Just a regular one. I don't usually use it, but I haven't worked out much lately and I'm gradually getting myself back in the groove before I switch to the Max Trainer, which is crazy intense.

I'm using a Yoga mat to cushion the tush, but it doesn't do much.

Farmboy or old man strength workouts . With the pandemic began to appreciate the use of other types of equipment than the traditional barbells or dumbbells for strength training.

I've also started to utilize tools for (explosive and dynamic) strength training. Started to do abbreviated training for the summer months...

1. Single Kettle Bell Swings - 35 (reps) [ this is a full body workout]
2. Heavy Resistance Band Shoulder Press - 35 reps

=====================================
Other types of equipment for functional "strength" work
1. SandBells ( can range from 1lbs. to 70 lbs.)
2. SandBags (think of weighted duffle bag)
3. Club Bells (* can go from 1 lbs. to 45 Lbs.)
4. Mace (Long Club Bell)
5. Thor's Hammer
6. Resistance Bands (Heavy for strength work - Light for joint repair or added resistance for Kettlebells)

An hour's workout in the neighbor's pool.
This might be my summer work out plan, the bone spur on top of my left tibia makes it annoyingly painful to walk, to do more than 45 minutes of bike.

Water aerobics and hydrotherapy this week. Arthritis sucks (have bone spurs in the right foot, right ankle, and left knee/top of the tibia)
Next question, what did I wear?

Over the last 4 days, I spent time in the pool, getting at least 30 minutes of rehab work done.
Don't get arthritis is opposing joints!

A 40 minute walk in the high humidity then 30 minutes of skinny dipping.

2, 20-minute mall walks
2, 40-minute pool aerobics.

Looks like I'll have to see an orthopedist about the bone spur in my knee
