The Joe Wicks workout on youtube is brutal.

And it's for kids.

I have worked on some muscles I've not looked at in a few years.

6.2km on the treadmill, using iFit for the first time. Until my account is activated I can only do the run of the day. Today was a lakeside run in Scotland. iFit displays still shots from Google maps on the display so you get to track your run. Managed a 5min stint on the rower too. Little bit more Cosmic and I'm done for the day

Not sure if this will work...

https://connect.garmin.com/modern/ac...e_unique_id=4m

201 heart rate is insane, I don't think I've gone higher than 175 before. This was a reading on a garmin watch, might have to see what a chest strap reads because at 51 I shouldn't go that high

You shouldn't really be going over 170 mate.
Rule of thumb is 220 minus your age.
I'm 50 with a resting heartbeat of 61 and don't go over 155.

Mental isn't it.

A mate and me are challenging each other and it was at my limit. It had returned sub-65 within 10 mins and back to mid 650s in 20mins. My heart rests at 50 and overnight went as low as 42. I'm not that fit!

I have a neighbour who used to be a personal trainer and he reckons those numbers are a guide but if you're posting higher then it doesn't mean anything. I think I'll try and keep below 170 now though, just to be safe!

Think training is going to keep me sane. My gym is supplying us daily body weight, kettlebell, dumbbell and skipping etc workouts. Absolutely knackered after today. It's probable I will lose some muscle mass without lifting substantial weights, but if I'm disciplined I could probably end this lockdown (3 weeks from today here) in better shape than I entered it, considering I can prepare meals at home with no time constraints/temptation/reason for eating shit takeaway foods.

This will probably be the opposite of what actually occurs but reason for optimism so far.

I'm 42 and aim for between 140 and 160 when I'm doing cardio, but really don't want to spend much time over 160, it screws me up. Once I hit that zone I find my endurance is shot.

My resting is about 45.

I'm definitely going to lose some muscle mass without access to heavy weights so I'm going to work on flexibility.Largest kettle bell I have is 12kg
Can't believe what a good workout I can get doing diamond/reverse diamond decline push ups with a push up bar though!
Currently 90 kg and 6'1" - don't want to drop much.

Do you find push-upbars worthwhile? I've never thought much of them, maybe I should relook it. I used to do hundreds of pushups with ease when I was younger from my boxing background. Now I struggle to do more than 30 consecutively, it's actually embarrassing how much I've declined.

I picked up 16 and 18kg kettle bells from the gym (it's a small private gym so they were happy to lend us equipment, unfortunately there wasn't an extensive range to choose from as others got in before me). Also got 12.5kg and 15kg dumbbells. Would have ideally had something a little bit heavier but it's still challenging enough for me.

After cardio stuff, the KB workout consisted of 10 rnds (5/side):
  • 12 Suitcase deadlifts
  • 9 Hang power cleans
  • 6 Shoulder to overheads

I'm only 5'8 and around 76kg, could probably drop 1 or 2kg without losing 'size', not too perturbed about it anyway, not that I carry much additional weight on me, but wouldn't be sad if I sacrificed a bit of both muscle and fat. A couple of weeks doing front/back squats, deadlifts, clean and jerks, snatch etc on the bar will do the trick.

Hardly drunk the last month or so. I'm wondering if I'll see any return on that in the longer term. Actually, reduced this a lot the last few months where I consistently used to have 1-3 minimum with benders inbetween. Got a good stash of whisky and beer for the testing times ahead, but I rarely drink alone and don't intend to do too much of it now. I have zero expectations but it would be interesting to see if there is any noticeable upside.

I've added "dive bomber" press ups with the bars and some "attempts" at planching.
Old school convict conditioning lol.

So you can see where you are against the 2016 figures.

I thought I was doing well then until I saw the filter was women aged 50-59

I'm well below the 42min average for heavyweight men in my age category. Some freak did it in 35mins

Done a lot of cycling last two weeks after a winter of Racketball.

Doing an hour odd loop from my house , 18mph average not too shabby for 49.

Target is to get back to 20 which i could do couple of years back.

I haven't done any reps and sets type exercise, instead I've done loads of gardening and doing general stuff with the renovation.

Still drinking and eating like it's my birthday but feeling fitter.

Been training consistently with KB, DB, skipping and body weight workouts supplied by the gym. Stepped on a scale yesterday and I'm down the better part of 3kg. Not sure if it's partially muscle loss, but most of it is definitely 'bad weight'. Not an expert, but figure my diet is grossly different at home and I drink considerably less. I estimate I've had about 8 beers and a double of whiskey over the last fortnight. Wonder if this will be sustainable when normality eventually returns.
