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 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.

In January set my target to lose 3 stone by the parade/Chelsea home game. 4 stone by Glastonbury.

Trying to stick with it to give me some focus and 3 stone off now.

Struggling with motivation to do excercise in lockdown, mainly walking and diet.

Yep stop boozing beginning of Jan, then slowly improved my diet and going for a decent walk 3-4 times a week listening to a few albums.

Had my first drinks last weekend and was shitfaced off 7 units.

That's pretty good fella. What weight were you to begin with?

I've been struggling to lose weight for a long time despite being pretty active and eating well. Then I started to look at alcohol and the calories I consume a week from drinking. Worked out it was probably 3500-5000. On top of that is the late night snacks which I wouldn't have without having a drink and realised over the weekend I'm probably consuming 6000 calories in addition to my meals. Talk about staring me in the face!

Completed a half marathon on the rower on Tuesday, in 1hr 46mins and another 20k over the week. I want to do a marathon within a week but have bad blisters on my hands which was the main thing that slowed me down.

Someone in the house bought me fingerless gym gloves on Amazon, but no one's admitted to it

Built up to 40 diamond followed by 40 reverse diamond push ups with a 2 minute break in between then 20 dive bombers every morning after my stretching and yoga. Then another set every other day in the afternoon with my lad.
Also been "doing" Joe Wicks with my wife every day oooh me glutes!
51 at the weekend and probably in better shape than at any time since I was 40. was 90kg at start of lockdown and 89.5kg this morning.

Im almost finished with Week 7 of Couch to 5k for like the 4th time

I am to finish this, then to get my 5k time under 30minutes. Then from there push it down as far as I can while aiming for a sub 25 minute time.

Weight isnt falling off me like I had hoped, but I feel a lot fitter than I was and its helping me sleep better.

I'm the opposite, no exercise at all, but dropped 1.5 stone in past 3 weeks (through dieting/starving) to get back to my old normal weight.

Did try to go for a run last week though and lasted about 10 mins.

Did it a few years ago with the family through the local council.
Really enjoyed it apart from the pain from achilles tendinitis
30 minutes was plenty fast enough for me.
I think it's a lot tougher to get motivated when you try it on your own through the app.Week 6 to week 7 is a big jump Keep at it and remember to warm up properly.

Did this last summer and am currently running about three times a week, ran my first 10 k. last August, but have completed 10 k. twice this spring, one 9 k. and one 12 k. May have overdone it a bit though there.

I followed the program to a T, but have not been worried about the times, sometimes it's ok to run slow. I noticed my weight starting to shift when I managed to run regularly 4-7 k's.

Love the program, don't cheat on it.

I finished week 7 of couch to 5k and am having this problem at the moment, how did you manage it the pain and keep going with the running? I've started having to back off a bit for fear of doing myself some serious damage

Are you stretching enough ER? Best way I found to stretch the back of your legs is to stand with your toes on a step and just lower your body so that your toes are still on the step but your heels are lower. Both legs together and stabilise yourself if you need to

Extra 5 minutes of achilles stretching before running (what Norbs says) and 2 ibuprofen.Grit teeth.
Freeze spray after warm down.

I thought I was but in reality probably not. I will do some extra stretches including the ones that you suggest

Thanks I might try the freeze spray, I'm not too keen on the painkiller idea to be honest the pain isn't terrible and as I say I don't want to do serious damage to them.

I never used to stretch but have started to sprain to easily. Before running you should do knee drives, try and get your knees up to your chest and thigh stretches, pulling or kicking your heels up to your bum. Should also do hip rotations, lifting your knee up to waist height and then rotating it forward

All easier said than done when you just want to have a run

The ibuprofen helps with the inflammation.
As Norbs says,stretch stretch stretch.
For the council 5k we did ten minutes of stretching before each session and i'd do 5 minutes extra achilles before leaving the house.
