NFT: Barbell/freeweight exercises in your office

jc in c-ville : 2/11/2020 10:48 am
Anyone else do this?

About a month ago, bought two (10) and (20) dumbbell's that they had marked down at Target.

As we all have busy schedule, and I have a 75 minute commute each way to the office, i have und this to be a fantastic way to get in some exercises when I know I wont be worth a shit at the gym at 8 or 9 pm.

While it certainly doesn't replace the gym I have found during stressful days that is goes a long ways towards relieving.

I just perform simple arm, bicep, triceps along with shoulder.

Can one over due it? Are 3 sets of various exercises with these low weights say every other day going to cause harm when on some of those days, I do make it into gym ( not knowing I would actually get there) lifting higher weights.

I feel great and haven't noticed any negative results with soreness.

Anyone else in a similar situation with exercises in their office?

What's your goal?

I mean it's better than nothing, but I would recommend doing something more total body/intense/efficient. A few light sets of bis/tris isn't going to accomplish much.

Check out manmakers...on youtube. Basically a full body movement that you can use the 10 lbers and it will kick your ass after about 10. Mix in some burpees and lunges. Finish off with a few curls/tricep extensions if you feel the need.

...who want's to smell your reeking pits after you 'work out in the office'?

You'll look like an ass, and smell like one too.
I mean, I guess?

Unless I'm traveling I typically work from home. My office is in my walkout basement, about 10 feet from my workout room with full Squat cage with pullup bar, Bench, 600 lbs of plates and 90 lb powerblocks... lol
jc, look up bodyweight training on reddit
