Hey guys,

I just had a question, I am finding is very hard to stick to my workouts ever since my gym closed due to lockdown. I can't really do my bench press or lateral pulldown. has anyone else come across this issue too.

[MENTION=895]Shrek[/MENTION] and [MENTION=7738]Timeah[/MENTION] will be Experts at training during Lockdown lol.

Bench Press substitute - Push Ups
Lat Pulldowns substitute - Pull Ups, even set up Barbell across something high enough to act as Pull up bar.

Definately smash the pushups.

Pushup/pullup workouts should be your jam if you got nothing else. Can do them two to three times per week.
Alternating between straight sets one day, max effort sets the next. Actually it's probably better to do two straight two sets, most and Friday for example, then a max effort Wednesday.

Lunges. That is your other ideal focus. Twice a week. One day with regularly lunging, the other day Bulgarian split squat style, deep. Do calf with those days also.

This will tie you over.

Forget you normal program of you don't have a home gym (shame on you, )

Fucked up Kunce
Dips between chairs, squat jumps, burpees, push ups, pull up.

Or find one of those outdoor gyms. Better than nothing.
