Awesome dusty :xx:

I’m running 5 to 7 km’s. Pretty dead after 6 but I do recover very quickly after I finish. Maybe I need a steadier pace.

I don't know. It varies as I run with my dog, I just got a fitbit charge 3 so I'll be able to measure that.
I start off easy and slowly work up to a higher pace but try to stay around 130 to 140 bpm heart rate-wise.

Hey Skinner,

You like nogi a little more than gi, right?

I also love nogi. Are you planning on checking out a 10th planet gym some time?

Yeah I dig nogi. My professor is actually going for his black belt in 10th planet. He's known Eddie for quite a while.

I think I'll stay away from 10th planet for now because Eddie will literally spend 40 minutes talking about how the earth is flat during class on the regular. Also everyone there treats every roll like it's a tournament, and I don't need to get injured just to satisfy some dude's gym ego.

:hard-on bearer:

No idea how the 10p place is here in Amsterdam. Would like to jusr visit for a day.

Still very happy with my school though, not too big and great friendly people who want to learn and grow instead of only destroy you.

For those who work at home, at least try this.
Every hour do one set of:
- 15 pushups
- 15 squ.ats
- 30 second plank

At the end of your day you have done 120 pushups, 120 sq.uats and a 4 minute plank.
Beats doing nothing.

How? are there gyms open or do you have access to some weights? Good to see you getting back into it :santa:

I have a few bits (bands, limited weights, kettlebells, pull up bar), been trying to keep on top of things, work on some issues I've had with my shoulder again etc.

I've had my bands for about a decade, finally getting significant use out of them! I purchased from Iron Woody but like everywhere with sports equipment I am not sure what supply times are like. EliteFTS are another brand I know that is US based but I'm sure Amazon has cheaper alternatives.

I purchased some some "mini" bands from Amazon which are branded Gritin and while I bought these for rehab they are great for training biceps and shoulders because they're easy to double up and increase the resistance slightly. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gritin-Resista ... B07L9WLKZQ

You can get kits from Amazon which I've seen suggested by a bunch of instagram accounts, they allow the bands to be hooked under or around door frames but I haven't ordered as I've got enough kit to keep me going - they come under many different brand names and are probably all from the same Chinese factory but here is an example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06W5RPRTF/ ... _lig_dp_it

Amazing! you can get so much done with that, good luck with it.

I sold my squarsh rack, bar and most of my plates last year for PEANUTS. I've been told that weights are going for £4/kg now, normally it's £1/kg. A fellating lover of mine basically sold his gym just to cash in.

When I get my own place I'll start accumulating a few more bits and pieces with any future LOCK-DOWN in mind but I miss the gym and it being separate to the rest of my life.

Gonna order some running shoes so I can start doing that again. I haven't ran in almost 4 years, but the monotony of inactivity is really starting to get to me.
