In the routines, you can see one of them using dumbbells while the other uses bottles of detergent for the same exercise. They also participate in the #yomemuevoencasa initiative. This means that several times a week, they go live on Instagram for those who want to do a complete HIIT class.

Did you know that Kirsh is one of the favorite personal trainers of celebrities? For example, he’s helped Jennifer Lopez tone her abs, and worked on Liv Tyler’s full body.

In his account @davidkirsh, he associates his workouts with a chain of Gyms (McFit). But during the quarantine, he uploads routines daily so that you sweat as much as possible from your living room or balcony. You can’t miss it!

8. Kayla Itsines: a great program to work out during quarantine

This trainer teaches us that you can exercise from anywhere, including at home. Her BBG program requires minimal equipment, and therefore it’s perfect for people who may already be training at home. However, you can replace any element with whatever you have available.

On her @kayla_itsines account, she launched a beginner exercise special from home, using a chair and dumbbells as the only pieces of equipment (apart from a mat or a similar support surface).

Conclusion

If you’ve never exercised, this is a good time to start. Try to do it slowly and begin with easy exercises. On the other hand, if you miss working out during quarantine, take advantage of having expert trainers available who are offering their services for free online. Stay active!
