  • When I used to do a bit of climbing I followed this:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/bodyweightfitne­ss/wiki/kb/recommended_routine

    Would be ideal during lockdown (with the exception of pull-ups etc.)

  • tldr

    Does it include burpies? All you need is burpies. #covidfit

  • 60 burpees down 40 to go.

  • Mon/Wed/Fri:-

    • 3 x 5k runs a week (daily outdoor exercise - no chance for cycling) now aim to end it by meeting up with wife/daughter out on their walk - will try and build one run up to 10km
    • 100 pushup programme - https://hundredpushups.com/index.html

    Tue/Thu/SatOrSun:-

    Regular meals, proper portion control and less snacking and the weight is slowly sliding off.

    Cycling and swimming fitness will go to pot, but not worried about that. I'll happily take being 15kg lighter and running/weight fit and needing to rebuild cycling/swimming from scratch.

  • 50 burpees down, never getting up.

  • I have a pull up bar for my door frame, it's good. Powerbar 2.

  • I use to do yoga every morning, then when we moved to shared accommodation I didn't have any where to do it before work, but since we've been locked up I've resumed it, after 2 days I'm feeling particularly sore.

  • Cant wait to run again on Sunday if I don’t develop symptoms, need the zen time and to get out and about.

  • Would like to add my mental health tracks my physical health closely so not being able to run has been difficult.

  • Hip flexor injury prevents more than couch to 5k style splits three times a week. There’s some weights physio attached to that two or three times a week.

    Might throw a numerical challenge like burpees or press ups into the mix...

  • is that apple or potato?

  • I used to have a cheapo equivalent.

    I should mention that a friend of mine broke his knee after his pullup bar detached itself from the door frame! If anyone gets into pull-ups please make sure the bar is very secure, especially in the current circumstances

  • 30-60 mins of yoga everyday (once a week attending a 90 min online class)

    60-90 mins TrainerRoad every other day

    Log spitting and stacking

    Gardening

    Walking dogs

  • I think it’s important to stress that you should only do pull-ups with strict form and very slowly to minimise the risk of falling and also the risk of shoulder injury, particularly if you are new to pull ups. Kipping and cross fit style pull-ups can indeed make a door frame pull up bar move around. Strict slow pull ups should be fine. I got my bar from Aldi last week and it’s been great so far (they even deliver). I am 85kg and do about 60 a day in sets of 10-15, hope to get that up to a 100 soon. Pulling is important for shoulder health. Would also recommend face pulls with a resistance band for external rotation.

  • I can't do any chinups or kettlebells at the moment, because all the handwashing and alcohol gel have wrecked my hands.
    But can attest that the Powerbar2 is excellent. You might need the XL version if you have accesibility width doorframes.

  • Are you washing your hands with bleach?

  • The blisters on your hands are going to get swole.

  • Kipping and cross fit style pull-ups can indeed make a door frame pull up bar move around.

    I assumed people would not be so stupid. But then again the Darwin awards needs more candidates.

  • Only doing Zwift and not really for long enough. Weight steadily going up as side-effect of dangerous fridge proximity. Currently 83kg

  • It does look good although the cheapo one i have has grip bars for neutral grip which is easier on the shoulder for people with rotator cuff issues

    Edit: it’s out of stock now

  • I have a 1 month old baby, so an extra 15-20 handwashes a day.
    My delicate piano hands can't cope.
