    Back in the day, when faced with the same situation, I found that using a deck of cards could really help out.

    Take a deck of cards, draw one, and do that amount in push ups. Face cards being, 10 reps, and aces, 15 reps. Continue through the deck as many times as you can, with little rest.This will burn after awhile...

    That's a cool technique to always keep you guessing.. might be good to have a set amount of rest in between each set.

    You can do many variations of pushups and also squat jumps, pull ups, bodyweight rows

    Haha... Well, if you consider being a Jarhead trapped aboard a navy ship for months prison...then yeah!

    Besides, how did you attain that information?
