With so many of us staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic, Trainer Dave Bruton built out exercises and stretches that you can do from home. These workouts are great for student-athletes, teachers and staff, and even family members.

Exercising can reduce anxiety and stress, and also provide as an outlet during these times. You don’t need a gym or, in most cases, even equipment to do these.

Step 1. Pick 4-5 drills from the Warmup section

Step 2. Pick 1 lower body plyometric exercise and 1 upper body exercise
