    Hi Jerry. I hope yo'all remain safe. The TV prognosis for USA looks dire. When this "thing" was evolving, our "powers that be" barred entry to those from the epicentre, and the Chinese govt was criticizing us for undue panicking. We were right and they were wrong.
    There is infection here from citizens returning infected from cruise ships and overseas stays, but nationwide we are self isolating, so i expect the death toll will end up low.
    Your "powers that be" seemed slow off the mark and basically ineffective.


    Monday 6-4-2020.

    Had great plans for this year, to build up strength with squats, deadlifts and clean and presses.
    Ah well, I'll do what i can with pee-wee weights and bodyweight smarts.

    Brisk walk 30 minutes.
    dumbell exercises - all done dead stop top and bottom, cat on the up, stutter reps and burns to finish.
    one arm curl . 16.6 lb . lots of reps.
    SLHR.
    one arm dumbell press.
    doubles C+J, and triples snatches with stick. lots.
    bellows breathing, 3 sets of 80.
    abdominal isolations. 5 sets of various ones, about 20 a set.

    in the evening ...
    muscle control
    posing

    I'm doing OK under the circumstances. I do have food and am trying to eat pretty clean. Luckily I do WO at home so that's not an issue.
    Our President did close the borders to the Chinese on Jan. 21 and was called a racist by his opposition. I think he is tying his best. I really don't know what the real reason for all this is. Have you been reading the thread about Corona 19 in Rips section? It sure makes you wonder. Stay well.

    Thurs 9-4-2020.

    Hi Jerry. Glad you're sorted for training and diet.
    I am sad for the suffering in the world, that is happening, and going to increase. Our country is pretty alright. The millions thrown out of work are going to be supported by social security.
    But ... those who have been part time for less than a year, and all the countless international students --- get nothing. How will they survive? I think we will presently force the govt to do something.
    The USA is a worry. i saw on tv last night a front line medical worker, who can't afford hospital cover. And the 60,000 homeless in LA. How can they be protected? Across the country there is a tragedy unfolding.
    I think of India, with hundreds of millions living hand to mouth. No work. No food. Will they starve?

    Brisk walk 30 minutes.

    Been checking out what bodyweight exercises i can throw into my training mix. Saw one that was a excruciatingly slow sink down into a deep lunge, followed by 10 reps up and down, and then, if able a repeat performance. Sounded good : i'm tough. i sank down. then just couldn't get up!
    Well that one's definitely in.

    Us here. In this state, no new cases in the last 3 days. Only 2 remaining in intensive care. The hospitals closed in expectations of a flood of victims now restarting elective surgeries. The percentage of recoveries now in the high 80's.

    In this state, no new cases for 12 days, just 7 recovering. Playgrounds and schools open, expect continuing relaxation of restrictions in coming days. The government is rightly being cautious. We don't need a second wave. Any one who wants can get a test right away, even with sniffles. Gyms opening soon --- i hope.
