          We have a couple sets of dumbbells at home, which make a huge difference in what you can do. Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred videos are mostly body-weight exercises with some dumbbell work. Also, this Runner's World IronStrength Workout will whip you into shape.

          Otherwise, if you truly don't want to invest in a couple of sets of dumbbells, planks, air squats, lunges, pistol squats, push-ups, etc. do the trick.

            For body weight exercises, I found "you are your own gym" (seems good, even if author is anti-aerobic exercise ). Also found "convict conditioning". Despite the title, I like the progression from "zero to hero" That the author laid out.

              I do a lot of body weight exercises and a lot with a few sets of dumbells sand an exercise ball. I alternate upper body and lower body in between running days.

                I have a collection of free weights, a stability ball, and a BOSU.  All are great, but if I could keep only one piece of workout equipment, it would be my TRX suspension training system.  It's a great all over workout using only your body weight.  You can either attach it to your ceiling or put the strap over the top of a closed door.

                  +1 to this about the TRX suspenion training system. However, don't waste 200 bucks on it. I built my own for 30 bucks buying what I need from Wal-Mart. and you can find tons of exercises from YouTube.

                    I'll vouch for the IronStrength workout.  All you need is 1 set of dumbells to do the complete workout (I use 12# and it is plenty).  I would recommend working up to the 5-6 minutes of each "Superset".  Even if you don't do the workout as written, lots of good excercises and the video demonstrates good form for each.  I recommend "Mountain climbers"...really effective for hills.
