To say any linear progression routine is diabolical for a beginner is a bit meh in my opinion.
Easy to follow, repeating basic compound movements to drill motor recruitment, help form and build some strength.
Remember in this instance, simplicity and adherence is better than something that it complicated and optimal.
Edlo, let’s see a photo of your physique? Just curious.

That thing doesn't look like it would last 5 minutes. So much flexing.

Already got some of your parallettes from years back dude! No outdoor space but my flat building has a large indoor communal space that is slowly filling up with random gym equipment - so it'd need to be freestanding..

How's everyone coping with the lockdown exercise?
I copped a air bike recently which is kicking my arse. Can't get any bars or plates at the moment so making do with a pair of 22.5kg DB's and pull-up bar. Doing lots of CrossFit style workouts. Probably doing me some good laying off the heavier weights for a while

You got any you can link/list, spitfire?
The communal room here has a bunch of random DB and bars - so can get DBs up to 25kg, and a BB up to maybe 60+. One bench. One dip/pull-up station. Couple of kettlebells.. so it's enough, just need to get more of a routine down.
How much was the assault/air bike?

I hung a tennis ball with cement in it from the garage ceiling and it's also attached to a pin in the floor. Used exercise bands to hold it in place and can easily adjust the tension so can have a faster workout when and if needed. Found some old cricket gloves which work well with it. Total cost about a tenner. That and some skipping has become my daily home cardio workout.

I haven't done a strength workout since the gym shut just been running, I need a pull up and dip station but they are sold out everywhere.
People selling old battered weights for silly money that the scrap man wouldn't have taken away 4 weeks ago.

Anyone know anywhere with dumbbells in stock? Most places not taking order or nothing until end of May.

What’s a fair price for a pair of 20 kilo dbs?
