Don't know what you use, but I have most of our people on MalwareBytes Anti-Malware. You can use the free version, but you have to kick the scans off yourself.

They can't remember that here, so we use the paid one that runs in real time.
I put a header, in yellow, on ANY item that originates outside our email domain. They still click sometimes, I'm pretty sure.

There are a few good ones who ask IT first.

We have PA firewalls for the remote connection VPN, and ESET corporate, which is blowing up my phone this morning with alerts. And most that I call are browsing the local newspaper COVID article. Bastages are targeting COVID as the way in.

Anyone ever use Pso-Rite for their psoas?

I’m skeptical about its effectiveness.

I would look more at a rigorous stretching routine done everyday if looking to release the psoas muscle.

I had issues in the past , found 3-4 exercises online that fit my body, and did them everyday. Eventually it got to where I only had to use 1 exercise...where you are lying down.

I would do it before I did squats.

Nice....I have seen where some people are making a killing off of used gym equipment. I guess it's one of those items you can't get busted for price gouging on.

I don't have anything other than some dumbbells and some kettle bells. I did get a pull up bar to go in the door frame, but I tried hanging some weight from me and the frame sounded like it didn't like it.

So now I do it on the rafters in my building out back. Also been doing dips with saw-horses. That worked out quite well as I can vary the width.

Good luck with everything!

Thanks. Yeah resellers are the worst. Some crazy prices out there but things still sell really fast

Welcome back amigo. Shitty outcome regarding the weight, but at least you have something. All I have is a thick blanket that I've been using outside to lay on during my workouts haha.

At least you are staying same weight. I have to believe I'm heavier, based solely on how bad my feet hurt

Yoga is cool and all, but makes my joints HURT as I stretch distantly used tendons and muscles

I'm at a point where I am having to force down food right now to stay around 3K calories. That's what I used to diet on!!

When all this is over, it's going to be hard to re-train my metabolism.

Calisthenics. My workouts are kicking my ass....but then again, I'm half the size as you guys. I'm actually seeing more results in the last month working out from home. I base this solely on the fact that I'm doing no cardio whatsoever and calories are being used for building mass rather being burned off on a machine. I guess I'll continue to eat more and continue to push my way through this. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I really hope I can get back in the gym sometime in June.

good for you bro! i'm just doing enough to get by but i'm more use to doing heavy lifting. i feel less motivated because there's a difference between someone who worksout hard with intensity...and than there's the guys who just work out to work out. hopefully shit gets back to normal here

It'll be interesting to see what happens when the gyms do open up. I wonder how many of the gym monsters are still the same size/strength when we're able to go back to the gym. I have to expect there's going to be a lot of shrinkage.

Just glad I have most of the equipment at home to maintain and maybe even make some gains if I can just get my ass more motivated.

I'm a "grower"..not a "showwer".

Seriously though...I look the same, just a smaller version of myself. But I am fighting age! I think it's going to be hard on me. When I was younger, I would gain back any loss quicker than you could blink.

I suspect that won't be the case now.
