Now I’m not talking about muscle isolation here dudes, bodybuilding isn’t what we do. I’m talking about the training you might want to do if you’ve been forced to self isolate due to the coronavirus.
As the days roll by more and more of us will be looking at the prospect of isolating ourselves from the world at large, staying home with our families, avoiding people and public places. Just because we have to isolate doesn’t mean we have to deteriorate (if you are genuinely unwell, rest, you will recover a lot, lot faster!).
Below are a few simple workouts you can do, at home, with no kit and with minimal space. Are you going to crush PB’s and soar beyond your potential doing these workouts, nope. Are you going to maintain a good level of fitness, stop yourself going stir crazy and keep some movement in your life, you bet!
One: At Home Cindy, a 20 minute AMRAP of:
5 Push Ups, 10 Sit-ups and 15 air squats.
Set a timer on your phone for 20 minutes. Hit go and do 5 push ups, 10 sit-ups and 15 body weight squats as many times through as you can in 20 minutes. Simple and savage.
Two: Leg burner, 10 rounds of:
30 air squats, 30 lunges.
Set yourself a time limit. 10 rounds would be epic but you shouldn’t be grinding this out for more than 25 minutes.
Three: Run. Just because you can’t be around other people doesn’t mean you can’t go a little run. Get out early so you don’t run into people and obviously avoid super populated areas. A cheeky run in the woods will do wonders for your soul if nothing else.
Four: Updowns and V-Ups, EMOM 30.
1st minute: 5-15 UpDowns
2nd minute: 10-20 V-Ups
Five: For time:
40 star jumps, 40 burpees, 40 air squats, 40 push ups, 40 sit-ups, 40 mountan climbers.
Rest 2 minutes then repeat.
