  • Any other UKers struggling with lockdown?

    Gyms have been shut here in the UK since 4th Jan (almost 2 weeks).

    During the first lockdown I was OK. I was determined not to lose what I'd worked hard to gain and got creative, doing pull ups,...

    Lol, you read my mind. Not only do I park far away from anyone else, but I look for the "bonus" spaces too. On an end, where you can only be dinged from one side, or preferably a spot that's super...

    Would like to start a cut, but gyms have closed again so my goals are kind of on hold. I spent most of 2020 at maintenance.

    I think my goal at the moment is to muster the motivation to continue...

    I'm not advanced, but I do pull-ups every back workout. Most people I see do lat pulldowns, but I feel they're inferior to a pullup. Don't know how people can do them as a warm up though, I find them...

    I remember before the Internet, when I'd have to buy a copy of Flex to find out who won.

    Always assumed it was genetic, same with hair loss. My wife started getting grey hairs in her 30's and she doesn't lift (fortunately she dyes it). I'm 40 and barely have a grey hair on my head.

    Close to zero grams of fat will make you ill. Fat is required for hormone production, if nothing else. Having a very low fat diet can lead to you feeling lousy, ED and other things.

    Depends whether you want it to be lean weight, or just general weight (muscle, fat, and water).

    If you want lean weight then going from 170 to 200 could literally take years, especially as you've...

    I think your abs look more defined in the most recent photo, although it could be the way you're flexing them.

    Sometimes I think increases in size can be difficult to gauge in a photo too, due to...

    Same here mate, I'm gutted. My strength had just come back from after the last lockdown (which we've not even been out of for a month yet).

    I've been on 3,000 - 3,500 calories a day, hoping to hit...

    Hello chap. In tier 3 here too. Worried that today we're going to move into tier 4, and that's at least another month of workouts out the window.

    Lol join the club. I'm not sure if it's due to age (I'm 40). But I like to tell myself the muscle is slowly being added all over, hence some measurements don't appear to change in places.

    Lie on the bench, and push the dumbbells up and down, away from your chest.

    If the bench can adjust to an incline, that will work the upper chest more.

    If you find the dumbbells are too light,...

    I'm inclined to think that the bulk of your gains come in the first couple of years. After that, progress slows down. With that in mind, if you'd never trained legs, I would guess you could have them...

    As illpinoise said above, don't sell yourself short, your photos almost look like two different people! You've gained quite a bit of weight, without a significant amount of fat.
