That really is amazing! Ive been Doing a circuit for the last 2 days, trying to improve on my amount of laps each time, I did 10 yesterday, the track is about a mile long each time around, I did 11 today, and i dont have any weights, so i was lifting a bottle of water, I want some exercises that i can do at home, when im not busy, and feel like a work out for some exercise, have any ideas?

I assume you are getting ready for basic training. Push-up, sit-ups, eight count body builders, running, and climbing will get you ready for that misery.
If you can get your hands on a set of dumb-bells that is all you really need to get in decent shape. You can use them to curl, various presses, squats, calf raises, lunges, etc...
Perhaps you have a family member who has some weights they are not using. I don't think I know anyone who does not have some kind of exercise equipment collecting dust.
Maybe use one of the laps to run and push your bike. You'd be suprised how easy that throws you into the anaerobic domain.
