    You have kept your economy running so I read. But you didn't really isolate old people as I understand it.

    What irritates me at 74 is that in our State, at least, they've tried a forced isolation of everyone. It's ridiculous.

    At first our chief epidemiologist was critizised heavily. As time has passed he is now some kind of idol and Superman. I think the balance between our availability of and need for intensive care is good. At the same time a trust from government in peoples sense of responsibility to each other. Early on the message was that people are going to die, please help your neigbours to survive. Keep distance, wash hands, cover your face when coughing and try to work from home, dont wisit your old folks. But even then people die. I hope our national strategy will be good enough. Our economy is hurting, at the same time we have a good and solid economy in sweden with a social democratic goverment, backed by the parties in opposition different supportplans are on their way. These are trying times, so far none of my relatives and friends has been ill or passed away. How are you doing carson?

    Frustrated with what I perceive too be too many restrictions. But we wear a mask in shops because it's a mandate in a country that prides itself. An alarming number of people have been thrown out of work and we expect that many of the businesses will not survive the shut downs.
    There are protests in some state capitals. There certainly have been in our state capital. It's a sign that freedom is not completely dead.
    Personally, we have no illnesses. I will need a little dental work when we finally get out of this. I have not lifted a barbell in several weeks. Instead we keep up with the techniques by lifting make shift weights.
    Our coach is trying his best to keep us going but I think his business is suffering greatly. I don't know if it will survive. I am his first client.

    Report from a lazy old man, still no Corona, happy for that. Up in the north and working with the cutting of grass and fixing the house. Hot as hell, 32celsius. The beach is nice here in the north, very little people. Planning to go home in a week. Then out to test my boat and myself sailing for a couple of days for the first time. My training is suspended for a couple of month more. Hope you all old farts is doing ok and I wish you healthy strong lifts with lots of PRs.57bergstrm an elderly beginner log

    starting strength coach development program
    Until 2 1/2 weeks ago we were limited to make shift weights like rocks in buckets a few kettle bells, etc. Since then we have been back in the gym which we now call a "clinic" so we could open a little sooner. One group must leave before the next comes in. We all wear masks and wash hands frequently and disinfect our stations. Many fussy details. We fill out a form stating that we have no symptoms and get our temperature taken before we enter.

    We are all doing a modified LP. I should be back to where I was by the end of July or early August. So far no illnesses of any kind including this virus. I'm very suspicious of the extend to which we have been bossed around by the Michigan government. But we are slowly moving back towards opening up.

    I'm glad to see that you are involved in some physical activity that you enjoy.
