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.

Where would I get something like this from? A dip/pull-up station - for indoor use..

When I google I see bigger stations which seem a waste, unless they're all similar cost..

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

Ineff had a business selling high quality outdoor ones, he might know?

IMO 'Starting Strength' is the best way to build a solid base and then move on to more advanced programs if needed

https://startingstrength.com/get-started/programs

This recommendation is about 10 years out of date, the programming in this routine is widely regarded as diabolical

Unless human physiology has changed in that time I would be surprised there if there was something drastically better as a foundation for a beginner. I do think that buying weights & launching into these on your own at home is potentially dangerous though, Calisthenics probably the best thing for complete beginners at the moment.

Anyone got a good one? I did use this before but had a basic knowledge of training already. http://www.startbodyweight.com/2014/01/basic-routine-infographic-poster.html?m=1

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..

I got some horse mats and they smelled really bad. Sent them back because of it. I'd recommend to get the proper stuff, you'll thank yourself after a while.

Someone down the street had put one of these units on the curb a few years ago, so I claimed it and have been using it since with no issues (I'm about 200 lbs)

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 use CrossFit lynchpin for a lot of them

https://www.crossfitlinchpin.com/pages/workouts

they put them all on instagram and usually include a DB only version too.

or I just go on to https://wodwell.com and search there. That is pretty good because you can type in certain equipment or movements you want included in the WOD.

There is also app you ca download called WOD Roulette which generates random workouts.

Bike was £760 delivered

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'm enjoying home and garden workouts, but I've gone from 85kg down to 81kg since my gym closed and feel like a skinny bitch.

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.
