meditation is dope
What I’ll be doing later, will share in case others want to participate
Had a protein shake for breakfast #gainz
My gym closed Monday. They are doing 45 minute classes on Facebook live. Wish I had a peloton right now because I will probably get bored of the cardio workouts with no equipment in a couple weeks. So far though I’ve been getting a good sweat in.
I have a pullup bar that I'll use with resistance bands to hit some high reps. TRX bands as well. Bought a couple kettlebells as well. Long walks with the dog, maybe a jog a couple times a week. Gf is a yoga instructor so that as well.
It's cutting time boys
i would like to start doing yoga but have no idea where to start. plz help
Yoga with Adriene on YouTube.
Yoga thread loves her, I love her, you'll love her.
youtube yoga with adriene, she has like a 30 day intro challenge
yoga is dope too. start slow and progress slow. i got really into it last year and progressed way too fast and ended up tearing my rotator cuff. don’t do that plz
i'm just gonna keep going to my gym until they close. nobody is really there so i have the place to myself.
Running daily, push ups, crunches etc is all I've been doing so far. Need to get a more organized regimen and add some HIIT. Temptation to drink every night is strong for sure.
where are the planks? i don’t see planks
I posted this somewhere else (I think the remote work from home thread). Orange Theory is posting their workouts on Youtube to help those who normally attend their studio workouts to keep up with the workouts.
The wife and I did yesterday and todays workout this morning and it was a couple good ones.
We just cast it to our TV screen from the Youtube app.
Since I'm taking a break from running to get my patellar tendinitis to go away and I no longer have access to an elliptical or lap pool, I've biked 15 miles yesterday and today. I forgot how fun it can be while still being challenging.
Gonna start incorporating TRX and DDP yoga in to my home workouts tomorrow.
I started doing it every night before I go to bed back in December to help with stress and anxiety. It’s been awesome. Huge fan.
I may be a dickhead for doing this but I am still playing tennis. Just walking on court, staying 6 ft apart
Other than that,
1) buying a rower for my kid whose rowing team workouts are cancelled
2) buying weight bench and a few dumbbells to do a little strength training
3) masturbation (vigorous)
runners can look in to more trails too. still a lot of impact so may not be for everyone but a little better than pounding the pavement everyday probably. and works your muscles differently obv ...
Yoga is hell on the shoulders, especially if done incorrectly. 95% of the US population fucks up the traditional Chaturanga Dandasana flow (going from standing to the floor to up-dog), and it causes significant shoulder pain. Keep your elbows close against your ribcage, and try not to let your shoulders come lower than your elbows. I did it incorrectly for years and my right rotator cuff was in bad shape, finally starting to get back to normal.
I'm almost done with my 200 hour teacher training, but the last 2 weekends are going to have to be online. Was supposed to teach my first yoga class at a brewery on April 5, but that's been postponed indefinitely.
I've always thought of yoga itself as "active meditation," even before I took a deep dive. Then began studying the Yoga Sutras -- one of the first written accounts of yoga, from around 400 CE -- which defines yoga as "the absence of movement (vrtti) in the mental field (the citta)."
Ordered a bike rack so we can go biking more places
Ordered some discs, we came across a disc golf place on a walk recently, just more things to do outside, away from people
i felt mine pop flipping the dog, which i had no business even attempting at the time. i had only been doing yoga 3-4 times a week for like a month
Anything with your chest towards the ceiling and hands on the floor is going to cause major stress on the shoulder. I don't do that or side plank anymore.
Quarantine day 4 update
I just bought a treadmill
I've found side plank on the forearm/elbow to be a lot easier on the shoulders(typically true of plank in general).
That works, or just having your lower leg on the ground in a supported plank.
i do a few normal side planks, and then if my shoulders are worn out i find it easier if i set my knee down on the floor. it still activates the core you want to work, but relieves the stress on my shoulder.
Reminds me of my favorite way to do push ups where I just lay flat and put my palms on the ground
Just bought a set of power block dumbbells and a bench to compliment my peloton. Doing a daily push-up and pull-up challenge with my two brothers.
about to try bodyweight workout #1
all I have is a blue rogue band
Just ordered some resistance bands, push up bars, and new running shoes. There is a park near me with a number of parallel bars for bodyweight exercises.
Might use this time as an excuse to finally look into yoga.
For those of you interested:
still one of my favorite thread titles
I did workout a at the park yesterday and it fucked me up
Just got these, few more bands and same price.
They are not $28.88
Ordered a yoga mat so I can get busy with Adriene.
Ran 4 miles this morning before the rain. Feels good
I workout from home all the time so that’s not my issue. I just have to eat better. Got in a great eating routine around September to November but then had health issues that killed my running. Just went to crap eating again. Need to get back to that.
Had this thing for awhile and it gives me a great workout.
Also doubles as a sex swing
35 min back and bicep session
5 minutes per exercise, AMRAP, light weights
10 minutes of jump rope and heavy bag as finisher
now time to throw in a dip and play 2k for a few hours
run with some kettlebell stuff.
hardest part is no booze
Thinking about trying to tie my dick in a knot tomorrow, will let y’all know how it goes.
I got a pull up bar thing but it doesn’t fit on my doors. Tired these ground ones a guy a YouTube was doing but they didn’t work for shit.
Too much snacking today.
now that I'm recovered from an achilles deal I'm able to run again which is huge. I've grown much fonder of distance running over the past few years and probably prefer that to sprints now, even on a nice soft track or field. But both are great
pushups. I like doing random sets of 20-30 throughout the day, mixing up the hand positioning between narrow and wide. Also really like doing something where you do one pushup and then you stand up and raise your hands together up over your head once and then do two pushups and pop up and raise your arms up together twice and so forth until you've done ten of each. Can be pretty grueling to start out but if you can start doing that a couple times each day you'll be
planks. Only way I really mix these up is to do some where you bring your knees up to the elbow on the other side of your body. Some good YouTube videos showing this
Russian twists. Would like a medicine ball for this
leg lifts. These are maybe the most difficult thing for me to push through. So many different ways you can make these more challenging too
I pretty much do the same HS football offseason conditioning and stretching routine I've been doing since like 2001 minus the weights and with more distance running than sprints these days (when healthy)
Because of all you fine gents working hard during the quarantine, I made it out today for a nice run. Felt good to get back outside.
