Obviously. climbingcue said "People not staying out of the small mountain towns, video shows it all." and posted that link. I just want to know what small mountain town he's talking about.

here's my home gym. Anyone have some good boxing workouts? I never use that heavy bag, but I bet it'd be awesome for cardio.

Cool gym setup 12ers. The heavy bag is an awesome workout. My one suggestion is warm up before going at it hard, your rotator cuffs will thank you later.
A speed bag makes a good warm up for your shoulders before hitting the heavy bag. Also if you use gloves, try not to get a pair that's too big or has too much cushion or your liable to hurt your wrist if you hit it with anything other than a 90 degree strike.
as far as types of workouts, hard to write about it-easier to just show you, but try multiple combinations, alternate jab/cross, high/low etc..., add in some elbows, knees, kicks and have fun!
Since you mention cardio, yea it could be a good cardio workout, just watch your breathing.

Folks, please stick to pre-approved obesogenic activities, like driving large gas-powered cars everywhere and ordering junk food from drive thru's.
You don't even need to get out of your car to shop, because if there isn't a drive-thru, there's always an underpaid driver available to speed around delivering whatever worthless crap you need.

We can't afford the extra health care burden right now! Please stick only to the costly lifestyle choices and risk factors that are part of the regular health care burden. Thanks!
I agree with your sarcastic comments. Obviously this is a serious situation and we need to take some precautions, but outside of NYC and a few other places, I think the biggest danger to our country is that we will become even more overweight, even more out of shape, and as a result even more immunocompromised (honestly if you eat like crap and never exercise, you are at least slightly immunocompromised). This issue would not be nearly as serious for most of our country if everyone was fit and lived a healthy lifestyle.

Recommendations for software that will go through your music library and output the beats per minute?

I found a few, but none do it easily. Lots of adding each folder, sub folder, etc. Just cumbersome.

Trying to make some treadmill play lists and want to select particular BPM for different effort levels.
If you have a good program or method you've used what is it?

Are you looking at this in order to match your cadence to the BPM of certain songs? Do you already have decent data on your own cadence (or desired cadence) at certain pace ranges?

Sorry, I know I'm not being very helpful. Just curious as to what your intentions are. Feel free to tell me to go fly a kite :-D

I just gave it a quick listen and after a few seconds of counting I thought, “Dang, pretty close to 90 BPM. That’ll give you a nice 180 steps per minute!” 180 being the seductive (yet sometimes misguided) “perfect” cadence. Then went to a website that claimed It to be 88 BPM: pretty close.

I don’t want to say that my 6-flat pace days are over quite yet, but I’ll likely never be what I once was...but maybe I’m as good, once? Eh, probably not!

A++++

Too many people look to someone else to save me, protect me, keep me from making bad decisions. Just read underlying data on the deaths in NYC...doesn't surprise me one bit. We, as a collective country, are unhealthy, overweight, eat food that is not good for us, and a large percentage of the USA is ok with that.

What a mess.....

From experience I can tell you that you will only know when your 6:00 pace days are over in retrospect. Same thing for 7:00 pace.
