Because of the fact that I am a carer for my ninety year old plus grandparents, this outbreak of Covid-19 means that I have decided to self isolate myself whilst I do NOT have the virus in order to ensure that they do not get the virus. Naturally this means that I will not be able to resume my gym sessions at the gym (more's the pity) but it does mean that I will now have a little more time to myself (as the local doctors have prescribed something for my grandmother who is suffering from a panic disorder to ensure that she is able to go to sleep). Therefore I have decided to invest in some resistance bands, but would like to ask members opinions on their merits (or otherwise) on the understanding that our house is not that big and therefore dumbells are not an option.
"Great heavens, what is there to adulate in me? Am I particularly intelligent, or remarkably studious, or excruciatingly witty, or unusually accomplished, or exceptionally virtuous?"
