    Lots of different threads with people discussing getting through quarantine while still maintaining workout routine and eating healthy. Figured could consolidate like some of the other threads popping up.

    I’ve just purchased 50# dumbbell, 60# kettlebell and a plyometric box to try and get some workouts in that aren’t all running and body weight.

    what’s everyone else doing?

    I've had a home setup for years as I hate the hassle of actually going to the gym and I'm not concerned with putting on mass.

    Currently rolling with adjustable dumbbells that go up to ~77 pounds, an adjustable bench, pull up bar, few bands, and a yoga mat

    Limited to a pull up bar and 15 lb dumbbells so running, pushups, pullups, bodysquats. Using the weights with squats and super setting the tougher bodyweight exercises with whatever I can do with the dumbbells :/

    Buying a C1 rower and bikeerg is better than peleton but that's just me, also don't have the monthly fee. Have both, they kick your ass.

    those provide a great workout, yes, but it’s hard to beat the interactiveness and variability of the peloton

    Burpees, lots of them, if you don't want to run. I swam a lot because I get tendinitis in my foot if I run too much (which is still fine now) and they just closed the aquatic center I use yesterday. Just bought an exercise bike, but hell I really hope I can get back to swimming soon.

    Have a decent amount of home equipment: bench, dumbells, kettles, bands, heavy bag, jump rope, foam rollers. Going to go on a “CV cut” and do some real high intensity 35-45 sessions. Will mix in 1 day of yoga. Will intermittent fast too. Hope to drop 10lbs.

    will jump right back on my bulk and heavy lifting when this is over

    Today I bought an adjustable kettle bell and resistance bands up to 200 lbs. Going to turn my 10x10 patio into a "home gym."

    Pre-quarantine I would practice yoga almost every day, studio class 3-4x/week, the rest would be a 20-30 minute home practice. My studio and 2 of my favorite teachers are all doing donation-based classed via Zoom (badass app), have done that a few times, so think I can maintain that.

    I generally eat healthy, but my biggest worry is booze. Always going to be easy to excuse a few drinks with nothing to do tomorrow.

    Don Saladino (trainer for Ryan Reynolds, Sebastian Stan, etc) has been going all out on instagram with body weight and minimal equipment program guidance. He just published a free 4 week bodyweight program last night. I have a few pairs of dumbbells but I also have some tendinitis in my elbow so I’m going to try the bodyweight program for a little while.
