    My condolences on losing your gym(s) again and I'm glad you have the space to make your own.

    Ont. has the 2nd highest rates in the country and Alb. the 3rd, and now my city has surpassed the former hotspot of Calgary. They're talking another shut down but not walkin' it yet.
    My job is safe but I need my iron therapy to stay outta jail or the nut house.

    Stay safe out there brother and sister.

    Looking good. I'll probably never join a gym again anyway. Too time consuming with kids/business ect..

    I've got 2 olympic complete sets, one outdoors nice and rusty and one indoors with a rack/moveable bench. I'd love to add more dumbbells but they are scarce. People asking over double what they cost new.

    I enjoy being inventive with my workouts as well. I found a set of rings and have a swingset I made for the kids so just take down 1 swing and attach those. Another thing I figured out was doing alternating leg step ups on my porch stairs. Awsome burn at the end of a leg workout.

    Been looking at the ads online and it's comical and sad at the same time. People are selling absolute garbage for top dollar.

    I'm looking to get another pair of 25 lb plates. Dude had a pair online for $65 and I was about to jump on it then noticed that was EACH. $130 for a pair of used 25s; nothing fancy just plain old cast iron. I sent him a mess age "$75 for the pair and I'll pick them up tomorrow". No reply. So I guess they are actually getting that kind of money.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    The prices I’ve been seeing make me want to sell some equipment. I have too much and I don’t think my gym will be closing (I hope not anyway).

    Get a rain check and ask for notification when they're in. CT is good for that, especially if they know you. Just don't try to use their money. They won't take it while Covid is around.

    Saw in another thread you were looking for a camber bar for OHP. These aren't currently in stock but might be a good solution to avoid buying another bar:

    Haven't used them myself, but I'd go this route if you already have a bar you like.

    I sold a bunch of plates I wasn't using for a little under $1/lb, thought that was fair, girl drove from another state to get them the night I listed them. Sold her four 35's that I had never used in the 5 years I owned them.

    Lol she probably had them on Craigslist the next day for $2lb

    Prices are insane and people are paying it. I bought my kids a Nintendo switch for Xmass for awhile they were selling for double used

    I sold my pop-up camper for $1,000 more than I tried listing for last year. Sold in two days. Liberating those Trump bucks.
    People are selling used 3rd Gen Toyota Tacoma’s to Carvana for thousands more than they paid new due to lack of supply.

    Yep. I see ads online for brand new equipment still in the original box for 2x retail.

    I mean, I like money as much as the next guy but I'm not going to go buy **** just to list online at inflated prices to make a few bucks. People are crazy. And ****ty.

    Nice set up!

    My wifes gym closed up so I picked up a nice Lifestyle elliptical for my gym. Its basically all she used there anyway.

    I've been waiting for Rogue to restock the matador attachment so I can do dips but its low on things they're making right now. I think we are weeks away from being shutdown again too. Herc had someone test positive last week and it feels like the walls are closing in on us here.

    It was like that around here with a lot of stuff. I bought a 19ft. CC boat for $3800 in February and could have gotten $6K for it in June if I'd wanted. I'd be out on it now catching some proteins if it wasn't so windy. 5 to 8ft. waves on a 19ft. boat = death wish.

    I gave some crossfit girl a new olympic bar for free since I had 3 of them. Just seen one on Marketplace for over $100. Sheesh.

    That's been coming for months dude, it means they're closing the non super sports to force people with grand fathered deals to re-sign up for $80 a month "super" sport gyms. Their new super sports are absolutely trash too, very small and minimal useful equipment

    Man up and get some gymnastic rings for your squat rack. Ring dips are hard AF. I sold my pull-up dip station pre-Covid but have a dip apparatus that attaches to my rack. It’s a PIA though to put on and take off. I don’t lift in the garage gym anyway lol. Hope yours doesn’t close. We’ve been having a lot of positive cases at work lately. We were doing good for awhile.

    I do ring dips at Herc but want the attachment for weighted dips at home. Ring dips are much easier now that Im sitting at about 204

    We were doing OK until recently. About an hour ago I received an email saying the kids will be remote all week this week due to a bus driver testing + and others having to quarantine. I'd imagine this is how life will be for a while.

    I swapped out the light fixture in the ceiling today from a 1 bulb unit to a 2 bulb unit and put in some bright bulbs (20W LED, which are 150W equivalent). It was kinda dark down there with the black floor and one measly bulb.

    Nice and bright now.

    Lighter than me right now lol. I’m about 215 but dieting. Finally making pain free progress again. I’m not going to get super lean again since that made me feel like chit. Ring dips are hard. I was doing 8-10 rep sets of weighted dips with a 45lb plate but could only do about 5 ring dips. Probably some skill involved that I never mastered as far as balance.

    My kids school is going well. A guy on the school board is the head of pathology at Loyola. We have weekly saliva testing, daily health screenings. No false positives so far, but I believe they had a few positives.

    LED shop lights and good big mirrors are worth it. It made a huge difference in my garage gym. I have the lights angled a bit away from the gym area so it’s like indirec5 lighting but very bright and invigorating.

    I had one of those 3-panel LED shop lights in my garage. Made a big difference.

    But the basement has a finished ceiling with a proper light fixture. Just happened to have a larger 2 bulb one kicking around and I swapped it out and thanks to Amazon I got the mega bright 20W LED bulbs too.

    Huge difference.

    So far no mirrors. Maybe after we fix the drywall and pain the room I will.

    Nope, I became friends with her on FB and she posted squat videos the next day with my plates. Had some rig with cement buckets and 2x4's as a squat rack. Brought a Manly tear tear to my eye TBH.

    Nice set-up. Like the creativity on the Back exercises.

    I have a landmine attachment on the rack too so I can do various rows. I prefer Meadows Rows.

    Will post a vid later this week.

    Landmine one of the best weight-lifting inventions. So versatile, too.

    I just had a great gym session. Amazing how fast lifts move back up. I couldn’t squat for a few months due a back injury from deadlifting (happened in a warm up set ). I started squatting again 10 days ago, gassing out on 225 sets. 3x5 @315 today and they felt stupid light. I was wearing running shoes because I only planned 275. Bench, Rows and OHP all moving quickly in the right direction now that shoulders are feeling healthy. You’ll be glad you have your stuff n the basement. I have a feeling it’s gonna be an early winter and I’m practically on the equator compared to you .

    I'll sort out the swinging situation. Just spent enough time on it today and was done.

    I didn't train for 4 months due to my foot issue but I am squatting and deadlifting 400+ again. Feels good. Bench is in the toilet though.

    415 lb squat yesterday no belt and sleeves only:
