I built a slant board as recommended by the kneeovertoesguy, and am going to do squats on that, and do the nordic ham curls also.

Last time I played basketball. 1995. Got to relearn all skills over again. If you're aging, don't quit BB. It may help keep you feeling younger.

Oh yea! Just did the ATG split squats (KOTGuy) and nordic ham curls. Excellent leg workout. I'll be doing these 3 times per week. I never did these type exercises before. The nordic I only can do partials for now obviously.

More Nordic curls today. I do this setup so I can do full repetitions. Stretch bands to help me do full reps. A short nylon tow strap at the bottom of the door to keep legs down (not pictured).

Bummer. Seems I got mild case of Covid. Started feeling sick this morning. Maybe I can drop a few pounds while sick!

I think I caught it in a taxi. The taxi drivers have their mask below their chin when they don't have a passenger, and put it up when they arrive at my apartment. Defeats the whole purpose of the mask unless the windows are wide open.

I went ahead and did some small Nordic curls.

My hams are atrophied real bad.

My goal for the end of the year is to do a half Nordic curl without assistance. :strong:

Having COVID is bad long term even if you don't die, I hear many people have long term breathing problems when exercising, even well after recovery
So I would get vaccinated, but it's too late now.

I'm vaccinated also. Fortunately, no breathing problems so far.

My Covid really mild, but still, I have to stay home for 6 more days. I got the Moderna vaccine last April.

I got tested for Covid and didn't have it anyway.

I got to lose weight big time. Going on a 24 hour, zero calorie fast as of now. 9 am where I'm at.
