    I wish I could, unfortunately there's nowhere I could build a home gym in my 1BR condo

    My doors aren't even the right width to put up one of those cheesy pull-up bars.

    My gym has staff cleaning all day, non-stop, but I'll probably be taking a break. My storage unit facility is less than a mile from my home, and my power racks and weights are there until my metal garage is finished being built. Heading there today or tomorrow to assemble the rack. I'll just walk there, lifts some weights, and walk back. Gotta make due.

    I've been training with a barbell 3-5x/week without interruption for the past year plus, so deciding not to go to the gym was rough for me. But I'll get over it. For the next couple weeks I'll use my parents' basement where they have a set of dumbbells, a recumbent bike, and a pull-up bar. They have been wintering out of town. In a few weeks they'll be back, and at that point I will switch to yoga/bodyweight movements at home and running outside.

    I'd rather lose some of my gainz than feel like I contributed to millions of people needlessly dying.

I've been going 5-6 a week and playing hockey for the better part of a decade. it's just my time ya know? I agree that one needs to think of others during this time ... it's just hard for me. I miss that outlet.

    I think I'm going to work on stretching and flexibility because those have never been my strong suit since I stopped playing college level hockey.

What are you all seeing? I love going to the gym but do worry with the advice on social distancing and it is a place that is easy for germs.
    I last went on Friday but will probably hold off for a bit. I’ve run outside the past two days and have a pull up bar that I’ve used. I’ve been in a great gym rhythm lately so that’s frustrating but I’m trying to lose fat so running will be good.

    It can live on surfaces for up to 3 days, air born for several hours.

Once the summer hits and I am outside exercising more, it isn't as much of an issue. Winter though. Brutal.
    I haven’t been keeping up with the thread over the past few months much but would point out that you started at 189lbs in Oct ‘18 so to be at 170, or even up to 175-180 is still an improvement. Your original goal was 175. If it was just a week of eating and drinking my guess is you will have a lot of extra water weight so even if you weigh 180 it’s more like 175 in reality after a few days of eating well and drinking a lot of water it should come right back to that.

    If it’s a long game you can afford occasional cheat meals each week and still make good progress without feeling overwhelmed by your diet. Just get back on the horse.

    Forgive me if I am overstepping my bounds, but you're the threadfather here and did ask in the first post that it be a place to hold each other accountable, so I mean it in the most collaborative, non-judgey way possible when I say:

    It's March, bro. It seems like you like riding your bike and such, and in the Canadian winter this ain't happening, but maybe you just have to join a gym and force yourself to go there every day. It'll suck but just go through the motions the way you do with all your other daily inconveniences, such as brushing your teeth commuting to work, and the results will come. Your relationship with food also seems kinda rocky, and in the end this game is more about diet than exercise unfortunately, but I'm not going to pretend like I have an easy solution for that one.
