    The reason for that is we're tribal in nature. Loyalties always trump logic in the name of survival.

    Whats the script in England. Are your gyms closed again? Or certain cities where its a higher lockdown?

    Manchester looks to be next on the hit list. Tbh don't think anywhere is safe until something changes.

    It’s all looking like another little closedown everywhere. More and more restrictions going in all the time.

    Picked up some extra weight plates the other day when this was rumoured, before the prices go sky high again

    Probs will only be a 2 week period but better have them and not need them

    I hope it's not the case. Manchester seems to be resisting so far.

    I just hope everyone lets the fines go to court....
    At least until one gets overturned.

    Manchester resisting as well as push back in London going to tier 2 is probably gonna force boris’s hand to go in to a National lockdown

    Then we just need people to defy that and this shit show is really getting somewhere

    And I think we’ll see plenty of businesses defying a national lockdown tbf, we’ve really reached a critical point in time, even a 2 week lockdown is curtains for thousands and thousands of businesses so they don’t really have a choice, hopefully they have the balls to step up and do what needs to be done

    Time to show the nonces in no10 who really has the power. 66 million against a handful

    If your shit scared of a virus that kills 0.2% stay at home and “stay safe”, but keep your mouth shut and stay off social media, your free to do that, but let the rest of us get on with fighting for our right to put food on the table and have some semblance of a life

    Screenshot_20201016-111001_WhatsApp.jpg Looks like gyms can remain open depending on local authorities views.

    the last data released showed the track and trace was like 0.032 per 100,000 or something stupid like that, traced to gyms. you've also got the fact that the average gym goer is probably healthier than the average pub or restaurant regular, so there's a case to be had that the client is low risk of "burdening" the NHS through complications.

    I'm day 7 of having Covid. Dropped tren after positive result and i'm still utterly fucked going up a set of stairs. really draining and hard to catch my breath. don't know if anyone has done any intense exercise at high altitudes but its that kind of feeling of being unable to get enough air into your lungs, tachycardia as well.

    since Covid started ramping up, i've been quite on top of Vit-D supplementation as that seems to be linked with a lower risk factor with Covid. I also stopped taking any ACE inhibitors as that seems to be a risk factor for complications. started taking 20mg/day cialis instead which is keeping BP out of Stage 1 Hypertension due to the gear that is still swimming around in my blood, despite only having a cruise dose last week. its fairly manageable as an otherwise "healthy person" but its definitely nothing like flu. its like pneumonia combined with like ultra high BP that you'd get from taking a lot of m-tren.

    Bad luck getting it on tren, can't really think of anything else worse to be coupled up with it! Get well soon!

    A serious bodybuilder would have seen this coming after the first lockdown and sorted himself a way of training if it happened again
