    Alas, I only use it for belt squats. I have better options (and machines) for lunges, calf raises.

    Yep...everyone else under the sun is getting praised as a hero for working through this...but the USPS never gets mentioned, and it probably won’t until what you said becomes a reality. Then we’ll...

    I had. 110 pound “Challenger” set. Grey plates with grey and black bar and annoying collars you needed a special little wrench to tighten. Here’s a pic of the dumbbells that I found online.

    Despite the current situation...investing in a home gym was the BEST decision I ever made (related to working out). All you need is some kinda rack, bench, bars, and dumbbells to do everything you...
