    brilliant advice.
    only thing i would add is never ask your dog to give his paw for food or treats because if you do, the pooch will spend the rest of its life scratching at your legs for treats.
    oh yeah, another thing - get a toy that is only played with on walks. never bring the toy into the house or garden.

    Lol, it's a kids kit, though it would be quiet with it being small.

    These Will Help To a certain extent. As will soundproofing the room (can be costly to do this though). Drums by nature are just damn loud. Electric is a good option as @Bensif said. But with a standard kit, mesh heads will make a big difference, as will a dampener in the bass drum, low volume cymbals and using brushes or rods instead of sticks (but no player ever wants to do this typically). The best advice would be simply go out lol.

    Your surprised drums are noisy...
    Try putting a quilt or blanket inside

    Electric mate. Even with dampeners / silencers they still make quite a bit of noise. Electric you won’t notice as much bar the bass pedal if it’s upstairs.

    You can buy 'silent tips', they are silicone or rubber and go over the ends of the drumsticks.
    EXAMPLE

    Random thread but any drummers on here? I've got my son a small drum kit for lockdown 3.0 (basic set up of Tom, snare, bass  and a cymbal) and fxuk me..... It's loud and driving me insane. 
    Anyone know how to quiet the sound on the cheap whilst still keeping the drums playable?

    Tis true. I'm a short at5e with pencil legs and can do a muscle up but not from a dead hang. I need a little bit of momentum from lowering myself to power myself up enough to get over the bar

    Home gym all day long.
    Can set up everything for full workout (with a little bit of smart exercise selection) during my warm up, get the music on, get my head down and get done

    Quick question.
    If you were unlucky enough to catch this and ended up in ICU, would you still be claiming it's a myth or would you accept that as evidence?
    I ask as there seems to be a growing trend of covid deniers changing their mind after catching it.

    I tried one of those..they are good amps and I think they have an effects loop so you could get a pedal or two for a good metal sound (boss do some good ones) if your not comfortable replacing pickup.
    As for signature tone... You can't get that from an amp. You could walk on stage and pick up Dave gilmours guitar and play through his set up but you will never sound like him (you can insert pretty much any other top guitarist into that sentence) so just focus on your own sound

    For me, weak/inactive glutes were the cause of so many injuries. Glute activation is part of every warmup regardless of what I'm training now

    I was lucky enough to get physio for a couple of months with the senior physio from the area (I am a complicated case) who is well respected and she was quite clear that hip thrust / glute bridge type exercises are essential for everyone. Iirc, the argument was that most people nowadays regardless of training or not, have forgotten how to fire their glute muscles and this produces alot more force and strain on the knees, even during walking.

    Slow single leg squats onto a box / bench are a great way to build upto single let squats.
    Step ups are also a great quad exercise. Start low and build up. Let the leg you step up with do the work, focus on trying not to push up with the trailing leg 
    Single leg Romanian deadlift for the hamstrings glutes etc is a killer aswell.
