    One Year, 3 Months, 20 Days. Where now?

    As the title suggests, I have not missed a single day doing a lite workout, and I now need more. I don't have much equipment, so I'm kinda stuck with myself and a bar that I can "jerry rig" up to 140lb. That and all the gyms in my area are corona'd and shut. PS. No outdoor cardio due to living in a frozen wasteland.

    Current Plan:

    100lb Weighted Squats X 20
    100lb Bicep Curls X 15
    5 Min Wall Sit
    100 JJ, 250 High Knees
    10 Burpees
    100 Left and Right Lateral Leg Raises
    500 Bicycle Crunches
    150 Sit Ups
    3 Min Plank
    50 Regular Push ups

    Once a day, no breaks, no rest periods, no supplements, no proper diet besides watching what I eat.

    Some ideas for you:

    https://www.strongerbyscience.com/no-gym/

    I recommend focusing on the amount of exertion you put into each set. For example, if you stop a set when you could have done 10 more reps, you weren't finished.

    It sounds like you are just trying to get through a set amount of workload just to tick a box. But the point of resistance training is to challenge yourself to do a little more than last time. If you can't increase the weight because of equipment limitations, then all you can do is do more reps in a single set.

    If your rep count when doing any given exercise is much above 20-30, you need to find ways to add resistance or make it harder

    And you should rest between sets - at least 1-2 mins. Remember you are trying to challenge your muscles locally - not tax your CV system (that is a different goal)
