    So my 24 hr fitness gym is opening up on Monday...Woohoo!

    Hold it...just a minute...what's this...masks required at all times??? How do you work out with a mask on? Cardio, Squats, etc, etc, I need to be able to breathe freely. It looks like they are resuming their monthly membership withdrawals out of your bank account whether you come in or not. So, you will now be forced to continue paying your membership fees whether you can tolerate a masked work out or not. Oh goodie...
    Because it comes from China...that's why. It's not racist at all. It comes from Chyna!

    Get a gaiter. Not perfect, but a lot better than a normal mask:

    The first time I worked out again I wore a disposable mask. Pretty horrible for things like squats, they don't actually restrict the breathing that much you have that hot/damp feeling around the mouth/nose as you exhale. Then it will as optional so I stopped using them on the gym.

    But working out is better than not working out. So "suck it up buttercup" .
    Sorry!
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    Ya know my buddy has a fishing scarf that actually has designed holes in it so you CAN breathe. I might have to look into something like that...

    when 24 hour chitness first reopened here it had 1 hour workout windows, but no mask in the gym rules

    now it's up to 90 min workouts but you have to wear a mask. I have mine over my mouth so I can breathe through my nose and just push it down over my chin when I do a set so I can actually breath. Its not great

    Yea, I'm hoping there is going to be some off the record allowed cheating here and there. I know if I had a mask over my mouth and nose while squatting I'm going to end up on the floor...

    I got hold of mine and told them until this asinine mask thing was done that I would not be entering the gym & to put my account on hold. The manager responded nicely and said they have paused my account until the middle of october but if I wanted to work out I could as they are not enforcing the mask thing, if someone is not wearing one they are just going to assume you have a valid reason.

    It's interesting that Cuomo is opening up your schools but won't open gyms. Our schools in WA State are not opening but gyms are now being opened. The randomness of these rules gets frustrating...

    My gym is requiring reservations which I just made one for opening day. I'm really surprised they are allowing 120 reservations at a time. It's a pretty big gym but still that's a lot more people than I thought they would allow. So far I am the only reservation at 5pm. I guess I get the whole gym to myself...

    So i go about 4 times a week and have run experiments to determine how to do things without the massive headaches afterwards.

    1. A big fat no on the n/kn95 masks, huge headaches and sweating profusely
    2. Mask around the neck, up when staff is nearby.....works well
    3. Cloth or fabric sports theme mask( go Giants!) works the best, but between squats you lower it to take deep breaths.
    4. Just be sure to spray down each piece of equipment before and after.... because the staff isn't that impressive at cleaning.

    enjoy

    the 24 hour here was requiring appointments here to before they closed back up..

    I'm fortunate because I have had access to a semi public weight room since all this started so I haven't had to deal with all the headaches...

    2 24 hours have closed it's door permanently that are within 20 miles of me so far...

    I might be wrong but I think some of their closures might have been unrelated to the Cova...

    Sure felt good to get back in the gym after 5 months. Wore a neck gaiter mask for the check in and pretty much did my whole workout with it down around my neck. It was warm in there and I was breathing hard and drinking a lot so no point in even having the mask up. I'd say about 50 people in there total out of 130 possible reservations. It was like a sunday morning which was nice. Squats, Deads, and 30 minutes on the stairmaster. Ufta...

    Excellent. Yeah, that first day not knowing how to act or if people are looking, but it's all good. Just workout.

    Glad the gaiter is working.

    It's funny, I've told 1/2 dozen people that my basement gym is open the 23 hours I'm not using it, not one person has taken me up on the offer. It's a basement gym, might be be some rust and dust here and there but you got 500lbs of weights, 2 bars and squat stands.

    I'll tell ya something that was very glaring to me. The people in the gym...at least the ones anxious as I was to come back first day, are a totally different class of people. Nobody gave 2 chits if someone wasn't wearing their mask in the official position or if they didn't have one at all (there was a couple) not even the staff gave a chit and nobody walking around like they were on some sort of a power trip. I had a great time in there and I'm hoping it motivates me for a couple months. I'm officially in boot camp until my fall fishing/camping begin. I'm not in the kind of conditioning on any level I need to be. Too heavy, not strong enough, not enough endurance, tight as a drum, painful joints...I'm a mess. Thanks Cova!

    You've offered that to 1/2 a dozen people and every one of them is scared of going into your basement... Now is that something to do with them, or something about you?

    Some gyms are smart enough to understand not to enforce a person performing strenuous exercise to block air.

    Good on your gym for not being Nazis.

    Some people can train hard wearing a mask, but it could be dangerous for some, that needs to be respected.

    Also 15-20 rep squats are a different animal than 10reps, breathing matters!

    That was my protocol before Cova so nothing new there. I never get the flu shot and can't remember the last time I got the flu...

    I kinda like the reservation idea, but my schedule is pretty flexible.

    As for cardio whilst wearing a mask, I can't imagine breathing through any type of sweat soaked face covering and getting a good workout. Cardio is misearble enough without a mask.
