Dating back throughout history, there are a few common trends that we see for health and fitness. We all need to move well, be functional, and have adequate movement capacity to carry out tasks in life. In addition, having “exercise” integrated into our lives leads to higher levels of fitness.

During these times, with gyms and facilities being closed, we just need to focus on moving well, moving often, and practicing fundamental bodyweight exercises.

Practice the basics of squatting, hinging, pushing, pulling, stabilizing, etc. to keep progressing your fitness levels. Bottom line, understand how to move properly and train smart even when we don't have access to equipment or gyms. If you do that, your fitness levels will be so much better in the future.
