Strength Training In The Time Of Corona


And this is not medical advice. I just wanted to share what I’ve been doing to keep myself a little sane being (more) cooped up (than usual), while working incessantly.

A few things to get out of the way: If you don’t wanna do this, don’t do this. If you’d like some alternative exercises, here’s a good list by the Fine Gentlemen™ at Stronger by Science.

If you’re doing something else you’d like to share, that’s cool — I’d encourage you to do so. Just understand that I’ve probably already seen it, and decided that I’m gonna do this instead.


Yes, these are affiliate links. Like I say in the video: if you’re good to buy this stuff on your own, please use them so that I can help anyone who isn’t cool to buy this stuff get the equipment. If you’re not cool to get it on your own, drop me a line. I have a contact form, I’m on Twitter. I’m hard to miss. I’m not hoarding Amazon gift cards over here.

There’s no link for the dumbbells. Choose weights that you think you can reasonably do. The more affordable adjustable sets are all sold out, and the alternatives are pretty crazy. Options for adjustable sets that can be expanded are expensive, and back-ordered for hopefully longer than we’ll all be housebound. I’m saying hopefully. Please don’t start an argument with me about being hopeful.

If you know of other sites selling more reasonably priced stuff, leave a comment and I’ll update the post. I know there are some over at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
