      i havent missed a session during this nightmare since a friend of mine owns his own facility. we arent required to wear a mask at the main facilities i go to but the base facilities require one while you come in and when you are done with your set. all the gyms are during daily or weekly sanitization on the facilities and base does them every single day. i am like you, i wipe down all the equipment before and after i use it and use sanitizer religiously. i also try to maintain distance between anyone i am talking to even close friends of mine. we had a huge uptick in cases in our county, so you really never know, esp my buddies that are still on active duty.

      funny thing about the whole situation with the military is, they went back to normal ops and the cases shot through the roof. they didnt blame it on packing mother fuckers in on top of each other but on guys not being responsible. on the other hand they put them on lock down for exposure and the fools have video game parties and go out into town even though they arent supposed to. an old training partner of mine is a unit commander and since they test on monday and tuesday and get results on saturday and sunday he gets the notifications in the gym. i was standing there talking to him he got 7 positives in under 10 minutes and by 20 mins before i left he had 10 more. all for a marine corps birthday manditory unit function.

      so even the military is stupid

      I know what you mean my friend. I see so many people too close to each other, etc. I don’t near anyone even when I’m at a store if I can help it. Just can’t be too careful.
      I missed going in the gym when they closed. I pulled out the old P90x DVD’s and just did those till they opened up again lol

      Thankfully my gym is open so I'm able to train. No masks required either, which is good for me when I'm lifting heavy. I always clean before and after using everything and try to be as safe as I can. Seems like everyone for the most part cleans and tries to be safe, at least at my gym. There are still the random dumbasses here and there that don't give a damn. I know several areas throughout the country are locked back down, so I'm thankful I can still workout. My area shut down for about a month back at the beginning of summer and it sucked.

      I went to the gym last night and now they are starting something new. You have to put your name on a waiting list and go sit in your car and wait for them to call you. It was an hour wait last night. They said they are limited to only 27 people at a time. This is in a huge gym, must be 40,000 square feet gym. I looked in and it looked fucking empty and I said "I have to wait for an hour to workout? There is hardly anybody here!" He said ' I know, sorry man, its what we have to do"...ridiculous. People have to go and wait in their car to workout in a gym that is damn near empty. You almost have the whole gym to yourself, while other people are outside in the cold waiting for their turn. .

      Of course, I live in a blue state which is completely run and controlled by democrats who believe Americans do not deserve to have freedom. I live in a state where people get arrested for going to church on Sunday

      Here are most risky places for catching Covid 19. Gyms are a 8 out 9. Just be careful, I go the dead times of days. I take care of elderly people, so I have to be very careful. And yes bencing 450 and deadlifting 500 for reps is ***** wearing a mask is *****!!!


      Moderate-High Risk: 7
      Going to a hair salon or barbershop
      Eating in a restaurant (inside)
      Attending a wedding or funeral
      Traveling by plane
      Playing basketball
      Playing football
      Hugging or shaking hands when greeting a friend

      High Risk: 8
      Eating at a buffet
      Working out at a gym
      Going to an amusement park
      Going to a movie theater

      High Risk: 9
      Attending a large music concert
      Going to a sports stadium
      Attending a religious service with 500-plus worshipers
      Going to a bar

      Man that's crazy! Some people blow my mind at how ignorant and careless they are. There's a guy I work with exactly the same way. He came into work not too long ago hacking and coughing all over the place. He was supposed to be in one of my afternoon meetings, so I canceled it because I knew he'd show up hacking all over the damn conference room. I don't understand why anyone would even show up to work like that in a time like this. He disappeared later in the afternoon, so I'm assuming someone (probably security) made him go home. I seriously watch people sometimes and wonder how the hell they made it as far as they have.

      The gym , we go to, requires a mask at all times. They are getting a bit lax though, and I am glad. We are also in a blue state so a lrge percent are following. Fuzo, well he still isnt masking but they leave him be most of the time. I told him to just tell them " It's cool, I already had Covid" lol. Working out with masks is a big adjustment and I do sweat a whole lot more

      our facility is huge also and hasnt gotten to that point just yet. they did it after the first lock down. we have a 10pm to 5am curfew in effect now even though all the le in the surround counties and ours said point blank on the news they wouldnt be enforcing it. our gyms are all 24/7, so the manager says hey guys if you plan on coming in during curfew times we are going to dim the lights and please park in the back haha

      Our socialist democrat governor has been bragging how he and his husband wear masks all the time. Well, last week both of them came down with covid. So if youre always masked and still caught it wtf? Masking doesnt work. All it does is fuck people up psychologically, especially children
