    You directed this question at someone clearly more fit than me, but I am a huge fan of Rogue equipment. They usually have a Black Friday deal where shipping is $5. I mean, a forklift had to move the pallet. Rack, bar, an optimistic amount of plates, etc etc. Five smackers, that's it!

    I love my home gym. Even before the pandemic. And especially during it: I would have had a COVID-40 if not for being able to work out at home.

      Yes! Those set ups are amazing. Love the idea. Maybe Black Friday is just the inspiration I’ll need.

        A temperature controlled garage? How could you not!! Losing 20lbs in 6 months is pretty insane, especially since I imagine you weren't trying? My spouse is at his lowest adult weight, due mostly because he's working up to a half marathon. I guess he's lost about 10lbs. I'll start complaining when his size 30 pants start bunching at the waist.

        I do not own my own rig. My neighborhood CrossFit lent out equipment during the Stay at Home orders. I really lucked out. Before the pandemic I quit CrossFit and worked out a deal with the owner in which he writes me a lifting program and I get into the gym during off-class hours. So once the gym reopened it wasn't terribly opportunistic to ask if we could resume that setup. I prefer going to a neutral space to exercise and now that I'm pushing weight on bench it's nice to mask up and get a spot.

        fatlittlepig I probably should have sent a PM to you and the others I've gotten to know but it seemed a little "extra." plus I kind of enjoyed the pile-on in my last thread. lol

          I am down about 10 pounds. Cooking more, walking more, doing housework between patients instead of surfing the internet. Hoping to keep it off.

            We have this setup in our garage plus barbell/plates/adjustable dumbbells, incline bench, sissy squat, etc. My husband loves it. I don’t love weightlifting but am liking it more now that it’s right at home.

                About the same 20 lbs overweight that I have been for the past ~5 years (since my first sympathetic pregnancy). I eat normal. Then I eat sugar. Weighing doesn't help. Getting back into regular biking, that has always brought my weight down in the past.

                  I think the Rich >> Fat thing is true... I think that a lot my former self-control was being a penny pincher. Now. No excuse to not have dessert or the sweet cocktail. Trying to reverse with pandemic Peloton. I like that thing and I can burn 1000 calories in 45 minutes with it.

                    When I bike for fun(and commute) I bike fasted(dry). Nothing orally since dinner the night before. Every unit of energy and molecule of water/CO2 exhalation is coming straight from fat.

                      I've lost 8 lbs and I am not totally sure why. I do think I'm walking and biking more but my exercise is the same. I think there has been some stress. At first I was kinda happy because I finally got back to pre pregnancy weight ( kid is almost 4!) But I'm at my lowest personal weight ever and if I lose much more I'm in trouble. So I don't know. Hopefully I'll level out with pumpkin spice everything all the holiday baking.

                        that sounds like a slight exaggeration (1000 cal in 45 minutes)

                          Sustained at 15mph for a 300lb person should do it. Otherwise Peloton is lying to ya.

                            i never understood biking as a means of exercise since its the most efficient form of transportation (assault bike not included, that things death)

                              You’re all such a bunch of overachievers.
                              I put on about 5 pounds. I blame it on Telehealth. You don’t have to move much doing that.

                                possibly. Is intense though. Requires very high resistance and you have to be in the top 2% of participants.
