    I hate running so the bike is a great way to get cardio in. There no denying it’s helped in my lifting too.

    Although the two are very dissimilar, having an echo bike in my garage has made me very disinterested in owning any kind of stationary bike.

    Juggernaut made a free limited Training guide. I added it to the library. Again if yous want to get your nerd on just ask and I'll add you. I have all of Juggernauts and Renaissance stuff thanks to some posters. And I literal shitton of other stuff.

    Also added a whole lot of Mountain Dog stuff. Check that folder out.

    I wonder if there's some sort of black market opening up for people renting out their home gyms. I'd pay $15/hr

    If the garage I’m using becomes unavailable I’m going to be willing to give someone $100/month to let me use their garage

    Ordered a rogue Jammer bar. Still not here

    Figured out I could make my own using the drop down attic and a curl bar.

    I built a garage gym for the sole purpose of avoiding the absolute chode army at my old one. No way I'm inviting randos to airbnb my gym even without Corona virus

    0% I would ever do it either. I don’t trust people around my shit. Not even that they would steal, but more that they wouldn’t respect the equipment.

    I have to check my wife occasionally for various violations, I can't imagine how mad I'd get if some jerkoff who paid $10 was disrespecting my equipment like it was a goddamn planet fitness

    Nothing chaps my ass like people saying “Kroc rows today. 3x8”. Like walking up saying “blasted my legs today. Hit leg press for 8 sets of 1”. Fuck you

    I so wish my gym did this. Asked the manager about throwing some extra cash their way for a few sets of dumbbells or bars and a couple of bands but no go.

    I'm wondering if they change their tune if (when) this quarantine extends beyond the initial 2 weeks and they start hemorrhaging customers as the monthly payments come due.

    Have zero room for a rack so made 2 3 in 1 plyo boxes into a makeshift 1. Just have to squat starting on bottom and bench is super weird and a bit dangerous but making it work. Need some bumper plates but they seem to be in nearly as much demand as toilet paper.

    hensleya or anyone else no where I can get power blocks or a good set of adjustable dumbbells? I’m good buying new and paying a little extra. Facebook and Craigslist doesn’t have anything good that isn’t price gouged like crazy.

    DL Platform arrived. $200 free shipping. Weighed over 100#. FedEx guy might die or get incredible gains delivering gym equipment during this shit.

    My friends neighbors, who never speak to him ever, asked about my squat rack. Hes like "oh it's not mine i don't know if you can use it"

    Fuck outta here

    I kinda figured getting power blocks was out. Can’t even find other dumbbell sets online, but i don’t really know where to look.

    Have to wait a month. Or grab a curl bar, bands, or a Mutt Bar. The mutt bar covers a lot of bases for me. Just got my rogue bands too so I'm beyond set.

    Have a lot of Titan shit, good company iyam

    Did some 315# zercher squats today which weren't hard besides the pain on my forearms/biceps. Ruining it by eating/drinking like a fool, goal for end of quarantine is at least a 405 zercher squat.

    Doubt you'll thank me if you start doing them.

    Also been doing BB hack squats this week and haven't done them in a long time so form sucks and keep slamming my hamstrings.

    watching a youtube of eddie hall teaching strongman technique on some lifts. he is so into the details of each event and how to shave time off the event. his personality makes it easy to overlook how smart he is.

    Yea I'm kind of over resistance bands and was checking shit out since we'll prob be doing this awhile and no one has fucking anything. I guess I'm thinking about this way too late in the game.
