    Anyone here like UFC?

    Jackson is a part time amateur who is only in the UFC as an opponent for Punk. He could have knocked Punk out in 20 seconds and he'd still only be on a cable card or PPV prelim. I thought Whittaker won the main event and I'm glad he did. It would have been a mess if Romero beat the champion considering he's missed weight for two title fights. Weight cuts aren't going to get any easier considering his age, so it might be better that he moves on to fun fights now. Holm vs Nunes would be good. Nunes has really developed and started showing some fight smarts, but Holm has shown several times what a clever fighter she is. Winner of that should face Cyborg in a champ vs champ fight.

    Tabletop Gaming - oh dear I'm board

    I was talking with my wife the other week about two-four player boardgames the other week. I've watched some episodes of tabletop on Geek and Sundry, but they play so many and it's difficult to know where to begin. Will read through this later and try and look up a few of the suggestions.

    Home (contents) insurance

    What about tiles? I've always assumed they were treated like floorboards i.e. home insurance. Just a guess though.

    Home (contents) insurance

    I think ours covers bikes under £500 automatically, but you have to declare if they are over that. Similar for jewellery and general possessions, except the limit is £1k. It's things like having to carpet a house from scratch that you need to factor in as well. I think hard flooring/floorboards are buildings insurance, but carpets would be included in contents.

    Fortnite - All the kids are playing it

    How long does each game take to play? Or does it depend if you're any good and manage to survive more than 5 minutes? A friend downloaded it on my PS4 2 or 3 months ago, but I haven't turned my PS4 on since then Keep meaning to give it a go.

    Parkrun (and general running) thread

    Thanks. I might give them a go. I need a new pair of shoes as the fabric/padding bit at the heel of one of my shoes has completely gone and they're starting to rub.

    I had that with Dele Alli on one of my saves. I declared interest, he became unhappy and requested a transfer. The asking price was £80m I think. I thought I'd splash out and made bids up to £90m that kept getting rejected. Come summer, the asking price was down to £50m and Spurs rejected it again. Accepted £62m (I think) in the end.

    The OTF gym/fitness club

    I think with fitness there are lots of right answers depending on goals, free time, equipment available etc. and being flexible and chatting about different approaches is the best way to be. It's also good to mix it up to stop yourself getting bored. Some people take the gym very seriously, but I mainly exercise so that I can eat pizza without getting fat I've got a friend who keeps telling me to try German volume training for a few weeks, so I need to start reading up on that. Anyone got experience doing it?

    The OTF gym/fitness club

    I think we're talking about this with a different expectation of what a beginner might be able to do If you're bashing out multiple sets of 25 press ups and 100 squats, I'd argue you're not a beginner! Also, by doing variations like spidermans, pike, wide, narrow, pseudo planche, claps etc. you can bring the reps down. Similar for squats, if you find it easy then you move to pistol squats or jump squats. Point being, there are variations you can do to make bodyweight exercises more challenging if you haven't got access to a gym or weights. If the goal is to build muscle as quickly as possible, calisthenics isn't going to be the right choice, but you can certainly build strength, particularly the functional strength that SSM mentioned in his first post, and muscle by doing it. And a gym membership is obviously never going to be a bad thing, unless you don't go! Ultimately, as you say, the key is finding something you can enjoy.

    I did also say space to lay on the floor... If you can lay on the floor, you should have space to do press ups and squats! Home workouts will always have limits based on the space available and what your goal is, but you really don't need much space and it's a great way to get started.
