Home workouts

Recommended Posts

Havent been on here for a while but i remember there was a good few who trained regular so i thought id ask what they were doing at home to stay fit and keep themselves sane.

Ive been running most mornings and lifting in the afternoon.

Doing circuits kinda tabata/crossfit style,olympic lifts with some high intensity cardio too keep my heart rate cranked.Not really looking to have any goals just keep my fitness,strength and gains.

What you guys up too?

Good question.

 

I've actually been on a health kick for the past 2 months, trying to lose weight and generally getting myself fitter and stronger again after leting myself go.

 

Been running as much as I can, but eased off it lately as I believe I have shin splints after upping the distance to 8km. Probably going out for a run today though as they are feeling a bit better.

 

Bought my lad a weight bench for christmas so we have been doing that but he only has 50kg of weights. Picking up my 140kg olympic bar set later that I have in storage so we can start a dead lifting routing. Might also purchase a power rack if I can find space for it.

 

On top of tha though, I downloaded the Peleton app yesterday. They are doing a 90 day trial because of covid-19. Its usually about £40 a month. Theres a massive amount of workouts on there, including live sessions....and all the instructors are hot which is a bonus. Mix of male and female instructors so something for everyone 😂

 

i'm going to start doing a selection of courses, 2-3 per day, from cardio to core and even yoga

Normal weights/callisthenics/chins etc. for me, and dusted off the mountain bike at the weekend.

 

I bought some squat stands before the madness started, so I’m back on those bastards as well!

Still recovering from a bad chest infection so still feeling a bit weak.
Going to ease into some fitness in a couple of days.
Going to start with some TABATA
circuits.
20 seconds exercise/10 seconds rest.
Then...
Ivy strip and deadwood some of the big oaks at ours.

Thats a good start @trigger_andy, and once you've built up a little bit of core strength, something like this would be a good stop gap for you before moving onto free weights perhaps.

 

 

I think it's terrific!, I can just imagine all those mincers on the rig every morning...

You imagine that thought every morning?  I bet you're keeping yourself busy whilst imagining it too.

Good grief, where did you find this? I was not expecting an English accent at all. 

 

Actually, he reminds me of Bebop off of the Ninja Turtles. Yeh....
