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

Third time this week I went to the gym, and a squat rack was available this time!  Did squats and the press.  Came home and did medicine ball drill for driver too.

33degF outside, wind was light, not snowing, slush/snow/ice mostly clear from the roadway shoulders, so I got outside for a lunchtime walk.

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.

    • I did tell him to f*** off and worry about his own ball he just talked more shit after...Short of having fist fight with an old man that's about all I could do.  And yes I have called rules violations on folks before, but generally try to help fellow competitors as much as possible during competition. I've been playing in these money tournaments for about 3 years now and it has 120+members and I have never played in a foursome during a tournament where someone was blatantly pulling this.  I assumed there was some rule against it since I haven't had someone try that before. I asked the question and you guys answered, and I honestly didn't thank my manhood or ability to " handle it as a human" would come into question. I think the topic is now over, and ask that you please close the thread unless you folks aren't done attacking me yet.  
    • This reminds me of the episode on Bewitched where Darrin and his boss Larry take a prospective client golfing. The client is addressing his ball and Darrin asks if he inhales or exhales on his backswing and it totally messes the guy up to where he cannot function anymore. Hoses his game.
    • Good grief, man.  Toughen up a bit.  Like @iacas, @David in FL, and others have already indicated: tell the guy to shut up or get over it.  Why is it only in golf do people seem to be so weak-minded?
    • Thanks for posting. I can edit the title for you with the name of the cart if you would like. It would make it easier for folks to find. Also, more picks would be a nice addition.
    • No. Seriously, Matt. Tell the guy to shut his trap or suck it up and/or laugh off his attempts. Jeezus. If it’s this easy to throw you off I almost can’t blame him at all. Handle it. One way or another. If you couldn’t handle it as a human I doubt you could handle telling him he broke a rule if that was the case.
