Apparently a friend (in Denver) of mine got COVID from her pilates student, when she was taking a class from another instructor (she's also an instructor). She's mostly recovered besides some lasting fatigue, but had peak symptoms back in November.

I like my workouts at home a lot!!

Pilates is all breathing in through the nose and out through the mouth, so Yeah I can see that. Forceful exhales from someone sick could be a real issue.

For states that track the data gyms haven’t really been on the radar screen In terms of transmission - but you can get it anywhere.

I’ve been going to gym 5 days a week since they opened back here in May. Have to wear masks when inside and it sucks

but we even had a coach get it (from her kids) and she taught a few classes before she knew and there were no transmissions

Cracking a door seems to work wonders and having high ceilings IMO.

I agree with all of this. But

Exactly, this is why I"m going nowhere.

You do Elite fitness. So you are Elite and not mortal.

Exactly. You can at least imagine that the people who are going to the gym and trying to be healthy, in general, are taking the right precautions...your co-workers on the other hand...?

(At least mine, I've seen the way they leave microwave and don't wash their hands.) :sick:

BACK TO THE GYM. Yesterday...was tough. We did deficit deadlifts, which weren't bad, but I don't think I went as heavy as I could (the weight situation during the fitness class gets a little dire and there was a lot of bartering going on). I hit 147lb. Not crazy good, but the deficit did add. Conditioning was... a little rough. 6min on/AMRAP with two minutes rest of each group: 10cal row + 8 box jump, 10cal bike + heavy sled push, or 10 walking dumbbell lunges + 2 running laps. Thank god that was only one each thing. Finisher was side-walk with bands. It was much more difficult after everything else.

Also...I still have my 2021 goal of getting a pull-up/chin-up. I just bought one of those doorway setups to at least attempt a couple times during the day/make me try more than at the gym. We'll see what happens.

Last Thursday was Day 1 of the 57 Hard program for me. After doing most of the Day 6 tasks so far, I can say that it is hard, but not impossible. Continuing will be the harder part for sure.

I assume you meant the 75 Hard?

Tbh, I would attempt it, but the cold showers + 2 workouts a day is what would make it a no-go. I can barely do my hour of exercise a day, and I need sleep, so that's healthier for me. I wish you the best!

Yes. I used to be able to edit a post. :( There are no cold showers in the boot camp. Doing two workouts a day is not a valid excuse. Everyone is busy. Thousands of people have done this program.

They won't let you edit as Unintended. If you were still Audi, though...hahahahaha.

I thought cold showers were like a 'part' of the 75 hard? Or am I remembering an older version of it (5 minute shower). As for being busy...I enjoy having some downtime between work and trying to keep my apartment livable and not buying takeout all the time (meal prepping surprisingly takes a lot of time...), so I'd rather have my hour of super focused fitness class than force myself to wake up an hour earlier, when my sleep schedule is already shot, to do another morning workout outside.

I might be able to do something like the hard for like 5 or 6 weeks, but I know I'd get super burnt out after that.

There are cold showers in the next phase after the 75 hard bootcamp.

Anyone here watch Jujimufu on youtube/instagram? Posted a video over the weekend that he and Tom are no longer working together. Details of the civil suit showed up online shortly thereafter. Looks like Tom (who always struck me as a bit of a psycho) was stealing from their business(es) to pay off his taxes and fund a massive gambling addiction, in addition to a number of violent outbursts at gym owners, air bnb stays, etc. Makes me wonder if he will attempt to go out on his own again, or bring in someone new to handle the scheduling/appearances/collaborations and video editing.

Update from last week: My 75% bench press is now bar + 40lbs = 73lbs. I remember when I started and I could do the bar + 5lbs and almost died.

It's almost like this exercise thing works. I'm aiming for a consistent 100lb bench for 2021, if possible. Not a crazy weight, but reasonable for me.
