    I don't do direct arm work other than a couple sets of curls after pull day, and my arms got too big for my t shirts. In a good way. Also arms are still what everyone comments on. I did this...

    I guess we're all different, I'm 35 and have no issues with one arm push ups. Been doing them since the gym closed, in addition to pseudo planche pushups, handstand push ups, feet elevated pike push...

    Rings would be freaking awesome and my ceiling is like 11 feet high but it's plaster so stud finders don't work and finding joists is a royal PITA. Maybe I'll check out that elevated one. Or perhaps...

    I had this problem for a long time - I think from so many years of cycling I was just trained to push my legs forward and not use my hips in the push. I feel weaker pushing straight up with my hips....

    Nice, I didn't even think of working rear delts in that direction with weights. It's the same shoulder motion as a manna.

    Bump.
    TL;DR just looking for a doorway pull up bar that won't damage my apartments fancy trim. Not too pricey cuz I'd probably sell it when gyms open again.

    Bike up a 10 minute hill as fast as you can, rest 5-10 minutes, repeat 3x. Basically long enough that you don't just get super winded first but hard enough that your working muscular endurance. 20-30...

    Fairly certain he isn't judging by his posts. Also IIRC he can't do a muscle up.

    I agree gymnasts tend to be able to do pistol squats first time trying. Guess it's all those portapit frog jumps...

    Recommend doorway pull up bar?

    I typically don't venture into this section, since I'm not usually interested in equipment and don't have a home gym, but I guess it's probably getting more popular now.

    I'm doing calisthenics now...

    Legs are skimped on a bit.

    For hamstrings I've been doing high rep SLRDL (hold the heaviest thing you have access to) and assisted Nordic curls.

    Split squats and sissy squats also good options...

    These are brutal, but do require a good bit of weight. At the gym I typically do about 2/3 of my back squat with these for similar reps.

    However, with the lack of gym I found that trying high rep...

    Been almost a week since the gym closed.
