No more running through the streets with your buddies. No more getting together for a garage gym workout. No more trips to the climbing gym or skate park.
Raise your hand if this is NOT how you anticipated Spring 2020 to be rolling out. Covid-19 has taken a steam roller to life as usual.
As we’ve all quickly learned, quarantine life blows. All you can hope is that you stay healthy and that your friends and family do the same.
Considering that you might not have access to your normal workout gear, this at-home circuit training session is designed with minimal equipment. Two of the movements – the squat clean and shoulder curl – call for additional resistance, so load up a backpack with some old text books. A couple of jugs of water can add decent weight too. Look around your house to see what you can throw together.
Have fun and stay healthy everyone!

I’m re-reading my copy of Parkour Strength Training, and finding all kinds of great stuff that I’d forgotten. In particular, the emphasis on wall dips over pushups, and the section on landings (which is just as much a section on jumps). All good stuff that is already informing my workouts. Thanks!
That’s great to hear, Philip! I’m glad PST can still be a resource during these strange quarantine days. Where have you been training? I’m itching to get back into the parks once the social distancing ban is lifted!
Where I live (a co-op) there’s a basketball court where there’s enough space behind the basket to put up my gymnastic rings. Once the co-op closed our Fitness Room a few weeks ago, I bought a pair and have been using them ever since: https://images.philipbrewer.net/view.php?p=15859452703245
Today I did some rhomboid rows (to offset the rhomboid pushups I’ve been doing for 4 years now, without enough work on the antagonistic muscles).
Since people can’t gather in groups, the basketball court is mostly idle most days, with just the occasional person shooting baskets by himself, which means I can put up my rings almost anytime I want.
