Today was a little weird. The laundromat and the gym are both 1/2 block from my place. So I started laundry, then went to the gym, did most of my lifts, went back to the laundromat and put it all in the dryers, went back to the gym and finished the lifts, and did cardio. Not the first time I've done this, but I was wiped out by the time the laundry was done...

Floor press x3
Shoulder press x3
Tricep pushdown x3
Shrugs x3
Front delt raise with band, x3
Side delt raise with band, x3
Tricep extension machine, x3
Farmer's carry x3
Face pulls x3

25 minutes on the treadmill

Took yesterday and today off. Will resume limited workouts tomorrow with resistance bands and 1 dumbbell (2-7.5 lb donuts and 2-2.5 lb donuts for 20 lbs). That's all I could make room for in the car. Can't quite get the kind of workout I'd get at the gym from those, but at least it's something...

I just wasn't motivated tonight...

Dumbbell curls x3
Floor press x4
Bodyweight squats x3

And that's it...working 11 hour days, starting at 5AM is killing my motivation to do anything but eat and sleep...

You don't even need weights. I don't know how heavy your bar is. (The standard bar at a gym is 45 lbs but a lot of the ones you get with a home gym kit are lighter.) You can just use the bar for lots of repetitions and that will help build strength, and you can improvise weights. Get after it!

Returning back to this.
I fell of the exercise horse badly.
It started last holiday season..
lots of eating.. travel with the gf..
then on my first run after the holidays pulled my hamstrings running in shorts in the cold.
(and i was so pleased so quick my run still was despite it being the first one in 4 weeks).
so then No running for me for 3 weeks..
but.. when i wasnt running it as de motivating and i dindt do gym either.

Then the pandemic hit and we were supposed to stay indoors in this jurisdiction plus gym closed = no exercise
Then I was quarantined due to suspected infection
then again not much to do and staid iin doors..

Only in past 6-8 weeks have I been slowly getting back into it

to minimize injuries i started with 3 ruck marches a week.
Maintained that for a few weeks.
as of last week i use milky jugs for should workouts (still no gym here)
and as of today had my first run since that one in January..
It was slow but it was a run..
capped off 5 days in a row exercising...

The ruckmarches got my muscles/joints/tendons trained up so that I could run...

I forgot to post my Sunday workout, which was triceps/chest/shoulders. No cardio though. Hopefully I can get back into it at the hotel tomorrow, Wisconsin just opened health facilities back up. It was 92° today and I worked 12 hours in a machine cab with no A/C so I'm too shot to work out tonight...

Light workout at the hotel gym. Their cable machine was broken and the weight bench was kind of sketchy so I didn't do a full workout...

Floor press x3
Front delt raise x3
Lateral delt raise x3
Bent over rows x2
Tricep kickbacks x2
Hammer curls x4

2 miles on the treadmill, at a fast walk

Should be worth about 350 calories burned...
