Powerblocks, Bowflex, Ironmaster, or whatever else you might get all sell their own stands if you prefer to use one. They aren’t cheap though so that depends on how much you’re willing to spend. Depends on what exercises you might do too. Personally I do find a stand to be very nice to have.

As for the gym, during the pandemic I bought a weight set so I don't need to go to the gym now. For cardio I just go jogging outside.


Do you have a link to the set you bought? Just as good as going to the gym?


I would have gone to the gym if I didn’t have stuff at home. But if you have enough stuff at home, then a home gym is much better. A barbell, rack, dumbbells and bench will do A LOT. You can order a ton of stuff online these days too. I also really like resistance bands and after I got them discovered they are much more useful than I realized. There are a ton of exercises you can do with them and they are easy on the joints.

I have the dual selectech dumbbells by bowflex. They are amazing. The only drawback is that they're long so some exercises where you would bring the dumbbells in tight side-by-side are impossible.

Judging by the small sample size, I'm either a fool, a thrill-seeker or both.

Never stopped doing either with the exception of the couple weeks that those things were closed in Florida at the beginning of the pandemic. I have had some of my best gains in the gym over the last year.

Home gym. Indoor eating is highly situational - meaning how isolated we can get, what outdoor options there are, is takeout an option.

Exactly. If one is vaccinated and makes wise decisions about which establishments one visits, dining in shouldn't be a problem. I certainly wouldn't go to a small bar where people are packed in and mixing about. But sitting down at reasonably spaced table space is relatively low risk.

I've been wondering for a while if swimming laps (either at an indoor or outdoor pool) is safe if you're fully vaxxed against COVID.

Can't give scientific answer, but I would have to assume it is in that you are vaccinated and swimming laps is a fairly isolated activity.

Not seeing much evidence that the virus survives in any real quantity in pool water. The danger in restaurants is proximity and duration. Sitting far enough apart and wearing masks when not at the table drops the first, but if you sit in a room with people for over an hour, you’re breathing in a fair amount of their aerosolized droplets. If you’re vaccinated and they are, that’s probably ok, unless either of you are maskless around unvaccinated or vulnerable people afterward. I avoid it because even though I’m vaccinated and everyone else has to be here in my state, I work around some vulnerable people and even with masks on I’m still trying to be extra careful for them. That’s probably not a concern for everyone.

How about outdoor dining? Is that safe?

The aerosolized chlorine from the pool would kill any of the virus that managed to make it into your airways, so I would imagine pools are some of the safest places, actually. I wonder why nobody got the idea to open more swim up bars/restaurants during the pandemic. Pretty much would have solved the problem.

Properly spread out seems to be fine. Outdoor air gets rid of aerosol quickly, so you really have to be within literal spitting distance to be in danger.

And with the vaccine requirement, the odds of there even being an infected person is not that high.
