So since March 16 my company has mandated all of us work from home. Knowing gyms would be closed shortly thereafter, I ordered a ton of heavy dumbells (40-110 lbs in 10 lbs increments) and an awesome adjustable bench. I live in a two bedroom two bathroom apartment in Manhattan, so this was the best I could do.
Anyway, having been on lockdown, I’ve continued to eat 3-4 meals a day and lift 4x a week. Now I haven’t been able to test my bench, squat, abd deadlift but all dumbell exercises are at or above where I left off prior to gym closures.
Anyway, I have only eaten home cooked meals courtesy of my wife who’s an amazing cook. Since 3/16 I have lost 18 lbs and a couple inches off my waist doing nothing different than eating better. As a matter of fact, I’m moving around less not walking around and commuting to work! I’m thrilled to lose fat, look better, and maintain strength.
In closing, I’m blown away by this weight loss while keeping my strength (to reiterate, have not tested the big three yet).
