    Government doing what they do best, use the media to cause a crisis and then swoop in with a solution. These people are fucking up people’s business, peoples jobs, causing hysteria all over something equitable to the Flu. I hope people start comin to their senses and turn off the damn news.

  3. Yeah,
    I'm facing total ba bankruptcy for all I've worked for the past 7 years in my company.

    Is what it is,
    I have food in the table and my family is okay.
    THAT is what's Important.

    Good to hear you're still hitting the gym

    Stay swole brother, need to hit that 315 bench.

    I'm assuming work is crazy right now... accidents etc like wild.

    Sorry to hear about the finances. Due to oil and gas crash here I went that way last year.

    Yeah the gym is open for now but the push to close all non essentials is coming. Trying buy all I need to continue lifting at home if I can get it and have the cash.

    We have been scaled back on medicals with flu like symptoms, and let the paramedics handle them, unless they are unstable and cant wait for paramedics, this has slowed us down on some of the medical calls, still dealing with fires and MVIs which if we all got sick doing medicals we wouldnt be able to do.

    Keeping first responders on the road is of utmost importance in times like these

    Week 4 Sheiko
    Bench
    135x5
    185x2x4
    205x5x3

    SSB squats
    135x5
    225x5
    245x4
    265x3
    285x4x2

    Dumbell flat press
    50x8
    60x8
    70x8
    80x7

    Thinking this will be last workout at the gym as it will more than likely be closed. The firehall gym is closed as well. Trying to get equipment is tough. The lower end stuff is gone, no 45lb plates, no 25lb plates, no 7 foot oly bars only womens bars available. So can get higher end stuff and spend an extra 800 to a grand more amd still no bar to lift it. One store expecting more oly bars tomorrow or Wednesday but things may be shutdown by then or they will sell out before Incan get down there to buy(2hrs south).

    I have two 45's and twelve 35's. Took what I could get at a reasonable price for now. I do my deficit deadlifts with 35's anyway, so if I get 45's later the 35's won't just be wasted. Have you checked Facebook swap and craigslist?

    So gave up for now, was pissing me off too much to keep looking. The one store here that had all but a bar can go fuck themselves. Marked most of the stuff up on the quote some by over 100 dollar mark up to their online price, when I called him on it he said well with whats going om we havent had time to change the site, in other words we marked it up due to situation. So when i do set up my gym he wont be where i buy it from.

    On that the health authority has told my gym as it stands they can stay open bit of course this can change any time. So gonna do Wednesday workout tomorrow incase it closes Wednesday and I am on call Wednesday anyways

    I vape and went to get some vape juice. Talking with the guy there said he knows a powerlifter with a home gym looking for someone to workout with and spot so maybe another option

    If all this fails will walk, sprint, kayak and drop weight not much else i can do.

    I asked our gym if I could borrow some plates and bands and they blew me off. I was willing to let a few people come to train but I guess not. People are acting stupid about this. Still see a lot of people at Home Depot, Walmart gas stations. Etc. Nobody keeling over standing in line for toilet paper but god damn these big retailers are acting fucking stupid as shit about all this” social distances “ is what they are calling it.stay 6’ away from other people etc. I do that most of the time and still manage to get sick at least once or twice a year, don’t see how this is any different.

    Well guess it was a good thing didnt get and start running tren. Once I am sure I have no issues with gym access I may. I just got a Tee that says body built by trenbalogna sammiches so until I do run tren it is false advertising lol

    Not sure if this is still available or not, doubtful as posted a week ago. Anyone have any reviews on it, not finding many on google. I am not sure I like the safetys or the chin up, this is used for 650 and I can get better new for 100 more. 20200324_191724.jpg
