I've been struggling to keep active too. I've been working from home since March 16th. Haven't been to the gym in over 3 weeks now and I've been struggling to exercise at home, other than doing 60 - 100 pushups a day. As weather gets a little warmer I'm going to force myself to go running, which I hate lol. Prior to everything shutting down, I was playing men's league hockey 1-2 times a week and then hitting the elliptical at the gym 1-2 times per week, after lifting.

So far my weight has been consistent while on self quarantine. I haven't been eating as much and have been good about keeping alcohol intake minimal.
my chicago gym has a few people instagramming, but the hot filipina instructors from my stair climber class there are a lot more fun to watch. anyone one did a 1000 sit up challenge and did them in 45 minutes. srsly f that. i know my tailbone skin is gnawed up by 100 and getting there ain't a fun time, i can't imagine banging out 1000.

Yesterday was a 40 minute ride on the trainner, 100 push up and a 2.25 mile run in the early afternoon.
Run got shortened up because I was cold.

Woke up and got in 4 miles this morning. Feeling good right now. Lifting tonight before dinner.
I need to keep the momentum up. I also need to really watch my diet. That is phase 2.

I’m jelly of you guys with home gyms. I just did ~20 sets of lunges with a 35 lb dumbbell outside. Probably the best workout I’ve had since the gyms closed

Have any of you seen what workout equipment is selling for on Offerup and CL lately? Bowflex adjustable dumbbells that adjust from 5lbs-52.5lbs going for $700 and up. Saw a guy today selling a barbell with 2-35lbs plates for like $300. Average cost of plates in the past were like .75-$1.00 per lb used. Now I dont see anything under $2 per lb, lol. All my buddies want to come work out in my basement, not happening.

Started Shieko again and I'm gonna actually follow the split correctly and not overtrain this time. Might as well come out of this bullshit stronger then I've ever been.

Been consistent since the gym has been closed

Back, arms, legs today, bench, triceps etc earlier this week, been walking over a mile every day.

Down 15 lbs, not by choice...
But it's fine as I probably don't need to be 230lbs

:rofl:

Sup. Did my first at home workout. Swept out my garage and luckily neighbors car wasn’t in there so I had some room. Hung some gymnastics rings off the rafters and did my thing.

I haven’t done anything and I’ve gained your 15lbs, I think I’m alike 240ish right now, I actually think I might do a transformation deal either starting next week or the Monday after it’s just hard for me to want to workout without actual weight to lift

Really starting to debate if I should order a small power rack. I’ve got space in my garage, I have one of the two spots in my shared garage. My half is about 1.75 cats wide.

Starting to be unsure gyms will even open in the next 2-3 months. Even then it’s probably going to be a limited number of people or have to reserve a time to get in there.

shipping on anything fitness related I’ve see is a min of 14-21 days out.

I was able to get a Hulkfit rack for $499 from Amazon right at the start of the stay home order. I think they have gone up in price, if they are even available. Now everything is super expensive and takes weeks to ship. I’ve been spending about $1.65-$1.75/ lb for plates on offer up. I lucked up on some bowflex 5-52 lb adjustables for $500. I don’t think I’m going back to the gym now. I have too much invested at home and there is no risk of getting sick.

I have been consistent for the past few weeks getting into my basement to use equipment. I attribute my inconsistency to not having a plan and almost having too many options. It was almost like paralysis trying to decide what to do the day of, I made the adjustment and am keeping things simple. I also have been walking and biking most days, these are not musts in terms of which one I do, but more of what I’m feeling. In addition to doing all of that I make it a point to hop in the sauna right after my workouts and do 40-50 minutes in there. I have been feeling great.

Good to see you guys still getting after it.
