    Can't do strength training without a gym.

    Or I'm just not creative enough so I'm open to suggestions, it seems a few of us are.

    My wifes step dad has some kit in his loft including a bar (although its bent AF, has no knurling, is half the thickness of a barbell and actually might not be intended for weights), two squat stands and a "all in one" home gym centre (fixed handle bench press not heavy enough, leg extension with no ROM, lat pulldown with no ROM, pec dec that takes all the strain away when you lockout). I'm grateful to him for letting me go up there but it's frustrating that I can't do it properly.

    I walked the bar out to squat it with 80kg and the floor slightly gave way beneath me.

    He has some adjustable dumbells but the clips were so loose I almost dropped a 5kg plate on my head, so I had to put all 4 clips on 1 dumbbell so I didn't die.

    I supersetted hammer curls, one arm shoulder press, behind head tricep extensions, 1 arm row and 1 arm bench with 15kg.

    How is everyones training holding up ?

    I could do with trimming some fat so I'm just gonna do some bodyweight stuff and some cycling while the roads are empty.
    Squat - 190kg

    Bench - 107.5kg

    Deadlift - 195kg

    I love working on the big 3, but I'm using this time to get back to my roots slightly and work some gymnastics exercises.
    I'm doing:

    Legs:
    Squat with my wife in my arms both of us wearing loaded backpacks. Did 220 for sets of 8 today. It's surprisingly tough considering I can back squat 295 for 8.
    Single leg Romanian deadlift with the weight I can scrounge. Same for Bulgarian split squats.
    Nordic curls.
    Pistol squats. Only did 8 per leg so I have some progression potential there.
    Sissy squats.

    Back:
    Basically bar work.
    Pull ups.
    Archer pull ups.
    Inverted rows.
    One arm inverted rows.
    Tuck front lever pull ups.
    Pull overs (over the bar).

    Chest:
    Pseudo planche decline push ups.
    One arm push ups.
    Dips (on the back of the park bleachers)

    Shoulders:
    Handstand push ups.
    Feet elevated pike push ups.
    Lateral raises (my wife has powerblock dumbbells that go up to 24 lbs).
    Bent over rear delt flies.
    Single arm presses, holding both powerblocks in one hand.

    Arms:
    Overhead tricep extensions with powerblocks.
    Curls with powerblocks.
    Bodyweight curls in inverted row position.
    Current.....................335 / 295 / 499............185 lbs
    July 1, 2019................9 week cut.................164 lbs
    Late April 2019.........285 / 275 / 440.............178 lbs
    Oct, 2018..............175x6 / 145x6 / 275x5......163 lbs
