We’ve got to stay strong, mentally and spiritually and physically.
I’m going to talk about the last one, because many gyms are closed but fitness never sleeps.
You don’t need fancy equipment to get strong. Eating well helps, obviously, because you can’t out-train a bad diet . . . but you still have to train!
Here’s what Alexander J.A. Cortes calls the Prison Workout:
- 100 pushups
- 100 sit-ups
- 100 body weight squats
Do them in any order or permutation, but do this 3-5 days a week (or more) for a month and get back to me on how body weight exercises just don’t cut it.
And here’s how to do pull-ups sans bar:
- Open a door halfway
- Stuff a towel or something else underneath to prevent the door from moving
- Do pull-ups off the top.
That comes courtesy of my friend Shane Fitzgerald of Dungeons & Deadlifts.
Anthony Arvanitakis is another great resource for body weight exercising. Check out his website for more cool ideas. Integrate body weight into your routine if you have equipment at your house, or do it exclusively if you don’t.
Keep moving and keep strong. Kick Corona-Chan’s wimpy butt!
