    2020 Workout Thread

    Thanks Grinder. I agree that you would find more selection at the gym instead of a home gym but building up some weights at home would be a good thing. I would agree that Planet Fitness falls short of expectations and I don’t like how their squat racks are really connected Smith machines. The price is right though. I used to go to a great small gym in Downers Grove at ATI Physical Therapy but it closed down. If I can get a treadmill, some hand weights, a bench press, a squat rack, something to push and pull and an area to do abs I’ll be okay since that was my workout. My body frame is basically 6’2 210-220 so I’m skinny fat.😂

    2020 Workout Thread

    So I have been debating this for a while now, ever since I cancelled my gym membership because of the pandemic and to keep our now almost one year old son safe. Is it better to get workout equipment for home and lift at home or is it better to just go back to the gym? My routine was to workout 3 times a week, using the gym 1-2 times each week and running outside the other times. Now I am lucky to get two runs in. I sit working at a desk for a living and have noticed some weight gain (I haven’t weighed myself but I’m not as strong as I used to be) so I am trying to figure out what makes more sense, buying weights and lifting at home or going to the gym? I should say that I haven’t found many gyms near me (northwest suburbs) with a swimming pool as I think I’d like to swim laps on cross training days, but I could just go to a gym like Planet Fitness to get my workout in. What gyms do people use? What do you like about the gym compared to working out at home and vice versa? Is it worth the money to invest in weights at home? I’m case this matters, my goal is to shed some weight (let’s say I’m probably 10 pounds more than I’d like to be) and want to build up some muscle again. What are some suggestions for someone who never really figured out a schedule for lifting and just tried to mix cardio with upper body lifts and leg lifts (as in I have no schedule or routine and lift randomly)?

    He’s a player that was under team control. He is also a player that appears to be a slap hitter. It will suck to see him with the Cubs going forward but unless he gets better I don’t think he will be an All Star. Certainly not franchise breaking. They may have dodged a bullet with not bringing back McCann this year. They definitely need a defensive catcher, at least one starting pitcher if not two, adding more arms to the pen and an actual second baseman and right fielder. I’m not sure if they can meet those needs but if they want to win a World Series that is what is needed.

    White Sox Dave and John Cusack slap fight

    The guy just looks like a douche. I didn’t read his content before and won’t now. Just give your stupid point a rest already.

    And That's a White Sox Home Playoff Winner !

    Already better than the 2020 playoff results. Let’s hope Rodon can go a decent amount of innings tomorrow with voo doo cane guy’s help and luck will be on our side to send this back to Houston. Not sure if the fans will all show up tomorrow with it being a workday and the scheduling being as stupid as it is. The offense needs to show up in a big way. Go get it tomorrow! Sox in five!

    ALDS Game 3 - HOU @ CWS - 7:07pm CDT

    Thomas Francis Hallion (born September 5, 1956) is the absolute worst American umpire in Major League Baseball (MLB) who has worked in the National League (NL) from 1985 to 1999 and throughout both major leagues since 2005. He was the Most Valuable Player for the Chicago White Sox in game 3 of the 2021 ALDS for legalizing baserunners to run anywhere on the field if they are attempting to deflect throws. Looks like someone’s mad at Tom Hallion.😂

    The third camera loves looking at Kimbrel pause and gaze into space. Why?

    Unload it, do what you can with Rodon and whoever can pitch tomorrow and hope for a gem from Lynn in game five. That should be the plan but it all starts with tonight.

    Would a grand slam by Hernandez forgive him for past sins? edit: Too many ground balls.
