I love video games and PlayStation was always my go to video game system but I was always busy working on my business or just working in general in my free time. Enter the cov-19 coronavirus lockdown and everything is closed, and I cannot work on my business at all times.
I need to have some fun

Lol! Blame my new fascination with gaming, and my new ps4 on boredom, and this coronavirus lockdown.
Yep, I decided to buy the slim ps4 bundle with Madden 2020 and 3 other ps4 video games to keep me from getting bored during the coronavirus lockdown.
Truth be told, I was thinking about buying another play station gaming system before this coronavirus lockdown.
This just sealed the deal so to speak.
Anyhow; the ps4 games I bought are Mortal Kombat 11 pictured below.
Street fighter 5 champion edition which was released in Feb of 2020.
I always loved me some fighting games and I am old I grew up on street fighter and mortal Kombat:)

So, I have to workout at home, as do you.
But, the good news is you do not have to gain 30 lbs during the coronavirus lockdown you can workout at home.
I have 50 lb dumbells I do curls with. Yes, I am a beast! Applause later;)
I also have a workout bench and a tower 200 door gym.
Which I absolutely love b.t.w!
I also have;
A Chuck Norris total gym! Hey, if it is good enough for Chuck Norris, it is definitely good enough for us!
Chuck Norris kicks ass and takes numbers.
I know you have seen those Chuck Norris memes on Facebook!
Chuck Norris rocks, and so does his easy to use Total gym!
I also have a pullup bar on a door going to my garage.
The two things that I am lacking are an elliptical machine and a treadmill for home gym use.
Which are on my to do list due to the coronavirus lockdown.
I usually do my cardio at the gym, but because of the current Worlds climate, I am trying to get outside as much as possible walking, running, etc…
Gotta get my cardio in somehow!
While practicing social distancing in the process!
