    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.

    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.

    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 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)."

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :ballin:

    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

    lunges

    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)
