This American lockdown protest against gyms being closed was the ultimate self-own
We’ve been known to go to the gym every now and again and we can imagine it would be mildly frustrating if you’re into that sort of thing and it’s closed because of lockdown.
But lockdown’s a lockdown, right?
Except these American gym bunnies took their protest to the streets. Specifically, the street outside their gym where they demonstrated exactly how exercised they are about the whole thing by … doing exercises.

And as lots of people pointed out, it was the ultimate self-own.
IF YOU CAN DO SQUATS AND PUSH UPS ON THE SIDEWALK, YOU CAN DO THEM IN YOUR LIVING ROOM AND DON’T NEED TO BE AT THE GYM, YOU ABSOLUTE DING DONGS.

Protestors call for gyms to reopen by… proving they don’t need gyms?

So, they’re doing squats & push-ups outside of the courthouse…they’re just proving that they don’t need a gym to exercise. #COVIDIOTS

We also liked this (because it would be us).
And just like the gym normally, half the people are standing around doing nothing.
