The 6 Best VR Workout Games for the Meta Quest 2
The 6 Best VR Workout Games for the Meta Quest 2

Felt like I was pretty conservative. How about you?

Stuart Phillips recommends at least .54 grams of protein per pound (1.2 grams per kilogram) of body weight. If you’re a physically active older adult, you should probably be consuming .72 to 1 grams of protein per pound (1.6 to 2.2 grams per kilogram) of body weight, depending on your physical activity level.

My arms, shoulder and back feel cooked after giving these a good go today. Ready for any future lockdowns! Still need to get some weights for the barbell but it's 20kg unloaded so good for some HIIT sets

Your home gym (pics?)
I have an elliptical machine I use every day for cardio but with gyms closed during lockdown I've been limited to bodyweight exercises which I'm getting a bit bored of. Fortunately some new stock has landed in stores in my area and I just ordered a pair of adjustable dumbells. Can't wait for them to arrive. Anyone else got a nice little home gym setup they want to share?

May lockdown fitness challenges
Gyms have been closed for more than a month and I miss my weekly boxfit and HIIT classes to work up a sweat. I decided to mix it up a bit and I registered for the May50k MS challenge and the Headspace 3046 pushup challenge. I raised about $600 between the two challenges to worthy causes but it also meant that last month I did 3046 pushups in 21 days and ran over 150km. OK I might have hobbled the last 20km as my ankle was a bit shot and it's getting a bit cold outside. The challenge kept me interested and got me out of the house for the runs. At the same time I wonder if I lived in the city or a place in total lockdown like Wuhan if I could have run around a tiny apartment for 150km worth?! Some days I like the routine but other days you HAVE to mix it up to keep it interesting and get out of your comfort zone. I'm hibernating for the winter to weigh up my options, but what are you going to do to get out of your comfort zone post lockdown?

Iso Recovery Goals
Not sure about everyone else here, but I've switched from a 4-6 gym session week and a decent eating schedule, to working from home with some home gym equipment but unfortunately cupboards and fridge full of food to graze on all day. Snacking it turns out is my arch nemesis. So I have about 10kg I want to drop as I fell back into some bad habits. Kept a decent workout schedule, an hour on most days. Combination of bodyweight, elliptical and/or rowing machine, a run or a long 10km walk. Got back on track at the start of the week and I'm down 1kg. Anyone else got lock down fails or success stories?
