Apolgies for bumping this old thread - I am struggling to motivate myself during the lockdown to do much, if any, exercise…

I was shocked to find that walking to the fridge to get a beer doesn’t count! In the UK we’re allowed out for an hour a day for exercise - which is something I am doing every day. But beyond that - nothing!
 

Any tips, ideas or help out there for people stuck indoors most of the time? (with no exercise equipment to speak of)

No fate but what we make - apart from force dyads!

I have to admit my fitness level has decreased over the past 2/3 months - even going for a brisk 30 minute walk can leave me a little short on breath.

Soon we will be able to do more - maybe get a cycle and do that, go outdoors and see some scenery, instead of the inside of the same 4 walls, and get fitter while doing this 😃

Starting in around January I decided to do some daily wrist exercises for my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and while I was at it I decided to start doing pushups. For context I couldn’t do a single pushup when I started, just half-pushups with my upper body. But by the end of April I could do over 40 full pushups in a row, as well as some simple weightlifting and wrist exercises. Carpal Tunnel is much improved and I feel better. Last month I was dealing with some stomach mess, probably IBS, which knocked out my desire to exercise, but that cleared up by the end of the month and I started the pushups again. Now I’m back up to 22 at once in just a week or so.

My tip is to find a place where you won’t be bothered and make the time every day to do the exercises, even if it’s at 3:00 in the morning and you really just want to go to bed. It only takes me 15 minutes to do a full range of exercises and even if you don’t feel like it you can almost certainly do a little bit. At least that’s what I have been telling myself and it’s mostly been working so far, IBS hiatus notwithstanding.

What a grand and intoxicating innocence. How could you be so naive? There is no escape. Come, lay down your weapons. It is not too late for my mercy.
