it was before (hopefully), but it will not get stronger if you don't give it time to repair itself. Since you will not be damaging the muscle as badly you should be able to exercise at least every other day. Let soreness be your guide, never exercise a muscle if it is sore if you want it to get stronger. Jogging is different from strength training. There is nothing wrong with doing it every day. If you are still sore the next day, why don't you split up your exercises into 2 seperate days. Do some exercises on one day, and the rest on the next.
