If you feel like COVID19 has taken over your life, it HAS! You can’t get on Facebook without seeing it, you can’t go get a beer at your neighborhood brew pub and now you can’t go to your local gym.
While much of what is going on around us is currently out of our control, it IS still possible to get in a good workout at home, and with very little equipment. Last I checked dumbbells and fit balls have not had the same demand as toilet paper. You can still get them locally, and for sure you can still get them online.
The good news is you don’t need much to do a LOT when it comes to strength training at home. Initially, you can also do a very substantial workout with no equipment.
Always have a plan, and track your progress. Don’t just wing it! Recognize the exercises you avoid (i.e. side plank) and knock them off the list first.
The internet is littered with exercises you can try. Unless you have time to do strength training 3-5 times a week, I suggest creating a full body workout (i.e. no need to have a legs day and an arms day). I always focus heavily on core because core stability equals distal mobility. If you take nothing way from this blog, take that and remember it for the rest of your life. A strong core will take you places.
