    Just imagine her in a pair of flats to improve her balance. She's got Dad's genes alright. Great depth for that much weight for her. Great coaching ID...
    Because it comes from China...that's why. It's not racist at all. It comes from Chyna!

    That was wonderful, ID! That proud dad status is well earned! I wish that was 100 times more common as it is.

    Before the plague and when my gym was open, I was getting up at 3AM to go workout. Now, it is 5:30. If I were to guess, the three bodyparts that will suffer the most is legs, back and chest, in that order, simply because of lack of challenging weight.

    This morning's workout:

    Pushups

    Pullups

    DB Curls

    Dips

    Bentover DB Rows

    DB Shoulder Press

    Side Laterals

    Front Raises

    Anterior Raises

    Hammer Curls

    30 minute brisk walking in the neighborhood at approximately 4.1MPH.

    Notes: The psychological effect is strong. But, I think I can still maintain somewhat of an athletic build until we overcome this. But, for now, the virus is exponentially growing. Went to the grocery store this morning and I lived. Small achievement.
    Helping one person may not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.

    ID, thanks, yes, that's how much squats are a necessity for me. Not really optimal in my basement anymore, and never thought I would have to do them in this fashion! I had gotten rid of my rack 2 years ago. (was going to move this summer anyway and build a nice gym).

    Cool vid. of Steinborn squat.

    I think i will visit the GF at her apartment and do the stairs.
    The building has 14 floors and they closed the gym with the Matrix machines, so keeping fit with flights of stairs may just be the deal.
    Speed climbing really has a way of testing your fitness and cardiovascular system.
    sums it up a thread will start off promising and then turn into name calling..
    The easiest way to tell when an argument has no merit is when the protagonist mixes in some personal insults.

    I have yet to hit a real session in the garage gym. Planned to tonight but it’s cold and 8m exhausted from another day of covid madness. Maybe I’ll go out after dinner.

    It is wonderful and reassuring to see today’s youth legitimately excited about training like this!

    This is slowly becoming popular in youth of all ages, and when I first started, well, you just didn’t see this kinda thing. I remember my grandmother in state of concern when she found out her granddaughter lifted weights for soccer.

    Keep at it!

    This morning's workout:

    Pushups

    Pullups

    DB Curls

    Dips

    Bentover DB Rows

    DB Shoulder Press

    Side Laterals

    Front Raises

    Anterior Raises

    Hammer Curls

    30 minute brisk walking in the neighborhood at approximately 4.1MPH.

    Notes: The psychological effect is strong. But, I think I can still maintain somewhat of an athletic build until we overcome this. But, for now, the virus is exponentially growing. Went to the grocery store this morning and I lived. Small achievement.
    Do you typically hit your full upper body like that all on the same day? I'm afraid to ask how many sets...

    I'm probably wrong but I swear a 25 lb dumbbell feels heavier at home than at the gym. I think my gym is pinching the weights to make people feel better about themselves... Also, my God cardio sucks at home. I literally feel like a hamster on his wheel in the little cage. I'm chalking this whole thing off to a long over due de-load or I'm going to get depressed. I haven't taken off more than 1 week per year in the last 8 years and typically don't de-load much either. My elbow joints remind me quite regularly!
    Because it comes from China...that's why. It's not racist at all. It comes from Chyna!

    Fishy, all of those exercises are done, one after the other with no rest until after the last exercise, I rest about 2 to 3 minutes. That is one Giant Set. I do all those exercises for 3 Giant Sets, Monday Wednesday and Friday. After those workout, I walk briskly for 30 minutes including Sunday, so I workout 3X per week and walk 4X per week.

    Weights do feel different. One reason for me is that I am not splitting. Example: At the gym, I will use anywhere from 25lb to 30lb DBs for Side Laterals. At home, because I have already done pushups and dips without resting, 15lb DBs feel about right. With that in mind, I concentrate on form and the muscle group I am at least trying to hit with each exercise.

    The reason I only do 3 Giant Sets is because I am doing it all 3X per week and any more than that I feel would be over-doing it. But, as I mentioned in an earlier post, to progress, since I don't have higher weights, I can increase the reps per set by 1, 2, 3, etc..

    I hope that makes sense.

    Half of my workouts tend to be at home already so now it's just all of them for the time being. I primarily use a weighted rucksack, kettlebells, bodyweight, and a pull up bar.

    Today's workout was 30 minutes of stairs wearing the backpack, then I hit circuit training for about 30 minutes: weighted pull ups, hand release push ups, kettlebell swings, brickyard man makers (clean-squat-press-overhead lunge with both legs) using the backpack, and six different abdominal exercises.

    Garage gym should be mostly set back up by the weekend. We took it down so we could get 2 cars in for the winter. I went to the Y as an alternative, I played hockey up until a couple of weeks ago. I took a break from lifting in the end of January because the hockey and lifting were catching up to me...and I still continue to have nagging issues with my lower back.

    Anyway I have been doing this every third day

    Spin Bike warm up 10-15 minutes...or until I feel sweaty.

    Dynamic stretches.

    EMOM for 10 minutes 3 sandbag power cleans (with a Rogue 200lb size sand bag filled to capacity with rubber mulch...making it 60lbs approx). (Easy)

    Triset: Floor Press with dumbbells, 25lbs...20 reps or so....band rows...band pull parts

    SS: Hammer curls, Triceps extensions...lots of reps low weight.

    C2 Rower: Pyramid: 100m, 200m, 300m, 400m, 500m, 400m, 300m, 200m, 100m....rest 45 seconds between the intervals...hold about a 2:18 split.

    Light stuff to get going again.
    Strength + Cardio + Proprioception = dominance
