At a box...I'm horrible at working out at home.  Been going since 2007.  My wife and son are good about working out at home.  They have all the Beachbody vids...p90x, Body Beast, insanity...

At the gym I push harder with other people in the class, at home, not so much.

I'm the same. Been doing CF for six months and it has changed my workout routine for good. I am in the best shape of my life at 39. Feels good. 

Today was Partner AMRAP 18 minutes

18 Wall Balls

18 Kb Swings

18 Box Jumps 

18 Burpees

Got through 5 Rounds and 48 Reps

A few people puked today in the heat with this one.

For time:

10 rounds of "Cindy" ( 5 pull ups, 10 pushups, 15 air squats) 

50 calorie row

30 power cleans

Took me 20:54...I was dying.  Great workout.

Gym where I do my weights workout is now closed until 3/29 as a precaution due to COVID-19. 

Looks like calisthenic workouts for me for the next couple is weeks.

Confession:  I didn't go to the gym when they briefly reopened in California.  I actually don't have an issue working out in a mask -- I had briefly considered a cloth mouth covering pre-Covid because I think how my face probably looks while benching or squatting looks bad (mouth open, sometimes spittle).  

I did, however, order some adjustable hand weights from WalMart and I have been using them 2-3 times a week.  They have locks and 4x 2.5 lb plates and 4x 7.5 lb weights, so getting them to 20 lbs each is fine -- about where I am on hammer curls and dumbbell press.  I'd probably be trying 22.5 weights for these if I were at a fully equipped gym.  I can also easily reduce them down to 15 lbs for flys and tricep raises, although the 17.5 pound configuration is a little awkward (since it's unbalanced). 

I delayed getting my home gym setup for years, now regretting it.  Still have my $20/month LA Fitness membership (on delay while they're closed in California).

When the pandemic hit, I bought a push lawn mower (self propelled).   It gives me the opportunity to get in some walking.  

This is an excellent post. We do not realize that we are training our body all of the time, one way or the other. I always laugh when I see people at the Y looking for that parking spot closest to the entrance and then a half an hour later they emerge wearing jogging pants. One of the things I tell my students is when you walk up stairs grab the railing and just put the ball mount of the foot on the stairs and let the rest hang off. As the heel drops you get  a stretch in the calf muscles. You have to go up the stairs anyway, make it to your benefit !

Back before COVID-19 I would always take the stairs up to my office which is on the 7th floor and which I would walk up and down multiple times sometimes going to different places.

Also try and get at least 6k steps in but don't really prioritize it but do go for hour walks or so when I can and am motivated.

Started p90x again yesterday and I’m sore today.  It’s been a few years since I went thru p90.....I’ve been working out consistently but mostly just weights. Did the chest and back and then plyo today.  Been sticking with superspeed 3x per week.  Trying to eat right now too.

    • Day 164 (22 May 22) - worked on getting weight on lead foot - used the reverse stork drill and 3w.  Key was to stay as balanced as possible, did okay.  Followed with some lefty swings with the Dunlop lefty 7i, focused on the pressure of my weight on my lead “right” foot.  Then turned it back around and completed the drill session with full swings with my SLDR 7i and the hard foam balls. 
    • Correct. The R10 is much closer to the Mevo, not the Mevo+. Yeah. 😄
    • At $300 and requiring only 3’ for a radar unit, I don’t think it’s going to be very accurate. So no, it’s not going be dominating the Mevo market anytime soon. There are those of us who didn’t get the Garmin R10 at a fraction of the price of a Mevo+ (and Pro package) because of questionable accuracy. Hell, the gifs on their site show people “playing” the simulator without even hitting a ball. It’s basically a video game at that point.
    • Yet another question about the technology for filming a swing. I read Erik's updated "Filming your Swing" blog post as part of researching my next phone purchase. My current phone, which is on its last legs, was able to record video up to 1080p at up to 120 fps (Pixel 3XL).  However, that camera isn't great at the moment (various reasons unrelated to its specifications) and I'm going to get a new device soon, too.  Its likely successor for me is only able to do 30fps at 1080p, so that won't work for filming a golf swing.  It can do 720p @ 480 fps though (device I'm likely to get is a Galaxy A42).  Will that work for this?  I realize the post says "at least 720p video," but I don't know if I should shoot for better than that (such as if it is expected to be outdated soon).  It also seems odd to me that a camera could do only 30fps at 1080p but 480 fps at 720p, but I know almost nothing about these things. I am also debating getting a separate camera for golf swings if this won't work;  my prior separate-camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110.  I believe it tops out at 720p / 30 fps;  if there's a reasonably priced camera that works for my golf swing filming, I'd be happy to get that and not sweat the camera on the phone. Other than filming my golf swing, my phone is pretty much a communication device and podcast player, so I'm not going higher end except if doing so is the most effective way to get a good camera for my golf swing. (Apologies if this should have been a separate thread, but I figured it was on-topic here and I didn't think there was another forum than Member Swings where this would be an appropriate top-level post)
    • Day 127: Played 18 this morning. Tried to simplify the mechanics of my priority piece (which is two things) into a feel but didn’t work great, so just settled on on of them after a few holes. Played okay except for a dumb triple bogey on #12.
