    Today
    Pull Ups
    5-3-4-3-5 (to the beep) 1:30 rest between sets
    2x3 Neutral Grip
    2x3 Chin Ups
    10x Negatives
    Then using 15kg vest as weight
    5x10 single arm bent over row
    5x5 Hammer Curls
    5x10 Two handed curls
    8x Pull Up negatives lowering as slowly as I could.

    Then warm up of the legs (still mashed from the day before)
    3 miles in 24:12
    Which I'm very happy with, as it's my first run after having a chest infection where I couldn't do much heavy breathing without coughing my lungs up.

    For the lads here that are part of an athletics club, are you still training as usual or have your sessions been cancelled? For me, all the summer games/meets have been cancelled.

    @kimbo96

    All my running club events have been cancelled until further notice. I’m sure everyone’s in the same boat!

    I alternate my permissible 'daily exercise' between running and cycle training. Never been a safer time to cycle train on the public highway because so few cars are on the roads.

    Combining both activities with picking up essential supplies for less able neighbours.

    Thanks mate! Taken a good while to get there, feels great though.

    Yeah so focusing on the RMFA as my main exercises. Weight reps of those / assistance exercises / body weight reps / variations. It’s kinda tough to get a lot of heavy leg work in... but my area is quite hilly so I suppose it balances out!

    Nice one mate, whats your BFT time if you don't mind me asking?
    I mainly need to improve my sprints and hill sprints as this is what I fell behind on in the endurance course.

    Yesterday 7x6 pushups and Today same as
    today managed 4 miles in total.
    Ran about 2.5km to a quite spot even though it’s quite eveywhere! Done my sprint Interval training as usual never ran to the quite spot so they weren’t my best sprints! Ran back then another 2.5km.
    It was a nice day but very quite over here strange only seen one car. That’s me done running wise till Wednesday, hope everyone on the forum is in good health!

    I’ve no idea to be honest I haven’t done one for ages, not since I did my PJFT! I’m hoping the up-and-down-ness of my routes, coupled with sea winds, will give my legs the boost they need!

    Upper day today
    Heavy bench press
    Inc bench.
    bent over rows
    Also doing some lifts to help with the pull ups at home (basically table rows) and heavy back bent over row variations.
    Accessory lifts, shoulder press/flys, tri cep dips, and other dumbbell lifts)

    just a question does anyone know how I could try and do pull ups at home or would I definitely have to get a bar ? All my doors are short for me if that makes sense I’d have to hang if I did get one !
    Many thanks

    @LilInac using a tree? or if you have a garage, find a beam that can take your weight and sand the top edges so they're rounded and that'll be a decent representation of the beam at prmc, thats what i did anyway and i actually find it easier on a beam than a regular bar now
