    What are people's views on what they are going to do to continue training or at least maintain their gains if they close all gyms for an extended period?

    Has this actually been discussed or are we just speculating?

    I’d have to train in my mates garage I suppose, but he doesn’t have much kit. I could squat and deadlift and barbell row and shrug and use dumbbells for everything else so I’d make a do

    Got a squat rack numerous different bars and acquired a bench last week so I’m alright.

    Also plenty of spare ale

    Just need to order a bag/bracket

    Got a dip/chin/ab station so weighted chins, dips, push ups, and, skipping, running and squatting with the Mrs on my back for reps will do

    It does concern me. I’m down to my last 4 back machines in the garage. Can’t train like a pro like that. Worlds gone mad

    I don’t see them forcing gyms to close whilst all the kids are still going to school (germ/illness hotbeds) and the majority of adults are still going to work

    And I don’t see how they can shut the schools anytime soon as that means adults will stay home to look after them, therefore businesses will struggle, people won’t be getting paid so spending less. All adds up to an even bigger hit on the economy

    Everyone needs to man the fuck up and get on with it. If a flu can finish u off your basically fucked anyway so who gives a fuck. Just let it play out as nature intended
