If bench press is sex with a 9/10, push ups are jerking off with no lube to a memory of a drunken one night stand with a fat girl from 5 years ago.

In the UK, we are more or less on lock down. So, I've been trying to do some home workouts that I found on YouTube. And it's no where near as enjoyable as gym. I looked forward to going to the gym. I have to force myself to do these home workouts and even afterwards it feels very disappointing and I'm glad it's over.

Has anyone been working out at home? And what is your experience like?

This is temporary. Treat this as a maintenance exercise. You aren't going to get stronger or more fit by working out at home. All we can do is mitigate our losses. This is the perfect opportunity to transition into a natural cut. Take some time off from the weights and take up outdoor activities such as running, hiking, or bike riding. Do some outdoor manual labor if you can.

Yeah I do it. I used to do them at home when I was younger too, but it’d be one set to absolute failure, once a day, everyday (later on twice a day) and I actually made progress like that for a long while (~2 years). I’m not doing my current workouts like that bc they’re different (like instead of regular pushups, I do one-arm pushups; instead of bodyweight squats, I do weighted pistols w/ weight vest or 2; I also do decline pushups with the 2 weight vests that I have).

They suck. But it is what it is.

Well, I ONLY workout at home 2019-2020. I start with jump rope (to music) getting sweaty, then shadowbox with intervals of plank-pushups on a bosu ball, walking on hands with feet on the bosu ball, back raises, crunches off my back followed by getting up and falling down on purpose 10x, then burpees. After all that back to jump rope about 15 minutes, then to a squat workout (don't need weights), jumping jacks, pushups with balancing opposite arm/leg in between, knee raises while in pushup position. It lasts about 45 minutes. Today I could've done two back-to-back because I had a lot of energy, but ah just said fvck it and didn't go the extra mile. Would probably have lost 3 more lbs had I done another 45-minuter. The most painful part of the workout is walking on hands in a 180 back n' forth 16 times, your legs wobble, your arms, sweating profusely by less-than-midway through the workout.

Get gymnast rings. You can do so much with rings. The level of complexity is absurd. There's no end. Furthermore, calisthenics muscle is far denser then the flub you see guys in the gym packing.

Gymnastics ring pull up's, chin up's, push up's, archers, dips, etc more complicated movements like muscle up's, levers, and others is solid. On rings you can dip and rotate from pronation to supination. It's superb for shoulder mobility and ROM.

The ***** is leg day. Find 40 or 30kg dumbbells. Unilateral lunges and the heaviest dumbbell you can. Do Germany volume training. 50kg goblet squats 10x 10. I run.

Back is tricky to get in the workout with calisthenics but you can do it. Lots of pull up's, chin up's, and rings are ideal. It's just about getting creative.

5kg dumbbells for deltoids. Handstand pushups are money. Assist with a wall or a tree. Just be creative. Mix it up. Try new things.

Use a weighted backpack. Doesn't have to be weights; can just use heavy objects around the house. Mine usually adds 25+ pounds

More I do calisthenics the more I think weights are overrated. I'm getting ripped and my diet is not on point either

There is nothing you do at the fym that you can't do at home, invest in a pair of dumbells and a bench.

I invested a bunch of money in a home gym last year, before all this Corona sh!t was happening, and I personally like it. One of the best investments I ever made, honestly. You lose the social aspect of going to the gym, but now I can workout whenever I want, and I have ZERO excuses now.

I manage to cut the losses by buying a pull up bar and some dumbbells when I smelt this sh1t in late february if it wasnt for that I would have lost plenty of muscles.

The only good thing is that streets are empty at night and jogging in the city is more pleasable than in the forest to me.
