Any gym rats on here?

Back in the day, although just getting out of bed & walking around now is classes as weight training for me ๐Ÿ˜‚

ย 

Ive been meaning to start again, I got my weights out from under the bed a while back, dusted then of & left them in the open so I would start, then about 4 weeks later I was tripping over them so in the end put them awayย ๐Ÿ˜

ย 

The thing with any training is you have to have the right motivation & mental determination to want to do it.

I used to train heavily, weights & different dry land drills to get ready for the snow seasons I did & before going overseas skiing in the summer.

After giving it all away the training went by the wayside unfortunately.

A bit - but I more so with a resistance band. I do it to get me an edge in tennis.

Those are great as you get constant tension like using cables.I use to play tennis too.

I have probably added 20 km per hour to my serve, though most of that is due to improving my technique. Ie getting a proper power loop or deep drop instead of bringing the racquet straight back.ย  You don't really need a court to practice. It can even be an advantage as you are not distracted by the result of whether the ball is going in or not - you just focus on the mechanics. It's been a good little lockdown exercise.ย

Yeh i get into it a fair bit, gone from bodybuilding style work outs, to now more power lifting/ strength training.

ย 

Its been hard lately ,ย  but i made a set of dumbells with steel pipe, buckets and some quick dry cement, which has helped me continue moving and not losing too much mass.ย 

ย 

I started training in 2011 at a mere 57kg, i now hover between 89-95 kg depending on my diet.ย

Used to do weight training until all the gyms were closed, so my daily quarantineย workout is sit-downs for 1 rep x 12 hours and lie-downs for 1 rep x 12 hours

Not anymore but my daughters do. Boot camp ran continued and the gyms are now back open. I also set up our garage with punch bags, weights, powerbands and giant truck tyres etc for my girls. Ive been amazed how much use its been getting, literally 1 toย 2hrs of full on pounding everyday they are not at boot camp.
