    This is why a public gym is better. It's not due to lack of equipment(although at the moment it might be). I have loads of equipment and even use to have a leg press but got rid of it. For me I'm ok once I start but it's getting started that I find hard. It's easy to say to yourself I'll do it a bit later but then it gets too late and you think fcuk it, I do it tomorrow.  
    When you go to a gym you go to a place just to train and you don't want to make it a wasted trip. And you can go straight after work and get it done before going home. If you go home, you sit down and get comfy and then you can't be bothered.

    monkeybiker reacted to swole troll in Self trt, carona virus, hospitalised   
    A family member of mine is doing front line work in an ICU specifically created and waiting to treat severe cases of covid-19 and they've been briefed that if the water accumulation on the lungs is too great to 'dry them out' at a cost to the kidneys ie permanent kidney damage as collateral for saving their life.

    I don't remember the means by which they do 'dry you out' (I'd assume IV diuretics) this was just the terminology this person used in their description but we were having a lengthy conversation at the time so it kind of got glossed over.
    Anyway the point I'm making is by the time you are in an intensive care unit, you are dead without them, which is always the case with IC, you are dependent on the staff and machines to stay alive so again declining test really wont be at the forefront of your mind.

    I say to you and to everyone reading this, whether you take this all seriously or not, your number one goal right now should be staying healthy and doing your part to minimize the strain on the NHS.

    EDIT - 

    it was an IV of furosemide

    and they'll be put on dialysis if needed, the kidneys will still take a hit but as I said there comes a point where life is the only remaining goal at a cost to anything else.

    As far as isolation is concerned it would make more sense for the ones sent home to stay home and the ones working to keep working. 
    I'd rather be one of the working group anyway. You get 25% more pay than the guys sat at home and you get to go somewhere other than the house each day.

    Depends how strong you are. 2 or 3 people stood together upstairs won't fall through the ceiling so if your squatting and deadlifting reasonable amounts you should be fine. Biggest potential casualty will be plaster on the ceiling below particularly if you don't manage putting stuff down in a controlled way. It will be the impact that does the damage.
