    Gym closures due to Coronavirus- How are you dealing with it?

    Iím sure some if not most of you have been running into the issue of all the gyms closing in your area due to the Coronavirus pandemic and who knows how long this is going to last.

    It would take roughly 3-4 weeks before my muscles go from a hard and chiseled look to a more soft and stocky look.

    Whatís are some good alternative workouts that work for you guys and what are the best ways to prolong your muscular physique look from fading?

    I found a park 2 miles from the house that has some "body weight" equipment. Not great but better than nothing and I get some cardio walking there and back. Been using 5 gallon buckets and gas cans at home.

    I just ordered a rack and some bands to start. I have a feeling that my entire garage will be an underground gym before this is over.

    I finally cleaned out my garage and discovered the ancient city of Squat Rackia.

    Before the archaeological dig, I grabbed a couple of sand bags from a construction site at the end of the street. Put in a regular duffel bag or you can still get some sandbag bags on Amazon. You can clean, press, squat, shovel, row. Just about anything. I like hoisting it up over my shoulder and sprinting down the street and back. My neighbors probably think I'm nuts, but I'm not the fatass driving my golf cart around day drinking and blasting shitty country music.

    I also have a set of suspension straps. Not sure what's available online at this point.

    Look on craigslist for weights. I'm in a big city so there's a couple of places that sell used commercial gym equipment. They're still advertising. I may try to pick up a trap bar next week.

    Of course push ups, pull ups and dips at local schoolyard also there's a track there so been doing some sprints and jogging. Anyone that's done time in a joint without weights knows about water bags for tri extensions, curls, uprights and saws. A little harder for me to work out not at my usual gym but gotta maintain while on this lockdown.

    At 60 I decided to take break....I did not expect gyms to be closed this long....so this morning I dug up an Olympic bar from my garage...it is all Rusty and bent a bit....I did 50 consecutive shoulder presses, 50 curls and 50 french presses....I was breathing like a freight train ......

    Not gonna lie, i've just been smashing out high rep full body sessions till i cant move 4 times a week, major DOMs and seems to keep the rig in check.

    Even resorted to running and entering instagram competitions to get some more kit, think its a scam to be honest, entered loads and won nothing.

    I do workouts at home but ready to get back in the gym,mostly because our gym owner is still making us pay our monthly dues.

    I took time off to heal up some long term injuries. Just finally got back to it a few days ago. I'm deflated like a mofo, and my apnea has gotten much better because of it lol.

    I have some light weights only up to 25lbs, but I just found some 35 and 40lb DBs that I'm gonna go pickup tomorrow so that's cool. That's all I got though, along with some bands. I'm thinking about making some stuff like a bench and some type of row contraption out of leftover wood I have in the shop. Gotta get my width back! I feel like a shrimp because I'm back down to an XL shirt again lol
