    Probably not, mass gatherings aren’t actually a s big of a risk as people think because they don’t really involve most close contact.   Especially outside,  in a football crowd you’re only really a risk to the people directly around you.   I reckon the biggest risks of spread would be public transport, unis, schools (although apparently kids are less contagious so maybe less so), bars and clubs etc.

    They will probably open in July but with loads of restrictions.   Personally I’ll probably just go to them once a week to train legs and do the rest at home

    I’ve been really bad at logging my workouts of late but I’ve been keeping up the training.   Today was my birthday so I had a full day off training and also just ate a load of crap as well but I’ll be back to being disciplined tomorrow,  ive tweaked my lockdown routine to the point where I’m very happy with it now, and honestly could workout at home forever if need be.   When gyms are re opening there’s a lot of talk of booking 1 hour time slots and s**t like that which honestly I can’t be assed with, I think I’ll just book one slot a week to do squats and deadlifts and then just do everything else with my home equipment

    Fairly play mate, I’ve also followed everything exactly tothe letter so far atleast, but gonna have to disagree on this last point.  All this social distancing really does is hold back the envitable, which is that there will be a second wave and at some point, most people will get infected.   There’s just no chance this thing will be contained, think the gov have also accepted that and moved their message to ‘control the virus’.    The only way this ends is when either everyone gets infected or the vaccine comes out, vaccine is a year away minimum and there is no gurantee of a safe effective vaccine ever.   Ultimately we cannot social distance forever, too many businesses rely on some aspect of socialising and it’s just very against human nature,  if we have to have some rolling measures to stop the NHS getting overwhelmed that’s fair enough, but social distancing can’t stop this virus, we’re fighting nature and losing hard

    Gyms could operate now and you wouldn't notice any higher death rate.
    Last time I trained my gym wasn't full of terminally ill 70 year olds, 
    It's clearly not a priority for the government though, bigger issues to consider.
    Masks, gloves, perspex screens... it's all bollox. The virus has invaded every corner of the globe, it's beggars belief to think some fabric around your mouth is going to stop it.
    We'll all get it eventually despite our best efforts to shield vulnerable people. Most will live, a minority will die. That's life folks.

    I think excessive use of just about any substance is likely to lead to accelerated aging.   I think with steroids however it can be somewhat more difficult to draw the line between usage and abusage in terms of dosages etc

    Feeling nostalgic so thought I’d make a little gains timeline to share with all you guys, hope you enjoy 

    This picture was taken during the summer holiday between year 11 and sixth form, when I had just signed up to bodybuilding.com,  I was a very skinny lad, 5’9 57kg here, used to run cross country and was pretty good at that, also played a bit of hockey and football, anyway I guess I had decided I was sick of being skinny, had like 10 weeks off after finishing my GCSEs and asked my parents for some basic DumbBells as a present for my 16th birthday.  Took this picture after like a week of working out as I figured I needed a good before picture for when I was jacked as f**k (which I honestly thought at the time was gonna have from like 3 months of home workouts lol).   My original training routine was Scoobys home teen workout and for my diet I just tried pounding a f**k ton of milk and peanut butter on top of what ever I ate at school + my mum cooked,  and honestly it worked pretty well at the start.
    Awful quality pic but I’d been doing my home workouts for maybe 8 months at this point and gotten up to 65kg,  chest was the first thing to start developing well and is still my best body part these days imo.

    So this picture was taken near the end of sixth form,  I must have just turned 18 here and decided to sign up for an actual gym as I felt I’d developed about as far as I could with home workouts.   70kg 5’10

    This was age 19- after one year of semi serious training in an actual gym just before I went off to uni, was working a full time job this year and got up to about 75kg 5’11,  feel like I could have made better gains here for my first year in an actual gym but I still hadn’t learnt to eat properly,  it probaly didn’t help that I was working as a cycle courier so was probably burning ridiculous numbers of calories doing that most days on top of the gym,  was the peak of my cardio fitness however
     
    me at the end of my first year of uni age 20, stats still 75kg 5’11,  made basically no gains first year of uni as was drinking a f**k ton of alcohol and having an awful diet of ready meals and oven pizzas,  I still kept up training though which I’m glad I did,  pretty much maintained my physique which ain’t bad I’m the circumstances

    End of Second year of uni, Diet was a little bit better Learnt how to actually cook for myself and didn’t drink nearly as much alcohol.  I had decided at the start of the year I wanted to play for a football team for the year which meant playing for them every Wednesday and training once a week as well,  also decided I wanted to try and see if I could become a good tennis player as over the summer between first and second year I’d got pretty in to playing tennis so decided to take some lessons at uni and see it I could get good.  Obviously spending a lot more time playing sports meant less time lifting weights and I pretty much maintained my physique.  stats here 76kg 5’11.5 age 21
     

    picture taken a few days ago age 21.5 5’11.5 80kg.  Third year of uni diet has been the big change and I actually track macros and calories now,  try and do meal prep on the weekends and have all meals ready for the week.   I accepted that unfortunately I’ll never be anything more than mediocre at football or tennis so I may as well put everything into bodybuilding and see how aesthetic I can get.   Training has been more consistent than before, probably nearly double the volume, bit more mature than before,  don’t go out partying nearly as much,  don’t drink nearly as much either so that helps.   Look forward to updating this in another 6 months time

    It’s a bit ironic though don’t you think that you’re calling us all sheep, saying don’t belive the mainstream media narrative, do your own research etc don’t just blinding belive what you’ve been told.   That statement about Hancock you’ve just blinding believed yourself from a Facebook page or meme or wherever without researching it all yourself, I did some searching and found 0 evidence for what you claimed.   I don’t have the time to research everything you’ve talked about here but I expect I’d get similar results for most of that stuff.   
     
    So basically don’t just blindly believe the mainstream media, blindly believe a random Facebook page instead.   Perhaps not everything you hear on the BBC is 100% accurate but it’s probably a lot better than where you source your information from

    From my understanding , flu antibodies may last some time however there are dozen different strains of the flu and antibodies for one strain may not protect you against another strain.   The flu jab is different every season because different strains may be more prevalent in different years, scientists spend a lot of time researching what strains are more prevalent/ lethal in a certain year (they do yearly trials called ‘ flu camp’ you can sign up and be paid quite handsomely for participating, 2-3 grand for a couple of weeks work).   So basically you could be infected by one strain of the flu, get antibodies for it, but then next year you’re hit by a different strain that those antibodies don’t protect against.   Obviously the flu has been around for millennia, how long exactly we don’t know but certainly all of modern human history, so it’s had a long time to develop all these different strains etc.  Covid 19 had only existed for a fraction of that time, and as far as we know so far it hasn’t mutated substantially so that it can re infect people multiple times, of course over the coming years, or even decades it’s likely to mutate more and perhaps there will be different strains, some of which you may not be protected from if you’ve been previously infected.

    Got to correct a few things here, H5N1 is what caused bird flu, H1N1 is the Spanish flu and swine flu, even within a strain such as H1N1 you can get worse and less bad forms of the virus so the Spanish flu was a particularly bad form of H1N1 and eventually forms of the flu which were less virulent championed over it in the nature/evolution battle and the Spanish flu stopped circulating as other strains took over.   Bird flu is one of the most deadly flu strains out there, with a 50% mortality rate, however it does not transmit very easily at all from human to human

    Changed tactics on the weight loss front, going for 15k steps a day rather than jogging every day,   I find running for longer than about 30 mins too boring/tiring whereas I’ll happily power walk with an audio book on for 2hr a day if need be, and I’ve got all the spare time in the world rn so why not, I’m now about 80-81kg down from 83kg when I started cutting 2 weeks ago but think it’s mainly water, I took a few pics today but there’s not really a big noticable difference yet, so I’m gonna wait a few more weeks before I post any
