  • Covid making things suck again

    Hi.

    Covid has been getting worse again here in Finland, and gyms are generally closed again. This is actually the first instance of alockdown has affected ​​privately owned gyms, one of which I started going to about a month ago, when I got frustrated with the fact that everyone was doing so anyway. Before that, I trained at the university gym which is at least partially publically owned and that's basically the reason why I've had to train at home so far.

    However, my current gym isn't completely closed. It is possible to book a time and train with up to 10 people in the gym at any given time. There's two problems with this option, though. It's so expensive I can probably do it once or maybe twice, during the month-long lockdown and a person is only allowed to train for 60 minutes at a time.

    So if you only had 1-2×60 minutes to train at a gym, how would you spend that? Do you think it would be worth it to spend money to use this option at all?

    Obviously, I will be training at home as well, whether I end up going to the gym or not.

    I'd probably squat and OHP one day and DL and bench the other day if I could only train 2x/wk and set things up over a 2 week cycle:

    Week 1
    Day 1
    Squat x 25-35 reps accumulated in sets of 4-6 reps @ RPE 7ish
    OHP x 15-25 reps accumulated in sets of 3-5 reps @ RPE 7 ish
    Day 2
    Deadlift x 12-20 reps accumulated in sets of 3-5 reps @ RPE 7ish
    Bench x 35-45 reps accumulated in sets of 6-8 reps @ RPE 7 ish

    Week 2
    Day 1
    Squat x 12-20 reps accumulated in sets of 3-5 reps @ RPE 7ish
    OHP x 35-45 reps accumulated in sets of 6-8 reps @ RPE 7 ish

    Day 2
    Deadlift x 25-35 reps accumulated in sets of 4-6 reps @ RPE 7ish
    Bench x 15-25 reps accumulated in sets of 3-5 reps @ RPE 7 ish

    I'd do some outdoor or at-home conditioning and calisthenics too, but that'd be workable.
