I usually don’t brag about my own body but I like what I see here. My chest looking pretty good and I’m finally starting to get that bodybuilder look that I want thanks to all that bench pressing that I’ve been doing ever since I started powerlifting.
Since Covid-19 aka the Chinese Virus shut down a lot of gyms in America especially NY State, I’m out of the gym for a couple of weeks. Now I gotta find ways to keep those chest gains and hopefully get even more. I got a couple of plans… do pushups, of course. I’ll do regular pushups and knuckle pushups. Do as many as I can for a couple of sets. If I want to do even heavier pushups, I’ll do pushups with a bookbag strapped on my back and load it up with heavy books if I want to do heavy 3 – 5 sets ’cause that’ll work. I won’t lose those heavy bench press gains that way. I’ll figure out a way to do chest dips somehow too.
I don’t have my dumbbell collection anymore ’cause I sold it in a yardsale but I’ll figure out ways to work out at home still.
I’ll figure out a way to keep gains on every other body part too. For squats, since I don’t have my own squat rack, I can still do bodyweight squats with heavy backpack. I’ll figure out a way to workout calves and hamstrings. Will figure out a way to do back workouts by doing pull ups somewhere.
I’ll figure out all of this stuff by educating myself through google. If your gym is closed then don’t worry about it… you can workout at home. You can workout anywhere. Be creative and think differently.
