As the home gym with a handle, I don't think you can do better than kettlebells. I have lots of toys and don't use my KBs that often right now, but if I had to choose just one tool, that would be it. Kettlebell, calisthenics, some running or swimming and you're golden.

I’ve been having trouble finding any decent ones online. Only odd sizes available.

I was ahead of the curve, bought all mine years ago. Trying to sell my 88's on Craig's List. No luck yet. I just don't use them and want to take advantage of the market.

Did any of you listen to the podcast Mike Mahler put out with Steve Cotter last week? 2 hours and 38 minutes. I like both guys, but who would spend listening to anyone for 2 hours and 38 minutes? I skipped around, Cotter has some real interesting philosophies.

Remember when Cotter challenged garm to a death match?

Where is that thread?

Whatever happened to Garm anyways?

I can’t read the article but it’s been tough to get anything here. There’s been a few articles written about a gym owner named Marc Miller who has become “the kettlebell king of NY” by hustling all over the tri state área to get his hands on any equipment he can and resell it.

My guess is that about a month after the gyms open back up there will be a lot available on craigslist.

Yes. Werd on da skreetz is that resale of fitness gear will be popping once this moronic closure is over.

Good time to be a long time player in the home fitness game. You'll be able to pick up some primo shit at a steep discount. Total buyer's market on gently used iron and treadmills/bikes.

Yeah I'm starting to slowly see prices coming down here on local classifieds. It's been a source of amusement during the quarantine.

Local online stores are now getting certain stock back in too, at regular prices, so there's a lot of gougers now who look stupider.

Something that was eluding me was a pair of damn dumbbell handles with screwlocks! I received a brand new pair from a local store today. I ordered some in April from Ali Express, and there's been a massive delay. Covid-related supply issues? Dodginess? The store has been forthright with me, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
