At the moment we are all confined to our homes, probably with minimal equipment. The good news is you can still strength train. If you have resistance bands, dumbbells, TRX or a Barbell you are a few steps ahead, if not, I've got you covered!
Here is a program you can start with, either bodyweight or holding DB's or a band. To increase intensity and "fun-ness", download the Tabata Timer app and set it to 45 sec of work with 15 sec rest, or 40 work/20 rest, depending on your fitness level, with around 50 cycles so it doesn't stop during your session. You can do 2-4 rounds, it's up to you!
2. Lunges (either step forward or back)
3. Push ups
4. Mountain Climbers
5. Bicycle Crunch
5. Back Row with a band or Bent Over Row with weights
6. Steps Ups (change legs each step)
Not easy after 3-4 rounds!! Stick to the basics, focus on your technique. Rest for 1 minute after each round if you need to...and don't forget to hydrate.
